Clinton Visits Louisville, Makes Derby Pick

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton, entering the home
stretch of her own close political horse race, is hoping Girl Power
prevails in the Kentucky Derby as well.

During a visit Thursday to the Derby's hometown, the Democratic
presidential hopeful revealed her sentimental choice for Saturday's
Run for the Roses - the filly Eight Belles.

"I want everybody to place a little money on the filly,"
Clinton told cheering supporters at her campaign headquarters in
Kentucky's largest city.

Clinton is trying to become the nation's first woman president.
She said she wished she could attend the Derby, but noted that her
daughter, Chelsea, will be at Churchill Downs for the famed race.

Clinton took a short break from campaigning in Indiana to cross
the Ohio River into Kentucky, which holds its primary election on
May 20.

Clinton met with the editorial board at The Courier-Journal of
Louisville, then took time to thank her supporters and volunteers
at her campaign headquarters in the city.

    Maybe they can wager some of that money the pharmaceutical companies paid her off with.
