Clinton Talking Economics

ZANESVILLE, OH — I’m hear at a Hillary Clinton “Economic Solutions Summit.” The idea is the bring together political and business leaders to emphasize economic issues in the state. Among the notables in addition to Clinton are Sen. John Glenn, Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, and New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine. Will update if anything interesting happens.

UPDATE: Clinton is surrounded by 7 people on each side, and is asking each of them to speak about their concerns. “I will be a president, just like I have been a Senator, who listens,” she said.

First she turned to a GM union worker who asked–miraculously–about universal health care. Clinton was glad, and no doubt shocked, shocked, that he brought it up.

A couple who were the victims of foreclosures spoke about their experiences, and then Ted Strickland discussed problems facing Ohio. Every speaker, of course, is sure to emphasize why Clinton would make the best president.

Gov. Jon Corzine, meanwhile, just endorsed Clinton’s idea of a moratorium on foreclosures. That a man with a background as a financial executive would endorse a such an ill-conceived economic policy is utterly amazing, even for a Democrat.
