Senator Clinton pledges to help veterans

Clinton pledges support to veteransDecember 27, 2007 MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton is renewing her pledge to ensure the United States fulfills its obligations to veterans. At the Iowa Veterans Home in central Iowa, Clinton said she was glad to be there during the holidays. The New York senator said she believes that veterans should receive "the health care, the compensation and the support" they so richly deserve. Clinton was introduced by Iowa Congressman Leonard Boswell, a helicopter pilot in the Vietnam War, who has endorsed her. Instead of attacking her Democratic rivals, Clinton targeted the Bush administration, which she said has slashed veterans' benefits. She added that she wants to help make up for those mistakes, and says she's already been trying to assist veterans.
