Clinton Ignores Losses and Looks Ahead to Texas, Ohio

Feb 10, 2008 2:39pm

ABC News’ Jake Tapper and Eloise Harper Report: Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., has not made one mention of her losses Saturday in Nebraska, Louisiana, and Washington.

Campaigning on Sunday Manassas, VA, Clinton didn’t congratulate Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., or acknowledge that there is a race in play in the state of Maine.

Continuing to lower expectations at her first rally of the day, Clinton said, "I haven’t had the pleasure of campaigning in Virginia as much as I would have liked."

Clinton’s campaign headquarters are located in Virginia, but perhaps Clinton doesn’t visit that office frequently due to her intense travel schedule.

Clinton indirectly criticized her opponent saying, "People say to me all of the time you are so specific, you talk about all of these things you want to do. Why don’t you really just come and give us one of these great rhetorical flourishes and then get everybody all whooped up."

Clinton took numerous questions from the audience outlining specific policy plans and ideas she has for problems such as economy, global warming and the housing market.

Clinton’s campaign is setting expectations low for the upcoming "Potomac Primaries" that take place on Tuesday. Instead, they are hoping for big wins in Texas and Ohio on March 4 to bring their delegate count back up in front of Obama.
