Hillary has something to say today to those arrogant Obama supporters who think she should drop out even though she still has a realistic chance to win the nomination.

"I'm in it to win it!"

In prepared remarks to be delivered in Harrisburg PA today, she will say:

"The true test comes when it's time to match rhetoric with results," Clinton will say. "And unfortunately, we've seen that Senator Obama's promises and speeches are often just words." ...

"On the campaign trail, Sen. Obama talks about clean energy. But in the Senate, he voted for Dick Cheney's energy bill loaded with new tax breaks for oil companies. When he faced a tough choice, his support for a clean energy future turned out to be just words." ...

"It's like how he talks about fixing NAFTA. But his top economic adviser assured the Canadian government that he wouldn't really follow through. His position? Just words." ...

"Senator Obama promises to withdraw from Iraq within 16 months. But his top foreign policy adviser said he's not really going to rely on that plan. I guess that plan is just words, too." ...

"We need a president who will solve problems, who will fight for our families long after the speeches are over and the cameras are gone. That's the choice in this campaign: Solutions you can rely on -- versus words you can't."

I look forward to the exploding heads on DailyObamaKos today.  

A word of advice - get over yourselves.  Politics ain't beanbag.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
