    Default Hillary Clinton compares herself to Rocky Balboa

    Clinton likens herself to 'Rocky'
    Associated Press Writer
    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has something in common with legendary film boxer Rocky Balboa she's not a quitter.
    Recalling a famous scene on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art from the 1976 Oscar-winning film "Rocky," Clinton said that ending her presidential campaign now would be as if "Rocky Balboa had gotten halfway up those art museum steps and said, 'Well, I guess that's about far enough.'"
    "Let me tell you something, when it comes to finishing a fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common. I never quit. I never give up. And neither do the American people," Clinton said in excerpts of prepared remarks to be given Tuesday to a meeting of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO.
    Clinton warned that Democrats won't have an easy time against Republican nominee-in-waiting John McCain in the general, and implied that her rival for the nomination, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, may not be up to the task.
    "The Republicans aren't going to give up without a fight," Clinton said. "And no matter how beautiful your rhetoric, the Republicans aren't going to turn off their attack machine it doesn't have an off-switch."
    "But one thing you know about me is that when I say I'll fight for you, I'll fight for you," the New York senator said. "I know what it's like to stumble. I know what it means to get knocked down. But I've never stayed down, and I never will."
    In recent days, Clinton has made an issue of calls from Obama backers for her to abandon the Democratic race. They've argued that Obama holds the lead in the delegate count and a protracted Democratic primary would damage the eventual nominee.
    "Now, this is one of the most important elections we've ever had. There is so much at stake. But just as it's getting time to vote here in Pennsylvania, Senator Obama says he's getting tired of it. His supporters say they want it to end," Clinton said.
    Obama refused on Saturday to go along with other Democrats who are calling for Clinton to drop out of the race.
    "My attitude is Senator Clinton can run as long as she wants," he said.

    Rocky???? Hillary forgot one thing, though. Most people wanted 'Rocky' to quit after his movies ran out of steam and no longer served a purpose.
