Hillary sweeps Florida; says she will clean White House

Hillary Clinton raised more than $100,000 this morning at a $100-per-plate "women's breakfast'' at Jungle Island.

"If there ever was a time for a woman president it's now," she told a mostly female crowd of nearly 1,000. "We're going to have to do a lot of cleaning up after President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Ladies, get out your mops and brooms."

Later she headed to Lake Buena Vista to join her Democratic rivals at the National Association of Latino Elected Officials conference. Before her speech, she announced endorsements from a slew of Hispanic leaders, including the only Hispanic Democrats serving in the state legislature, state Reps. Luis Garcia of Miami Beach and Darren Soto of Orlando.

"We're in a mess right now, and we need someone to get us out,'' Garcia said. "I think Hillary is that type of person."
