Sen. Hillary Clinton meets with voters in Texas

HOUSTON — In her first visit to Texas since announcing her presidential candidacy, Sen. Hillary Clinton on Saturday praised hundreds of Houstonians for their help in responding to Hurricane Katrina and said she would lead a more competent government than the Bush Administration if elected.

"We have to have leadership again that asks us to step up and show the world who Americans are and what we can do," said Clinton, who met with mostly female supporters at a breakfast hosted by U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston, and then spoke at Wesley African Methodist Episcopal Church.

She acknowledged that the Lone Star state is a Republican stronghold but said, "I love Texas too much to leave it to the other side."

Clinton, who leads her Democratic contenders in polls, praised the diversity of her party's candidates, referring to Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, who is black, and Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, who is Hispanic.

High-profile women back Hillary Clinton

When a woman is trying to break the "hardest and highest" glass ceiling she is entitled to seek a little help from her friends, and Hillary Clinton has been promised that, and more, by three high-profile women determined to help her to the White House next year.

Geraldine Ferraro, who in 1984 became America's first female vice-presidential candidate, has organized a "rapid reaction force" of prominent women who will defend Mrs Clinton on TV networks.

Madeleine Albright, the former Secretary of State, and Billie Jean King, the tennis champion and campaigner for women's rights, are being touted as members of the team.

All three women made breakthroughs in their own fields, while Miss Albright has also helped to raise $1 million.

Clinton Urges Health Care For All

Dubuque, Ia. — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Sunday made a stronger pitch for universal health care and again defended her Iraq position, at the outset of a campaign swing through Iowa.

Beginning with an evening event attended by more than 500 people at the University of Dubuque, Clinton's two-day stop in the leadoff caucus state was tightly controlled and not yet the retail campaign she promised when she launched her campaign in January.

"I have some goals. One of them is we're going to have universal health care coverage," the New York senator said, prompting loud cheers from the capacity crowd on the Dubuque campus.

Clinton Says Market Losses Are Wakeup Call on Foreign-Held Debt

March 2 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. government needs to take action to address the amount of foreign-held U.S. debt after receiving a ``wakeup call'' in the form of a global market selloff, New York Senator Hillary Clinton said.

Clinton, a Democratic presidential candidate, said stock losses spurred by a plunge in Chinese shares this week illustrated the vulnerability of the U.S. economy. In a Feb. 28 letter to Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, she said the U.S. can ``too easily be held hostage'' to economic decisions made in foreign capitals.

"The level of our public debt that is now held by central banks and foreign governments is a problem,'' Clinton said in an appearance on the CNBC television channel yesterday. "I don't want the administration to ignore this wakeup call.''
