The New York senator brought up the issue near the top of a speech sponsored by the Alliance for American Manufacturing, to quite a few murmurs in the crowd.
"I understand my opponent came this morning and he spent a lot of his time attacking me," she said, before being interrupted with several seconds of murmurs and groans from the crowd. "Well, you know, I know that many of you, like me were disappointed by recent remarks that he made.”
More groans and at least one “No" from the crowd.

So Hillary Clinton gave an interview to Time (click to second page)expressing her clear view that none of the votes cast in the primaries or caucuses should count:
[E]very delegate with very few exceptions is free to make up his or her mind however they choose. We talk a lot about so-called pledged delegates, but every delegate is expected to exercise independent judgment.
Let me rephrase that for you: Every Democrat who thought they were voting for a candidate was really expressing an advisory opinion. Delegates must vote however they think is best no matter what the mere voters said.

One had only to look at Senator Obama's eyes as they darted from one teleprompter to the next during his concession speech on March 4th to realize just how angry he was. You could sense that he was not pleased that someone had actually taken the inevitability out of his campaign and how irritated he was that reporters were finally asking him some tough questions, the kind of questions they normally would have been asking ANY other candidate months ago. Yes, The One, was pissed.
You see, Senator Obama doesn't think that it is fair to question his word on anything. So when, after a series of denials, word leaked out that a memo showed he was lying about his advisor meeting with the Canadian government and discussing NAFTA well he was noticeably pissed. Today's New York Times says that: Obama Comes Out Punching.
Flying from Texas back home to Chicago on Wednesday morning, Mr. Obama delivered the message that he intended to counterpunch forcefully. Mr. Obama took aim on Wednesday at Mrs. Clinton's claim that she is a seasoned hand in foreign policy. "What exactly is this foreign experience that she's claiming?" he said. "I know she talks about visiting 80 countries. It is not clear. Was she negotiating treaties or agreements or was she handling crises during this period of time? "My sense is the answer's no."
