Hillary Clinton on Financial Crisis: 'Everybody Should be Concerned'

Watch the exclusive interview with Sen. Clinton Tuesday on "GMA."

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Here in New York State, the financial crisis on Wall Street is a critical local issue in a different way than it matters nationally. Here, Wall Street is Main Street -- or, at least, one of them.

And Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's message on Monday: "Everybody should be concerned," she told reporters in Albany after a quick stop aboard GMA's "Whistle-Stop Express."

"Obviously here in New York we have the special concern of the thousands of jobs that are at risk," said Clinton, D-N.Y. "Now we're in the crisis, and we all have to be smart and focused on how we're going to get ourselves out of it."

"I'm very concerned about the impact on New York -- we're going to see a drop in revenues in government, for the city, for actually all the jurisdictions around New York City," she added. "The job loss is something I'm worried about. So we're just going to have to do the best we can to make up for what wasn't done, and frankly a real failure of leadership and oversight."

Clinton's exclusive interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer will air Tuesday on "Good Morning America."
