Hillary's victory speech 

Hillary's victory speech was pretty good, at least by her standards. She is no Obama, but certainly made it seem as though she were in for the long haul. Frank Luntz, by the way, agreed, calling it "fantastic, absolutely the best speech I've heard her give."

I cannot recall her giving a better one, but that doesn't make it "fantastic." But here is the key point: Hillary Clinton will not quit at anything she truly dedicates herself to do. In that regard, she reminds me of none other than George W. Bush. Of course, stalwart tenacity in Bush might be tedious stubborness in Clinton, but I'm sure Democrats reverse those characterizations.

I noted, by the way, that New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine was in the background behind Hillary, clapping away for the cameras to record. He has apparently recovered from his bout of superdelegate vapors.

Corzine nay be backing Clinton for the same reason that many other unelected delegates will back Clinton.
This us her last chance, she dddoes it this year or not at all. As a consequence, she use everything she has against Obama and then, against McCain.
Clinton still has the FBI files that were acquired when Willie was president. Whatever the number admitted, there are more. She has a raw FBI file on every super delegate who was somebody in 1993. That means all the then members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
We could probably put together a good list of the messengers that Clinton would use to visit with these vulnerable delegates, Begalla, Lanny Davis are a couple. Rahm Emanuel wiukd be on the list but since he is a member of the same Chicago machine that Obama belongs to, we can't be sure.
Tgus, do not expect Hillary to back down and do not expect her to pull punches.
