In It, Yes -- But What if She Doesn't Win?

By Perry Bacon Jr.
ABOARD THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN PLANE -- On her campaign plane Sunday night, Sen. Hillary Clinton said that sometimes the journalists traveling with her over-interpret what she is saying from speech to speech.

"I know you have to hang on every word I say, but sometimes a word is a word is a word," she said on a short flight from Columbus to Toledo just before midnight.

But a few moments later, discussing the future of her campaign, she used a combination of words that were not exactly Huckabeeesque, to invent a term for a candidate who defiantly declares they will continue running for president until their opponent has officially won the delegates needed for the nomination.

"I intend to do as well as I can Tuesday and we'll see what happens after that," Clinton said.

Clinton has not formally echoed the remarks of her husband, who said she needed to win Ohio and Texas to continue her campaign, but has not attempted to correct them, either.
