HRC: A lot of work for Democrats

From NBC's Lauren Appelbaum
On the Hill today, Hillary Clinton responded to statements that her husband is not enthusiastic about campaigning for Obama, telling reporters Bill "has said he will do whatever he can and whatever he's asked."
 
"I am going to be campaigning on Friday, and my husband is in Europe right now," the New York senator explained after meeting with the House Democratic Caucus. "He is attending President Mandela's 90th birthday party today in London. And there will be a lot of work for all of us as Democrats to do, including him."
 
Clinton also said she is "excited about getting back to work here in the Congress" and working with Obama to take back control of the White House. "This election is a make-or-break election, and I am 100% committed to do everything I possibly can to make sure that Sen. Obama is sworn in as the next president of the United States next January here in this Capitol, that we add to our numbers in the House and especially in the Senate, because the American people are yearning for results, for solutions."
 
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), appearing with Clinton, commended Clinton on her run. "Because of her campaign, the Democratic Party is much more energized, is much more prepared to win in November," Pelosi said, "and more important than that, much better prepared to govern come January."
