No, BS wrote the states off.. it's up to the candidate to make their case in all 50 states. Hillary

doesn't write them off

She takes nothing for granted, either.

It's too bad you're insulting voters in Massachusetts, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, TN, Georgia, Virginia, and American Samoa, Iowa, Nevada, and South Carolina.. do please proceed though.

Awww, that's so sweet what you said about not walking away from President Obama, Thinking!

Right.. Hillary actually cares about our country.. she lost in 2008 but she nominated Obama at the convention.. and in his infinite wisdom President Obama chose her to be his SOS.

Turned out to be one of the best decisions he's ever made.. so sayeth the Prez himself!

And, he most certainly wants Hillary to be #45! it's such so great.. these two are such highly respectful friends. That's what friends do.. they help each other.

How Hillary Clinton won the battle for the black vote in South Carolina


She’s been working in and with South Carolinians since the ’70s, but every decade since then, she’s been in and out of the state working with people,” Middleton said. “She has deep roots here, and it has blossomed over the years.”

But all that support seemingly vanished in 2008, when Clinton faced off against Obama, the first African-American major-party presidential primary frontrunner. Rev. Joseph Darby, vice president of the Charleston branch of the NAACP, attributed Clinton’s loss that year to the simple fact that voters had — and wanted to take — the chance to elect the first black president.

“Before that possibility came, Hillary was actually doing quite well,” Darby explained. “She had nailed down a good number of endorsements.”

Nevertheless, even after being beaten by Obama in South Carolina, Clinton never retreated from South Carolina, Darby said.

“I don’t think Hillary’s ever been off the ground except for the little while when there was a tiff after the ’08 primary. She has stayed in touch with the community. She started laying groundwork for this run, oh, probably three or four years ago. She’s had people circulating. … She’s talked to the right folks,” Darby said, adding, “I don’t think South Carolina ever entirely left the Clintons. It might have parked them in the corner for one election, but they’ve maintained good relationships.”


This is how you do it.. you don't retreat.. you build good relationships over the years because you care about your friends. That's how Hillary WON South Carolina. The Voters Are Smart.. they know who their friends are.

Hillary Clinton waved to supporters at a rally in Columbia, S.C., after winning the South Carolina Democratic presidential primary on Saturday. "We're not taking anything, and we're not taking anyone for granted," she told supporters.

What President Obama’s legacy means to me

Jan 19, 2016 by Hillary Clinton


On January 20, 2017, America will begin our next chapter. A new president will stand on the steps of the Capitol, raise one hand, and take the oath of office. From that moment on, he or she will decide whether we defend and build on the progress we’ve made under President Obama—or tear it all away.

That feels pretty personal to me—not just as an American who supports President Obama, but also as someone who was proud to work alongside him at the White House.

I remember vividly the day after the 2008 election when President-elect Obama asked me to come see him in Chicago. It turned out that he would ask me to be secretary of state. But first, we talked about everything he was doing to get ready for his first term—and everything he was learning about the reality of the economic crisis our country was facing. The president-elect was getting briefings every day, sometimes several times a day. And the news was not good. He turned to me and said, “It is so much worse than they told us.”

He was right.

By the time President Obama was sworn into office, we were on the brink of another Great Depression. Before the worst was over, we were losing 800,000 jobs a month, 5 million Americans lost their homes, and 13 trillion dollars of family wealth was wiped away. Meanwhile, our auto industry—the pride of American manufacturing and ingenuity for decades—was on the verge of collapse. It turned out to be the second-worst financial crisis in our country’s history.

President Obama changed all that. Look where we are today. We’ve had 70 straight months of private-sector job growth. Our businesses have created 14.1 million jobs. The unemployment rate is the lowest in seven years. And the auto industry just had its best year ever.

More~ Please read the rest of Hillary's excellent piece.. brought tears because of all we've been through.. https://www.hillaryclinton.com/feed/what-president-obamas-legacy-means-me/

Hillary Gets It.. and she's the only one running who does..

Wow.. BS is going to win Vermont and the papers still endorse Hillary!

"The contest between Clinton and Sanders has been framed as a choice between pragmatism and idealism, between incrementalism and boldness. Framing it that way oversells what Sanders offers. Fighting for health care reform, as Clinton has done for a quarter century, has been an exercise in idealism. It has been a long, difficult fight against powerful entrenched interests. The Clinton administration didn’t succeed in the 1990s. The Obama administration has made significant progress, and Clinton is right to underscore the importance of that victory. "


Thank you, Historic NY!
