Clinton Promotes Message of Change
Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., spent the Labor Day weekend campaigning in New Hampshire and Iowa. She was joined by husband former President Clinton as she, according to a campaign press release, “made clear that she has the strength and experience to deliver the change America needs.”
The Clinton campaign released a second television ad Wednesday, and plans to air it in Iowa and New Hampshire. In a press release, the campaign said the ad “touches on the four goals for change Hillary has been discussing on the campaign trail: restoring America’s leadership in the world; rebuilding the middle class economy; reclaiming the future for our children; and bringing back the values of integrity, fairness and tolerance in America.”
Clinton spoke at the Alliance for Retired Americans’ Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday and then attended a fund raiser at a Washington nightclub. She appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show Tuesday for its premiere episode, while former President Clinton continued a media blitz of his own. He appeared on Oprah — who has already endorsed Illinois Democratic Sen. Barack Obama — and the Late Show with David Letterman. He had more appearances set for Wednesday on the “Today Show” and CNN’s “Larry King Live.”
The Los Angeles Times detailed the duo’s string of media appearances, noting: “The couple demonstrates the raw power of celebrity … just as the Democratic presidential primary race enters its most competitive stage.”
Hillary Clinton is scheduled to participate in a panel discussion for Club 44 “Women Win with Hillary” on Wednesday. Other panelists include Ellen Malcolm, the president of Emily’s List and Rep. Allyson Schwartz, D-Pa. The senator also plans to hold a news conference on Capitol Hill with Reps. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., on the Government Accountability Office’s report about the Environmental Protection Agency’s Test and Clean program, which aims to address indoor contamination resulting from the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center.
Friday, Clinton plans to speak at the New Jersey Democratic Convention in Atlantic City, N.J., then head to Boston for an appearance at the AARP ‘s “Life @ 50+” event.
