Hillary Clinton, facing a de facto deadline from party leaders to wrap up the race, still is rallying supporters and rolling out endorsements four days before the final two primaries.
The New York senator was endorsed Friday by the Argus Leader, the largest newspaper in South Dakota, which votes alongside Montana Tuesday.
Her campaign basically has given the OK for supporters to protest on Saturday outside a Democratic National Committee meeting that will take up the disputed Florida and Michigan primaries, which Clinton won but were discounted because the states held early primaries in violation of party rules.

The Argus Leader. Wow.
"Let's see?!? Mr. Walker endorsed me! Good ol' Johnny. And Jackie D. Hmmm...who else. Oh yea, and Chris Farley. Such a nice boy. I was just talking to him the other...what? Hmm? No, I did not throw up on your shoes. No. I don't know. Excuse me but I am doing an interview here. Where was I? Huh? Oh, yea. I love you, man."
“The New York senator was endorsed Friday by the Argus Leader, the largest newspaper in South Dakota...”

Clinton supporters heading to D.C.

A group of Triangle-area Hillary Clinton supporters are going to D.C.
Catherine Evangelista, a full-time political volunteer who helped set up the Clinton Meetup group before the May 6 primary, said a number of Clinton supporters will leave on a chartered bus at 2 a.m. tomorrow morning to attend the Rules & Bylaws Committee meeting.
The 30-member committee will decide what to do about delegates from the Michigan and Florida primaries. The two states moved their election date up in defiance of the Democratic National Committee, which originally stripped them of all delegates.
Evangelista, 45, of Cary, says the group believes along with Clinton that she should receive the delegates from those states, even though no Democratic candidate campaigned in them and Barack Obama's name was not on the Michigan ballot.
"Obama talks about having judgment," she said. "He tends to focus on the fact that he didn't vote for the war, but it was his judgment to pull his name off the ballot, and my understanding is that was political positioning prior to the Iowa caucuses. ... I think that shows a little more vision and planning on her part."
She also noted that Obama aired ads in media markets neighboring Florida, so some Floridians would have seen those ads.
Evangelista, who took a year off from a job in marketing to work on political causes after a car accident, said she does not see any reason for Clinton to concede the race until Aug. 28 the last day of the Democratic national convention.
On to D.C. Give ‘em #ell, Hillary!!
That ranks up there at the top with Potlatch’s “Red Phone at Three A.M.” toon.
