Clinton: Delegates are all fair game

Go to AP original
Hillary Clinton hinted Thursday that she hoped to persuade some delegates pledged to Barack Obama to back her instead. "There is no such thing as a pledged delegate," Clinton said in Burbank, Calif., adding: "The whole point is for delegates, however they are chosen, to really ask themselves who would be the best president and who would be our best nominee against Sen. [John] McCain." While there is no rule requiring pledged delegates won in primaries and caucuses to vote for the candidate, such delegates are selected by the campaigns that won them.
