The New York Democrat broke a 12-contest winning streak by her rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama.

      Clinton also won Rhode Island, while Obama won Vermont. Cinton’s victories mean the Democratic race will continue at least through the Pennsylvania primary on April 22.

       Clinton attributed her wins to the belief of voters that she would be the best candidate to protect the nation.

"For me, this election has always been about who can be the best president, and, you know, that includes who can be the best commander in chief"
