'Presidential' visitor

Hillary Clinton
* Hillary Clinton coming to Terre Haute Thursday

-- Event scheduled for morning

Presidential candidates have been flooding the area recently.

During the weekend, Democrat Barack Obama spoke in Plainfield and on Thursday, his opponent Hillary Clinton has scheduled a pit stop in the Hoosier state.

In the Wabash Valley.

Clinton has scheduled a stop Thursday in Terre Haute, home city of state Sen. Evan Bayh (D), one of her biggest supporters.

Brazil Mayor Ann Bradshaw told The Brazil Times city officials attempted to get in touch with the Clinton campaign hoping to persuade her to visit Brazil.

"We made contact," Bradshaw said. "By the time we heard she was going to be here, we shipped out an e-mail. I got one back Monday.

"We've been back and forth trying to get her in Brazil, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen."

However, Bradshaw said she's pleased Clinton will be so close to Clay County Thursday.

"I'm real impressed with that," Bradshaw said.

Bradshaw added she did not attend Obama's speech Saturday in Plainfield.

Clinton's campaign has not announced where she will speak Thursday, but she is expected to discuss her plans for the economy while in Terre Haute. The event is scheduled to begin in the morning. Further details will be announced at a later date.

While in the state Thursday, Clinton also has scheduled pit stops for Anderson and Evansville on the "Solutions for America" Tour.

In addition, former President Bill Clinton paid visits to rallies in Fort Wayne, Richmond and Lawrenceburg Tuesday.


Former First Lady Hillary Clinton was born Oct. 26, 1947, in Chicago, to Dorothy Emma Howell and Hugh Ellsworth Rodham.

She attended Wellesley College in 1965, majoring in political science. She also attended Yale Law School, graduating in 1973.

Clinton was a member of the Richard Nixon impeachment inquiry staff in 1974.

She married Bill Clinton on Oct. 11, 1975 and the couple took up residence in Fayetteville, Ark. She served as First lady of Arkansas from 1979-81 and 1983-92, before becoming First Lady of the United States.

Following Bill Clinton's presidency, Clinton became a New York Senator. She is running on the Democratic ticket for President of the United States, along with Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.).

Somewhere Eugene Debs is smiling.
