Hillary Clinton’s speech at Al Sharpton’s convention in midtown this afternoon was tamer than her previous appearance alongside the Reverend.
But she did manage to get a rise out of the audience on a couple of occasions.
On the need for a new energy policy, Hillary said that there were “diseases moving north; the desert spreading, more intense storms; we need to face up to the fact that we’re stewards of God’s creation and we have an obligation to make sure we don’t pass on this wonderful world that we did nothing to create in worse shape than when we found it. That is a call to action for people of faith and people everywhere.”
She also talked about ethics.
“We have to reform our government,” she said. “The abuses that have gone on in the last six years — I don’t think we know the half of it yet. You know, when I walk into the Oval Office in January of 2009, I’m afraid I’m going to lift up the rug and I’m going to see so much stuff under there.”
“You know, what is it about us always having to clean up after people?” she asked. “But this is not just going to be picking up socks off the floor. This is going to be cleaning up the government.”
