NEW YORK (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton refused to surrender to Barack Obama in the Democratic race for the U.S. presidency on Tuesday or to acknowledge she had reached the end of the road in her bid for the White House.
Rather than concede the loss to Obama, the New York senator told a cheering crowd she would consult supporters and party leaders to decide the future of her campaign.
Clinton praised Obama and vowed to help unite the party to defeat Republican John McCain, 71, in November's election but added defiantly: "This is a long campaign and I will be making no decisions tonight."

Huh? How do you refuse to surrender (after implying you would for several weeks WHEN the mathematical threshhold of 2118 was reached by "a" candidate) -AND- vow to help unite the party AT THE SAME TIME? From the moment that Obama clinched this nomination, every minute that she refuses to appropriately and publicly congratulate him on this historic achievement, she declares that this is about her ego and NOT the "unity of the party." What crap. I am so utterly gleeful that Barack Obama has succeeded. EVERY OTHER CANDIDATE (in both parties) has immediately congratulated the survivor(s) as they made their appropriate exits from this campaign. HRC, what little credibility you have left is dissolving by the minute.
