At noon, at Robinson Farms in Lockport, NY (think Harrison Ford in "Witness"), she will focus on "Restoring the Promise of Main Street," in a speech that will look at the challenges facing rural and small town communities, especially how small town America can thrive without giving up small town Values, capital V.
This speech, like the three before it, will ask (and maybe even answer) big questions: How does America secure its economy in a more competitive world? How does the U.S. protect communities in a more dangerous world? How does the the country defend its values in a rapidly changing world?
The venue and topic weren't chosen haphazardly (Is anything Team Clinton does haphazard?). They are meant to connnect the 2000 campaign dot with the 2006 re-election dot -- and possibly the 2008 dot -- focusing on Clinton's own in Upstate/rural New York.

Jim Nussle's gubernatorial campaign plans to host "The Night of 99 Ideas" on Monday July 31 - 99 days prior to the election. Everyone participating in "The Night of 99 Ideas," will be able to join Jim Nussle and Bob Vander Plaats at 8:30 pm ET in a statewide conference call to share their very own ideas. The call also will be webcast live by The Stevens Company Advertising Agency at LINK and LINK. We wonder if there is enough bandwith to handle all those advisors to potential 2008 presidential candidates who will no doubt be listening to what's on the minds of Iowans.
