Hillary Clinton in Grand Ledge: Bush presidency worst in U.S. history

Breaking News

Hillary Rodham Clinton campaigned in Michigan Saturday for one-time rival and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, telling voters they cannot afford to see another Republican in the White House.

"We cannot turn over our country with these deep deficits, with these serious economic problems, with the international challenges, to the same team that got us into this mess in the first place," Clinton told more than 1,000 people gathered at a park in this town 10 miles west of the state capital.

"There's no doubt in anyone's mind that Senator Obama understands the economic challenges we face as well as the need to change the way we do business here at home and around the world."

Clinton also planned to campaign for Obama in Grand Rapids and Flint later Saturday. All events are free.

She said the "day of reckoning" has come for voters. She called Republican George Bush's presidency the worst in U.S. history. She added that Republican John McCain is a friend she respects.
