66. *Hillary left South Carolina before the polls closed.*

By the time Edwards was talking about moving on, Sen. Hillary Clinton already had.The lights weren't out at local polling stations before she was on a plane to a Super Tuesday state.

Speaking at a town meeting-style event in Nashville, Tenn., she congratulated her rival, but made it clear this was little more than an evening of the score at two big wins each.

"I've always said that this contest was going to go for a long time. As people have dropped out, it's gotten down to a couple of us. And Feb. 5 has always been for me the key," Clinton said at the campaign event.
