Clinton Returns to San Antonio

Feb 13, 2008 10:36pm

ABC News’ Kate Snow and Eloise Harper report: Hillary Clinton descended upon San Antonio Wednesday afternoon. She was mobbed by residents as she went door to door asking for votes. Clinton spoke with community members and even had the opportunity to kneel down and pet two dogs that we were being walked on the sidewalk.

One woman, when asked why she supports Clinton, said "Because she’s got more balls than anyone else I know," then said, "Wait, can I say that?"

Clinton lived in this town for three months when she worked on the McGovern campaign 36 years ago. Clinton, speaking at a rally, fondly remembered the food and the "mango ice cream." Clinton also told the crowd, comprised of many Hispanics, "You may have heard I eat a lot of hot peppers," and the crowd cheered.

Clinton, continued her sharper attacks against Sen. Barack Obama, saying "People live in hope, we have hope, what we need is help, and help is on the way." Clinton also spoke about the changes she wants for the next generation, saying "this does not happen by wishing for it."

"Change is going to happen anyway," Clinton also said, directly taking on Senator Obama’s message. "The question is whether we will have progress that makes a difference in people’s lives."

After the rally she greeted the thousands of cheering fans outside who had not been allowed in. Clinton stood on a large black raised box shouting into the microphone "Yes we will! Yes we will!"
