This particular democratic race is becoming more and more contentious as the days go by. Read the entry below. View the video by clicking on the topic and tell me what you think. IS this good or bad for the Clinton campaign and any hopes she may have in the future?

> By Geoff Earle
> May 23, 2008 -- New York Post
> Hillary Clinton today brought up the assassination of Sen. Robert
Kennedy while defending her decision to stay in the race against
Barack Obama.
> "My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the
California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all
remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't
understand it," she said, dismissing calls to drop out.
> Clinton made her comments at a meeting with the Sioux Falls
Argus-Leader' s editorial board while campaigning in South Dakota,
where she complained that, "People have been trying to push me out of
this ever since Iowa."
> Obama, the first African-American to advance so far in the race for
the White House, has faced threats, sources have said.
> Robert Kennedy, the younger brother of President John F. Kennedy,
was gunned down in 1968 after winning the California primary. He had
been a hero on the left for his civil rights agenda and calls to end
the war in Vietnam.
> Barack Obama, who leads Clinton by nearly 200 delegates and has
already secured a majority of pledged delegates, has been the subject
of threats. Early in the campaign, the Secret Service gave him a
security detail at the request of Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Illinois) .
> Clinton criticized an "urgency" to end the campaign prematurely,
saying, "Historically, that makes no sense."
