Clinton rejects call to quit race

US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has rejected calls by supporters of her rival, Barack Obama, to abandon her campaign for the Democratic nomination.


Senator Patrick Leahy, an influential Democrat and Obama supporter, had said that by remaining in the race she was helping the Republican Party. Mrs. Clinton told supporters she had no intention of abandoning the race. The New York senator is trailing Mr. Obama in the number of delegates needed to obtain the nomination.

But the latest opinion polls suggest that she is leading Mr. Obama by more than 10 points in the next major primary in Pennsylvania on 22 April. “There are some folks saying: ‘Well, we ought to stop these elections’,” she told a crowd at a high school in Indianapolis, Indiana.

“I didn’t think we believed that in America. I thought we of all people knew how important it was to give everyone a chance to have their voices heard.” Former President Bill Clinton said those calling for his wife to pull out of the race should “just relax”.

Pity, she should realize that is over and she should step down and give her full support to Obama. Somehow she has to understand that this hearts more the democratic party than anything McCain could do!
