Hillary Clinton Wins Big in Pennsylvania
Posted on April 22, 2008Hillary Clinton did it: she won and won big in Pennsylvania. With 91% of the vote counted, she is winning by ten points: 55-45. We'll have to wait to see what the final count is, but any way you slice it it's a huge victory for her. Her campaign reports that they raised $500,000 in one hour after the polls closed.
Hillary's victory speech was one of her best speeches of the campaign. She was very inclusive, very inspirational and not too long. She talked about a World War II veteran who was a Medal of Honor winner who handed her a photograph of himself at the ceremony. He had autographed it to her saying "To Hillary Clinton, don't stop fighting." It was a personal moment she shared and it worked. I like her "I'll fight for you" refrain. Voters like a fighter. We live in a tough world and we need someone who won't quit when the going gets tough.
