ABC News’ Kate Snow and Eloise Harper Report: At an outdoor block party in Philadelphia Thursday night, Sen Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., criticized the Bush administration and said it was time to "clean house" with a new administration.

The wealthy and well-connected have had a president Clinton explained, "It is time for us to clean house, and one thing women know how to do – we know how to clean house."

Clinton said as the crowd cheered "I’ve put him notice, I may need you to come and help. There’s no telling what we will find."

Speaking from a historic spot in Philadelphia where John F. Kennedy and her husband former President Bill Clinton have both campaigned before, Clinton made veiled references to her Democratic rival Barack Obama, making no mention of the sparring from the prior evening, only asked the audience if they had watched.

Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, however, announced that Clinton was the clear victor. Rendell explained that after all of Clinton’s comebacks he and Philadelphia Mayor Nutter decided that it was acceptable for her to use the Rocky theme song.

"After the decisive knockout that she scored last night,” Rendell then said "Our own ‘Rocky’, someone who is going to make a great president. Somebody who is going to change the American lexicon,” because Clinton will be the first woman president, according to Rendell.
