(Newser) – Hillary Clinton insisted today that she will not drop out of the race early, and Barack Obama thinks that's just fine. Clinton told the Washington Post that she will compete in every primary, then take her fight to the convention in August if necessary. Could any scenario change her mind? "No," she said. In Pennsylvania, Obama said Clinton "can run as long as she wants,” AFP reports.

"I have no intention of stopping until we finish what we started and until we see what happens in the next 10 contests, and until we resolve Florida and Michigan," said Clinton in what the Post characterizes as her most definitive comments to date. "And if we don't resolve it, we'll resolve it at the convention."
