LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has come back again after being counted out in the race for the Democratic nomination. But her triumph in Kentucky's primary on Tuesday made little difference in her quest to catch up with Barack Obama.

"It's not just Kentucky bluegrass that's music to my ears, it's the sound of your overwhelming vote of confidence, even in the face of some pretty tough odds," Clinton told her supporters in Kentucky. Oregon also was voting Tuesday, and was expected to tilt toward Obama.

With just two weeks and three contests left in the primary season, it is unlikely that Clinton can close the delegate gap with Obama.
