Clinton Unlikely to Drop Out Tuesday, Says Aide

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- Another city, another clue from the Clinton campaign: this time that she will not, repeat, not, drop out on Tuesday night.

Spokesman Mo Elleithee told reporters that she will take at least several days after Tuesday's primary elections to talk to superdelegates. "She'll be spending the coming days making the case to undecided delegates. She's in this race until we have a nominee. She expects to be that nominee," Elleithee said.

Earlier in the day, however, Clinton's husband, former president Bill Clinton, suggested his wife's campaign would soon be coming to an end.

"I want to say also that this may be the last day I'm ever involved in a campaign of this kind," he said at an event in Milbank, S.D. "I thought I was out of politics, 'til Hillary decided to run. But it has been, one of the greatest honors of my life to go around and campaign for her for president."
