Senator Hillary Clinton spent her morning at a small Las Vegas business, answering primarily health care and economy questions from working class Las Vegas residents.
"It's heartbreaking," she said about the foreclosure crisis. "These are people who get up every morning and working hard. And, frankly they were given some bad information."
Clinton pushed her health care initiative, calling on universal health care and opening up the same plan given to Congress to all Americans. She also called for increased attention to green energy.
A&B Printing has 45 employees. But they seemed dwarfed by the more than 100 media members crammed into the company's small offices on South Highland Drive.
The business is owned by partners Kathy Gillespie and Barbara Allen, who moved to the city about a decade ago from Upstate New York. Clinton said the women were an example of the American Dream and commended them for offering employee health care.
The candidate did not mention Senator Barack Obama by name.
"My leading opponent said he thought Republicans had better ideas than Democrats over the last 15 years," she said. "I think we know what needs to be done in American and we're ready to do it."
Clinton was going to spend the rest of the day in Elko and Reno before returning to Henderson for her final pre-caucus appearance, a rally at 8:30 p.m at Greenspun Junior High School.
