Clinton 'Sharpening Contrast' with Obama

By  | 

Westerville, Ohio (AP) Hillary Rodham Clinton is toughening the rhetoric ahead of what will be a crucial day in her bid for the democratic presidential nomination.

Clinton is sweeping across Ohio, telling supporters her campaign is “about solutions,” not feelings. She says she's the “only candidate” left with a plan for universal health care. And she is
focusing on her opposition to trade agreements that she says have drained thousands of jobs from the nation's industrial heartland.

The former first lady tells reporters traveling with her that she's “sharpening the contrast” with her rival Barack Obama, who's won the last 11 nominating contests.

Polls show tight races in Ohio and Texas, which vote tomorrow, along with Rhode Island and Vermont.
