SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Hillary Rodham Clinton says she will remain in the presidential race "until there's a nominee." The former first lady declined to say whether that meant through the roll call of the states at the Democratic National Convention this summer.

Clinton also disclosed that she had loaned her campaign an additional $6.4 million in recent weeks, additional evidence that her once front-runner campaign was in deep trouble.

She told reporters the loans were a sign of her commitment to her quest for the White House. She earlier loaned herself $5 million as she struggled to keep up with a better-financed Obama campaign.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama pocketed the support of at least four Democratic convention superdelegates on Wednesday, building on the momentum from a convincing North Carolina primary victory.

Obama, now the front-runner, was home in Chicago during the day as his aides spread word that he would soon begin campaigning in states likely to be pivotal in the fall campaign. They also relayed word of the four endorsements, expected to be made public later in the day.

Both disclosures were meant to signal fresh confidence that the nomination was quickly coming into his possession after a grueling marathon across 15 months and nearly all 50 states.

How exactly is she going to raise $11 million (+ interest, no doubt) to pay herself back?

Matt this is just proof how disconnected she is from reality...and in this case her own reality. If she can't run the finances of her own campaign god knows what she'll do with the country...?

Thinking about it, being a sitting senator from the great state of New York is a great way to pull in cash.

"So, Rupert, you'd like me to vote against that new FCC legislation, eh? Well, I happen to know a certain campaign that could use your help..."
