Hillary Clinton Visits Seattle Thursday Night

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Hillary Clinton, campaigning in Seattle in advance of Saturday's caucuses, says she wants a "richer, safer, stronger America."      

The Democratic Presidential contender stressed climate change and health care in a 42-minute stemwinder address to 5,000 cheering supporters thursday night in a cruise ship terminal on the Seattle waterfront.

Hundreds were turned away when the hall reached capacity.      

Clinton has accused her competitor Barack Obama of abandoning the goal of universal health care.

She says health care for all will be her passion if she's elected president.      

Clinton is appealing to liberal Seattle's environmental voters, saying she's the best candidate to combat global warming and to create thousands of so-called "green" jobs developing alternative forms of fuel and energy.      

She says Washington already is a leader in the "green revolution."
