Hillary Clinton thinks she’s Rocky.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton says she has something in common with legendary film boxer Rocky Balboa — she’s not a quitter. Recalling a famous scene on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art from the 1976 Oscar-winning film “Rocky,” Clinton said that ending her presidential campaign now would be as if “Rocky Balboa had gotten halfway up those art museum steps and said, ‘Well, I guess that’s about far enough.'”

“Let me tell you something, when it comes to finishing a fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common. I never quit. I never give up. And neither do the American people,” Clinton said in excerpts of prepared remarks to be given Tuesday to a meeting of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO.

Yeah, she never quits, and she’ll make sure no one is left alive either. At least in the movie, you got a sense that Rocky was fighting for Philly, and the guys in his neighborhood, and for Mickey, and (in later movies) the memory of Apollo Creed, etc. Hillary is fighting for no one but herself.
