WASHINGTON--Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) is sticking to one of her main themes regarding her leadership. She's got the experience.
It came in a question posed to Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) about why he would be better than Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) or Clinton, the front-runners.
Kucinich looked back, not forward, in talking about his opposition to the Iraq war.
Clinton, asked to respond chanted her mantra: “The issue is which one of use is ready to lead on Day One.”
No one challenged her statement.
And pressed if she would use the word liberal to describe herself...she sidestepped a yes or no and said "I consider myself a modern progressive."
