Clinton Pushing Forward After Big Primary Wins

March 5, 2008

Hillary Clinton has new life in her campaign and the New York Senator says, she's not ruling out sharing the Democratic ticket with Barack Obama.

"That may be where this is headed, but of course, we have to decide who's on the top of the ticket," said Clinton

Obama hoped to knock Clinton out of the race but, she won big in Ohio and Rhode Island thanks to renewed support from white and working class voters. And it was hispanic voters that gave her the edge in the Texas primary.

The lone star caucus results aren't in yet. Obama is quick to point out he's still ahead in the delegate count and that he will prevail in the next big battle in Pennsylvania.

"At the end of the day, we feel confident that we're gonna have a strong delegate lead, and we'll have a strong claim on the nomination" said Obama.

No matter which Democrat gets the nomination, they will face John McCain in the big battle for the White House. He has picked up enough delegates to lock in the GOP nomination.

"The contest begins tonight!" said McCain.

Despite his sweep of all four states up for grabs Tuesday night, McCain still faces some challenges, like uniting the Republican party.

But Wednesday could mark a turning point. The Arizona senator picked up the endorsement of President Bush, a man who was once his chief rival on the campaign trail.
