After watching the CNN debate in South Carolina on Monday night, Assemblywoman Nellie Pou applauded the performance of her presidential candidate, Sen. Hillary Clinton, who during the Democratic Primary tussle bashed what she described as Bush's too little too late economic stimulus package.

"The most important change we can bring to the country is a change in the policies and priorities that have governed from the White House and I believe the best Democrat to deliver that change is Hillary Clinton," said Pou. "The economic injustices of the past eight years need to be reversed and Hillary has the experience and ability to produce the type of change that offers economic opportunity to all."

Obama likewise targeted what he sees as the failed economic policies of the Bush administrationbut took an additional poke at the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) championed by Clinton'shusband when he was president, in adebate thatlargely saw frontrunners Clinton and Obama gunning for each other.

"George Bush has repeatedly skewed the tax code to benefit the wealthy," said Obama.

Debating in his native state five days before the South Carolina primary, Sen. John Edwards also criticized Bush's record on the economy and on issues impacting low and moderate income people.

"We've added five million people to the poverty rolls over the last seven years," said Edwards. Pou applauds Clinton’s anti-Bush economic message
