Hillary Makes Campaign Stop At Historic Allen University

We here at The Chase will keep following Shillary and her rhetoric. It won’t take long for her to contradict herself. We’ll try to have a towel handy for the egg on her face.

“I believe this campaign is about breaking barriers. This is the campaign and I am the candidate with the experience to break barriers,” words from Hillary Clinton in front of an excited crowd at Allen University.

It was the first stop along her campaign trail in South Carolina.

Breaking barriers is what she says she hopes to do with a number of key issues affecting South Carolinians.

“The unemployment rate in South Carolina is higher than the national average. I don’t understand that . We have to create new jobs. You also don’t have a minimum wage that’s why we need to raise it,” said Clinton.

Senator Clinton also addressed energy conservation, and universal healthcare but it was education that grabbed the interest of students on this college campus.

“Did you know last year there were more bankruptcies than college graduates in America. So, we are out of balance. We are not investing in the future the way we used to,” said Clinton

Investing in our soldiers is also something Senator Clinton addressed — while outlining a plan to protect and reduce deployed troops.

“We need to stand up behind the young men and women who wear the uniform and say we are with you we are going to back you up,”says Clinton.

And check out the reaction from the college kids. Raphael is articulate, isn’t he?

Reaction

It was a platform that connected with many supporters here at Allen University.

“I thought it was wonderful. It was well put together and there were allot of answers and she seemed comfortable, so it made me comfortable,”says Nezhla Sanderson, Miss. Allen University.

— Comfortable with change and breaking barriers — a message Senator Clinton hoped would resonate with voters as she addressed the war in Iraq.

“Though I don’t support the war the soldiers need support if they’re going to be over there,”said Dwayne Smith, SGA Allen University.

Clinton outlined a plan to protect deployed soldiers and reduce the number of troops during the town hall meeting.

But, it was talk of lower interest rates on student loans and year round pell grants that caught the ear of many students.

“Student loans yes, pell grants more … we don’t have nothing,”said Raphael Drumlond, Student.

Rather than a vote of support, some people say they walked away with more unanswered questions.

“She skirted the issues and instead talked about running politically for office,”said Andre Smith, an attendee.

I noticed that the MSM article didn’t include the little tidbit about Shillary passing on some payolla to buy the southern black vote away from her African America and southern opponents…You go girlfriend!

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday denied that her campaign traded money for an endorsement from one of South Carolina’s most influential black politicians.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Clinton responded to questions about the consulting contract her campaign negotiated with state Sen. Darrell Jackson, who last week endorsed her candidacy rather than of top rivals John Edwards or Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.

“Senator Jackson was someone who was involved in my husband’s campaigns. He was someone we turned to for political advice and counsel and I’m proud to have him on my team,” Clinton told the AP.

Soon after the endorsement, Jackson acknowledged that his media consulting firm had negotiated a $10,000 per month contract with Clinton’s campaign. Jackson has said he turned down more lucrative contracts from other candidates.
