Positively 3rd Street
Those who say Senator Hillary Clinton will do anything to become President may have a point:
But Clinton has worked this area harder than Obama. Introducing her at a volunteer fire department here [in Merrillville, Indiana], U.S. Sen Evan Bayh ticked off the towns she has visited: Gary, Hammond, Whiting, East Chicago, Hobart, Valparaiso, Crown Point and Portage.
Obama, by contrast, has visited two: Gary last month and Munster this month. His wife Michelle was holding an election-eve rally in Gary Monday night.
"When I was in Hobart last week, meeting with the Parker family, they were talking about how distressed they are about how the price of both groceries and gas are going up at the same time," Clinton said.
I hear she's scheduled after-midnight rallies in Wheeler and Kouts.
I just hope to God she pronounced Hobart correctly. Maureen Dowd's waiting to pounce.
