Description

SPRINGFIELD, MA -- In a stump speech today from this February 5 state, Clinton talked about the different perspective she would bring to the White House -- as a daughter, wife, and mother. It seemed intended to connect with women voters. "I will bring to the White House my perspective as a daughter, as a wife, as a mother, because that's never been in the White House before," she said to applause and cheers from the crowd. "I know what it's like to have to be at work and your baby wakes up sick. I know what it's like when the babysitter calls in sick. I know what it's like when the appointment you thought would be done by time for you to pick your child up from school keeps going and going and you can't get out of it. I mean, I have lived this and I know how hard parents today are working." She also made a point of mentioning having received the endorsement of US Rep. Jim McGovern (D), an Iraq war critic who represents Central and Southeastern Massachusetts. "I was very honored to receive the support and endorsement of Cong. Jim McGovern, who has been one of the most consistent critics and opponents of the war in Iraq and he endorsed me. And some people said, 'Well, why would you endorse Sen. Clinton?' And I was so humbled by his response, which was that because he trusts me and believes in me to end it the right way."
