EN ROUTE FROM LOS
ANGELES TO TUCSON, Feb. 2 -- Surprise, surprise. Hillary
Clinton is pulling for the New York team on Super Bowl Sunday -- and on
In regard to the contests, the senator said she was "expecting the New York team to win both." Clinton spoke to the press, squeezed into the aisle of the plane in

said Democrats would have a stronger argument in a debate with McCain
if they nominate a candidate whose goal is universal healthcare.
