FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
There's a growing number of voices saying Hillary Clinton should get out of the race unless she can deliver big victories tomorrow in Texas and Ohio.
Governor Bill Richardson, who hasn't endorsed anyone yet, says quote, "I just think that D-Day is Tuesday", adding that whoever has the most delegates after tomorrow should be the nominee.
Some top Democrats who have backed Barack Obama are making the same argument. Senator John Kerry says Clinton needs more than narrow victories to stay in this thing.
And Senator Dick Durbin says the delegate math makes it tough for Clinton to win the nomination. He says, "I just hope ultimately she makes an honest appraisal of her chances… I hope that her decision on her future after Tuesday is made in the interest of unity of our party."
But, Senator Dianne Feinstein says Clinton should ignore the pressure to quit the race, that she has every right to stay in it if that's what she chooses.
And if you listen to Clinton, it doesn't sound like she's going anywhere. She believes she'll do "very well" tomorrow and will then move on to Pennsylvania and other upcoming contests, adding "I'm just getting warmed up."
It looks like her campaign is also trying to raise expectations for Obama, saying that if Obama loses any of the four contests tomorrow, that would mean Democrats are having second thoughts about him.
Here’s my question to you: If Hillary Clinton doesn't win both Texas and Ohio tomorrow, should she quit the race?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
I am a feminist, but this time I believe that Hillary should do as her husband says. If she wants to appear gracious, she will drop out. If she wants to stay in and try to claw her way to the nomination, it will be ugly and do damage to any future she may have in the Senate. Sometimes you just need the judgment to know when it's over.
Michael from Danbury, Connecticut writes:
She should recognize that the only way she can get the nomination is if it is stolen from Obama by the superdelegates. At that point, the party will be split. I will either vote for Obama or for McCain. Never for Clinton.
Vilma from San Jose, California writes:
Of course she should stay in! Otherwise she is surrendering to the string-pullers in the backrooms. And, this election will depend in good measure to what is going on in the world: domestic economics, world de-stabilization and wars, etc. I am inspired by Obama's words but nervous about his naivete and non-specifics. It will take courage and straight talk to deal with what will challenge us from outside our shores. Hang in there, Hillary.
Cheryl from Cocoa, Florida writes:
Hillary doesn't seem to understand, but this is about change for regular Americans. As an Independent in Florida, I am prepared to vote against any incumbent running in any election on my ballot. Hillary's (and McCain’s) experience just looks like the same old thing that got us into this mess. I am ready for change, and will vote that way in November.
The last time I checked, the required number of delegates of 2,000+ had not been reached by either Obama or Clinton. She should continue her campaign. This is still a "live" contest as far as I am concerned.
Yes, she should quit if she loses either Texas or Ohio. She's moved the goal posts so often she could get a job with an NFL ground crew.
