In a speech in Philadelphia today, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, compared herself to Philly icon Rocky Balboa. Watch the VIDEO HERE. "Well, could you imagine if Rocky Balboa had gotten half way up those Art Museum steps and said, ‘Well, I guess that’s about far enough?’" Clinton asked. "Let me tell you something, when it comes to finishing the fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common," she will tell the Pennsylvania A.F.L.-C.I.O. audience. "I never quit.  I never give up.  And neither do the American people." Um….Senator?  Rocky lost. It was a split decision, but the judges (superdelegates?) awarded the fight to Rocky’s black opponent, Apollo Creed. ANNOUNCER: Judge Walker scores it eight-seven Creed… Judge Roseman scores it eight-seven Balboa. Judge Conners scores it nine-six Creed… Winner and still Heavyweight Champion of the World, Apollo Creed! (As a Philadelphian, I am not going to get into Rockys II through 6.) – jpt The Republican National Committee reminds me that Sylvester Stallone has endorsed Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. Watch HERE.
