Clinton Sells a Bailout

Hillary Clinton stressed the importance of Congress passing some kind of bailout legislation on a conference call with reporters today. In making her argument, Clinton connected the crisis on Wall Street with the effects of a poor economy on the average person.

“It sounds dire," she said before I had to jump off the call, "but commerce could grind to a halt.” She went on to say she’s heard from small business owners who “cannot get the credit they need to stay in business,” and she added, “On the personal level, students are going to have increasing trouble finding college loans.”

Both parties have had trouble selling the financial bailout bill to constituents.
