Clinton Blasts Bush Administration's Behavior

Washington (AP) -- Speaking to a group of liberal activists who booed her last year, Hillary Rodham Clinton is accusing President Bush of disregarding the Constitution. And she's promising to bring a new progressive vision to the White House.

In a speech to the Take Back America Conference in Washington, Clinton described Bush's government as "everything our founders were afraid of, everything our Constitution was designed to prevent."

Last year, participants booed Clinton for opposing a set date for pulling US troops from Iraq. This time, she says she is working to de-authorize the war.

Clinton still drew some heckles, but also applause for promising to get out of Iraq and for embracing liberal positions on domestic issues such as health care, worker rights and stem cell research.
