Clinton: No Nominee On Tuesday

ABC News' Eloise Harper reports: Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., thanked Puerto Ricans Sunday night for helping her to victory on the island where she spent five days campaigning, saying "Te quiero Puerto Rico!" Her real message, however, was to the undecided superdelegates who Clinton hopes will veer her way to salvage her campaign.

Clinton's main argument is that she is leading in the popular vote, saying this evening, "More people across the country have voted for our campaign. More people have voted for us than for any candidate in the history of presidential politics. We are winning the popular vote. Now there can be no doubt. The people have spoken, you have chosen your candidate."

The senator argued that there will not be a nominee on Tuesday saying, "So, when the voting concludes on Tuesday, neither Sen. Obama nor I will have the number of delegates to be the nominee. I will lead the popular vote, he will maintain a slight lead in the delegate count. The decision will fall on the shoulders of those leaders in our party, empowered by the rules, to vote at the Democratic convention.
