Clinton Aides: Tomorrow Night's Speech Isn't Concession

More

Senior Clinton campaign aides privy to the construction of tomorrow night's election night celebration in New York insist that Sen. Clinton will not use the occasion to drop out of the race.

They project that Clinton will do better than expected in South Dakota, losing by a margin of less than ten points; they project a sizable loss in Montana.

Meanwhile, NBC News reports Bill Clinton, "acknowledging the campaign's likely fate," said in South Dakota that "this may be the last day I'm ever involved in a campaign of this kind."

Mr. Clinton, aides said, was referring to the end of the primary season -- there are no remaining places for him to campaign for his wife -- and did not attempt to foreshadow her departure.
