Barack Obama West Virginia Concession Speech

C-SPAN has the video of Barack Obama's concession speech. Hillary Clinton decisively won the West Virginia primary.

West Virginia gives Hillary and her supporters take the contest into June. I have a hard time seeing Hillary go this far and not taking it to the convention floor.

I disagree that this victory gives Hillary a chance or a reason to continue. Last saturday, I looked at the poll numbers for the states left, based projections and delegate counts off them. HEre's what I came up with. With the results from WV, it looks like the 65% I gave to Hillary in my projection was spot on. But as you'll notice throughout the rest of the race, this doesn't matter -- the hole Hillary dug herself into is already too deep to climb out of. She definitively lost the campaign last tuesday -- god forbid if the media actually reports it, though.

I know Hillary will never get enough delegates. I just can't see her giving up. It's not in her nature.

Sad that Obama did not give a concession speech for WV. WV is a state the Democrats can win in November, and poor sportsmanship is not something Mountaineers stand.

The link someone posted as a concession speech is actually a normal speech, before the polls closed, and is about economics.
