The "thing is far from over," key Hillary Clinton aide says

May 14, 2008 |  6:30 pm

Terry McAuliffe, chairman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, issued a terse statement in the wake of John Edwards' endorsement of Barack Obama today.

"We respect John Edwards, but as the voters of West Virginia showed last night, this thing is far from over."

We suspect there might have been stronger views expressed within the Clinton camp when it learned of Edwards' decision which, of course, took the edge off her crushing win in the Mountain State.
