Hillary Clinton: Bush presidency "most radical" in history

Breaking News

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Sunday labeled President Bush's tenure in the White House "the most radical presidency" in U.S. history, as she and four other Democratic presidential contenders courted the support of the nation's influential trial lawyers at a meeting in Chicago....

"We need to continue America's forward motion toward progress, toward that more perfect union," Clinton told a large, crowded convention room at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, addressing the political action committee of the American Association of Justice, formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.

"In the last six and a half years we have seen a dangerous experiment in extremism in the White House," she said. "President Bush campaigned as a compassionate conservative. It turns out he is neither. He has proven that time and time again. I would argue that his is the most radical presidency we have ever had. You can look at nearly any aspect of our life here at home, in the nation or around the world."
