Clinton's rival -- Sen. Barack Obama --is expected to win Oregon by a double-digit margin.

Hillary Clinton
The Clinton Campaign today, launched a new ad in Oregon emphasizing that while the pundits in Washington focus on who’s up and who’s down, Hillary Clinton will focus on what’s right for Oregon families.

(PORTLAND, Ore. ) - The Clinton Campaign today, launched a new ad in Oregon emphasizing that while the pundits in Washington focus on who’s up and who’s down, Hillary Clinton will focus on what’s right for Oregon families.

The 30-second spot, entitled "What’s Right," details Hillary’s commitment to end the No Child Left Behind Act and provide quality, affordable health care for every American. And it emphasizes Hillary’s opposition to the Bush Administration energy bill, which removed local control over the siting of liquefied natural gas terminals on Oregon’s coast.

Mail ballots are due Tuesday, but state elections officials say Friday is the last day to mail-in ballots to make sure they get to county election offices in-time to be counted. Ballots must be received by county elections offices or at official dropsites by 8:00 PM on May 20. Postmarks do not count.

Hillary Clinton, is scheduled to tour an unfinished house and meet with a local family in Junction City at 11:30 AM Friday. Later, she will be in Portland at the KGW-TV studios for a 7:00 PM town hall meeting with invited, undecided voters. Neither Hillary Clinton appearance is open to public.

Bill Clinton along with daughter Chelsea, will be holding a rally at the Salem Riverfront Park Amphitheatre on Sunday. The "Solutions for America" event is scheduled to run from 2:45 - 4:00 PM. To RSVP visit hillaryclinton.com/salem. Beofre the Salem, event, Bill and Chelsea will also participate in an "I Have a Dream" Foundation Service Project at Woodlawn Elementary School in Portland. After Salem, the pair will travel south to Ashland for another "Solutions for America" event at Southern Oregon University in the Stevenson Union Courtyard at 5:15 PM. To RSVP visit hillaryclinton.com/ashland.

The following is the script for the ad:

"What's Right"

ANNCR: In Washington, they talk about who's up and who's down.

In Oregon, we care about what's right and what's wrong.

She's the one who will end No Child Left Behind so we teach children to learn, not take tests.

She's the one who voted against the Bush energy bill that threatens liquefied natural gas plants along Oregon's coast.

She's the one insisting on health coverage for every American

She's been right when it matters.

She'll be there when it counts.

HRC: I'm Hillary Clinton and I approved this message.

Hillary is Toast May 18, 2008 4:54 pm (Pacific time)

As far as I'm concerned, all you Hillary deluded fools can stay home in November. Your rantings and fantasies prove you are unfit to vote. 

 

Dude, you can not use profanity here.

 Thanks,

The management

While it is true that the Democrat Candidate for President Barak Hussein Muhammad Oboma has a Muslim father who is from the country of Kenya within the continent of Africa and other relatives there does not necessarily make him a Muslim or a racist. Obama attended a school in Southeast Asia and a public school living with his mother and grandmother. He claims to be a Christian of faith and attends a Christian church in Chicago, Illinois. It seems to be true that he is proud of his father and other relatives in Kenya but it would be a far stretch to suggest that he is some how connected to the politics in Kenya. The true facts just do not bear this out. While his connections to Kenya’s politics maybe questionable and may need further investigation at this time I see know no sign of evidence or indications that bears out these facts. Although it is my opinion that Obama has a gift of gab and can perform and entertain many in the Democratic Party this does not in my opinion quality him to be the Democrat nominee for President much less President of the United States. My stance on this is based on the reports and news coverage of Obama’s affiliations with the city of Chicago’s underground mobsters, the militaristic Weathermen group of thugs in and around Chicago, his Pastor for many years Jeremiah Wright who in my opinion is a propagandist of hate and bigotry against the United States of American as well as other groups of people here in America as well as else where around the world. Obama’s and wife’s attitude and statements concerning their patriotism to America and their commitment to the values and the American way of life is not the norm or of the character most Americans want in the First Lady much less the President of the United States. To tie Obama to the politics and subversive tactics in Kenya sounds much like the Republican misinformation and nonsense at its best. It is one thing to accuse one of wrong doing with out any factual evidence and not telling the rest of the story. Just because Obama’s father is a Muslim and lives in the country of Kenya who long ago abandoned Obama and his mother and returned to Kenya does not on its face lead one to believe that Obama is a Muslim or that he has political ties to Kenya other than he has a father and relatives living there. Obama has for the last 20 years or so attended a so-called Christian church in Chicago where his pastor in this church seems to spit out a lot of venom from the pulpit and over various media, which in my opinion is un-American and racial extreme radicalism among other such lunacies. However, while I would not vote or support Obama’s bid for the Presidency I will not accuse him of unsubstantiated charges that are put out by people of questionable Republicanism misinformation and invalid propaganda which does not seem creditable or trustworthy. To put it very simply Obama cannot beat McCain in the November general election.

I know you are good people and that Hillary is a good person, but the odds are good that she will not win and her own people admit that, just get ready for real change with Obama and back him with the passion you have for Hillary.


andersen May 17, 2008 4:03 pm (Pacific time)

Don't bank on it. The gap is closing in Oregon. The people are waking up to the smooth talker. Senator Clinton has our best interests at Heart. Read up: www.hillaryclinton.com. Then go vote for best qualified.


katharine May 17, 2008 12:18 pm (Pacific time)

I've already voted in Oregon, for Barack Obama. He is the person who will bring real grass roots change to our nation. Oregon will put him over the top, and again in November!


Henry Ruark May 17, 2008 11:23 am (Pacific time)

Jaime P. et al: Obama funding is on public record, as required by law. That of other candidates is also, but we know, too, that the "heavy dollars" for some come, some way, via other than the lawful "corporate campaign contributions" --and you can figure out who gets them, since it is always the party long in control. Bush II has been there eight years; most of trends started in Reagan era with Bush I, too. Connect the dots, and you get the most likely answer, as history shows in other eras when money-power was applied to seize-and-control our Congressional process. Wit, wisdom and WILL "of the people, by the people, FOR the people", using vote=power, was then and IS NOW the only possible answer we've ever had, except another Revolution which may be next-step if so demanded.


JAIME O PEREZ May 16, 2008 9:22 pm (Pacific time)

How nice of the royal family to spend time with the peons. Didnt we break away from England to escape the monarchy system?


Tim McFarland May 16, 2008 10:29 pm (Pacific time)

I am an Obama supporter; however, Hillary is right on with ending NCLB. We are putting kids through a lot, trying to get them to pass tests, just so our schools won't be penalized.


RJ May 16, 2008 9:52 pm (Pacific time)

I am wondering why Salem is receiving it's second visit from Bill Clinton and not Hilary herself?? What's up with that??


Matt Johnson May 16, 2008 9:32 pm (Pacific time)

I'm glad Hillary supporters have so much optimism, numerically it does not look good for her, but as my friends in the Middle East would say. Insha'Allah *It is as God willed.


matthew May 16, 2008 9:08 pm (Pacific time)
