Hillary Clinton takes shots at Donald Trump in South Carolina victory speech

"I am so greatly appreciative because today you sent a message," Hillary Clinton began her victory speech in South Carolina on Saturday night. "In America, when we stand together, there is no barrier too big to break."

Basking in an absolutely dominating victory over Bernie Sanders, Clinton went on to promise her supporters, "We are not taking anything, and we are not taking anyone, for granted." She also veered into Sanders' territory, stressing the importance of grassroots donors powering her campaign. Her speech also took a turn for the more somber when she named the mothers of black children and adults who have been killed in recent months in police confrontations.

But perhaps most significantly, Clinton took a number of pointed shots at Donald Trump without using his name, stressing, "We don't need to make America great again" or "build a wall." She very well may already be looking ahead to the general election, where Trump is looking more and more like the likely GOP nominee. Clinton additionally vowed, "Tomorrow, this campaign goes national."

Her win undoubtedly makes her supporters feel more comfortable ahead of the crucial Super Tuesday votes on March 1.
