Clinton Invokes Eleanor Roosevelt

Despite Clinton's historic candidacy, the women's movement finds itself wrenchingly divided over the Democratic race as it heads toward the finish: are the activist women supporting front-runner Barack Obama betraying their gender? or are Clinton's feminist backers mired in an outdated, women's-liberation mind-set?

Eleanor, W.Va. (AP) Hillary Clinton, who's heading for what's expected to be a substantial win Tuesday in West Virginia's primary, is easing off the jabs at her opponent.

Campaigning in the mountain state Sunday, she pledged anew that she'll support the democratic nominee “no matter what happens.”

Clinton is rejecting any suggestion that she's dropping out of the race despite Barack Obama's commanding lead in pledged delegates and loss of her lead among superdelegates. She says supporters are urging her to fight on.

At an evening campaign stop, Clinton quoted Eleanor Roosevelt: “A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she's in hot water.”

Obama stayed home in Chicago yesterday, but he plans to campaign in West Virginia and Kentucky today.
