Eastwood Encourages Clinton

Veteran actor CLINT EASTWOOD has urged presidential hopeful HILLARY CLINTON to keep fighting in the ongoing race leading up to the next U.S. election.
The Dirty Harry star, a supporter of Republican presidential candidate John MCCain, has told the New York senator and former First Lady not to give up - despite the fact her rival Barack Obama currently has the majority of pledged delegates for the Democratic nomination.
He says, "Everybody's trying to talk her into folding, but it doesn't seem like the spirit of America.
"I watch Clinton and feel sorry for her and wonder, 'What are all these people telling her to run away for?'
"She's showing her strength by hanging in there. Put yourself in her place. You've gone out there and made a thousand speeches, shaken a million hands and been out there working your ass off. Then somebody comes up and says, 'Why don't you just drop out of it?'"
Obama has now claimed a 1,961 delegates compared to Clinton's 1,779, according to Fox News. The winner will go on to fight Republican candidate MCCain to become U.S. President in the nationwide vote later this year (08).
