LAist Interview: Senator Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton, via her site.
As we speak, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is in a heated, two-way battle for the Democratic nomination with Illinois Sen. Barack Obama. Clinton has enjoyed a strong lead in California, the grand prize of today's Super Tuesday, but has seen some of her poll numbers slip recently.
LAist asked to interview both Clinton and Obama in January. Both camps agreed, questions were sent and, as of 3:30 Tuesday, only the New York Senators' answers were received.
We asked Clinton about some of the issues that most affect the city, the state, the country and the world. Her answers, though lengthy, are printed below without edits, allowing readers to gain a more complete view of the politician that is aiming to make history as the first woman President.
