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."

hahaha ya right

Kinda like the White House had to be scrubbed after Bill and Hillary left, huh?

Hillary Clinton is clearly the front-runner in Florida as elsewhere. However, expecting Hillary and Bill Clinton to clean the White House is like asking Al Capone lead the fight against crime.

Who understood crime better than Capone, right?

Ethic-less

The woman lacks ethics, morals, and espouses failed ideological principles.

How stupid can this segment of the electorate be?

It is early... I am all for a woman taking the reins in the Whitehouse... JUST NOT THIS WOMAN! HRC is the Republican Party's FIRST CHOICE... As Hillary is their auto GOTV operation. Hillary inspires people who would not ordinarily care, might stay home or even vote for a non-incendiary Democrat... TO GET OUT ENTHUSIASTICALLY .. and vote... AGAINST HER!

From a Democratic perspective, Hillary IS Corporate America's 1st choice if a Democrat were to win... Hillary will maintain... the Status Quo. Hillary WILL NOT upset the Apple cart. She recently was quoted on the CNN crawler.."I will take a cautious approach to health care Reform" and women are supporting this approach? When speaking to a national conference of INSURANCE/HMO executives a few months back softened their concerns by sayin... "You don't have to worry about me"... (Changing anything) That's WHAT women want? I do not think that the women who cannot afford to cough up $100 dollars want that... I know that I don't... and by the way I deliver health care...

When women and their children are the group suffering most, deprived from access to health care. These women who give a $100 to Hillary are not thinking straight.

Where is Hillary's Plan for Health care Reform? She has none! Where is her plan to exit Iraq? She has none!

Where is Hillary's support for the American Worker? She supports BIG BUSINESS!

Look for the candidate who IS HONEST... Who has detailed plans to address America's most pressing issues... That candidate Is Senator John Edwards!

Remember, these polls are meaningless... The corporate directed comments of the Media pundits and Talking Heads are already wearing thin as they work to manipulate OUR opinions. Think and you will see...

Prominent Latinos Endorse Edwards For President

Chapel Hill, North Carolina – The John Edwards for President campaign announced today that numerous Latino elected officials and community leaders are endorsing Senator John Edwards for president. Latino leaders supporting Edwards include U.S. Representatives Raul Grijalva (AZ) and Charlie Gonzalez (TX), and former New Mexico Attorney General Patricia Madrid, Texas Mexican American Legislative Caucus Vice-Chair Trey Martinez Fischer and former Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund Chair Frank Herrera, Jr.

"I am proud to have the support of these prominent leaders," said Edwards. "Too many Americans today are separated from the opportunities of this country, but working together, we can build One America where all people have the chance to work hard and get ahead. We can guarantee health care for every man, woman and child in this country, eliminate poverty and protect the right to organize, and ensure that future generations have the same opportunities to succeed that I've had."

These leaders are supporting Edwards because of his vision to build One America, where every person has the chance to succeed regardless of race, gender or income. Edwards has proposed bold policies to lift up Latino communities. He has proposed a truly universal health care plan, which would cover every man, woman and child in American, including the one out of every three Latinos who lack coverage. Edwards also has detailed plans to end poverty in America, expand our middle class and strengthen our education system.

"I strongly believe that John Edwards is the right man for the Democrats to nominate for the White House in 2008," said Grijalva. "He has shown principled leadership on the way in Iraq and on economic opportunity in America."

"John Edwards and I share a commitment to improving the lives of working families," said Gonzalez. "He understands, as I do, that the key to economic development is making sure that our society honors and rewards hard work. Any American who is willing to work hard should have the opportunity to create a better life for his or her family, and John Edwards has spent his life fighting to make this happen."

"I am proud to endorse my friend, Senator John Edwards," said Madrid, the first Hispanic woman ever elected to the position of state Attorney General. "He has always fought for real change in women's lives—working tirelessly to raise the minimum wage, end poverty and guarantee universal health care."

"The issues that John Edwards cares most passionately about and talks about everywhere he goes -- eliminating poverty, creating economic opportunities, bringing about universal health care, raising the minimum wage, and making the dream of home ownership more accessible to all Americans – are kitchen table issues for Latino families everywhere in this country," said Rep. Martinez Fischer.
