Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) dodged questions Wednesday about GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
Clinton sponsored a press conference on a Government Accountability Office report about pay differentials for women. But she was swarmed with questions about the Palins effect on the presidential campaign.
Clinton said voters were more concerned with the top of the tickets and where those two candidates stood on the issues. She added that her role was to make the case for the Democratic presidential nominee, Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.). In doing so, she said she would explain the consequences of four more years of a Republican administration.
Im working hard to make the case for Sen. Obama because thats what I think the American people want to hear. ... [and] get the debate on the difference between the Republicans and the Democrats on the issues.
