“This Race Isn’t Over Yet”

After romping Obama in West Virginia, Clinton makes clear to supporters she isn’t quitting.

“I am more determined than ever to carry on this campaign until everyone has had a chance to make their voices heard.”

Later adds: “I will work my heart out for the Democratic nominee to make sure we have a Democratic president.”

What does Tim know that he not saying?
Tim Russert:
  1. See what Clinton's supporters tell her tomorrow at a privet meeting at ther Washington DC home.
  2. Watch the Clinton campaign on Thursday when staff payroll is due.
But McAuliffee had this to say:

“Our staff’s fully paid. We’ve opened all of our offices. We’re buying media. We’re doing everything a candidate does for president,” he said. McAuliffe said Clinton “has told me she’d be willing to loan more” of her own money to the campaign if necessary.

But he said the campaign had a good week of online fundraising and also brought in $1 million from a fundraiser Wednesday in Washington.

On Wednesday, McAuliffe said, the campaign is hosting a meeting of about 50 members of its national finance board and also intends to meet with both its superdelegates and those who have yet to commit to a candidate.

McCauliffe vs. Matthews

No love lost between the Clinton camp and NBC, and Terry McAuliffe takes his shot:

OLBERMANN: Well, sir, you had described that as one of the best speeches ever, warned us to anticipate that. Did it meet your expectations?
MCAULIFFE: It did. And I'm sure it sent shivers up Chris Matthews' leg.
MATTHEWS: You know, you keep going back to the golden oldies. How about some new material tonight, Terry?
MCAULIFFE: I'm always going to use that one, Chris. It's too good for me.

Matthews, ambivalent about 'white people'

Chris Matthews, a few minutes ago:

"I even hate saying things like 'white working-class voters.'"

Matthews, 21 seconds later:

"It's almost like she's the Al Sharpton of white people."

R+10 District Goes Blue: “It’s Like a Democrat Losing in Brooklyn”

Absolute shocker tonight as the special election in MS-01, one of the reddest districts on the map, has been won by Democrat Travis Childers. Russert, Matthews, Olbermann, and even Huckabee all agree: this is very, very bad news for the GOP.

Choices, choices

Sasha Issenberg, in Montgomery, WV:

"I'm going to vote for the colored guy," said Henry Ford -- "no, not that Henry Ford," the 87-year old retired carpenter in the Napa Auto Parts hat pointed out. "I don't dislike her, but I don't think a woman can be president of the United States. I don't think she can handle the job."
