It's the "Rocky" Road for Hillary Clinton

In a speech in Philadelphia today, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, compared herself to Philly icon Rocky Balboa.

Watch the VIDEO HERE.

"Well, could you imagine if Rocky Balboa had gotten half way up those Art Museum steps and said, 'Well, I guess that’s about far enough?'" Clinton asked.

"Let me tell you something, when it comes to finishing the fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common," she will tell the Pennsylvania A.F.L.-C.I.O. audience. "I never quit.  I never give up.  And neither do the American people."


Rocky lost.

It was a split decision, but the judges (superdelegates?) awarded the fight to Rocky's black opponent, Apollo Creed.

ANNOUNCER: Judge Walker scores it eight-seven Creed... Judge Roseman scores it eight-seven Balboa. Judge Conners scores it nine-six Creed... Winner and still Heavyweight Champion of the World, Apollo Creed!

(As a Philadelphian, I am not going to get into Rockys II through 6.)
