Since our days in Arkansas, I have known Senator Clinton to be a compassionate leader, who has dedicated her life to making our country and its people strong. Last night during the debate, Senator Clinton demonstrated grace under fire by rising above negative campaign tactics and instead reaffirmed her commitment to bring positive change for our country. By promising to turn away from President Bush's failed policies and addressing real issues like Iraq and Social Security, Clinton shows she will not be sidetracked from the mission to make our country a better place for all Americans.
