Clinton up Next

Sen. Hillary Clinton is scheduled to hit the Philly stage at 1:30 today. Chris Brennan is already in the Mayor's Reception Room at City Hall where Clinton will deliver remarks about the fifth anniversary of the Iraq war. Chris reports that former Ambassador Joe Wilson and his wife Valerie Plame -- whose identity as a classified CIA agent was disclosed amid controversy several years ago -- are already in the crowd. Wilson called Clinton "one of the smartest people" he's ever met and said he's with her all the way. "I endorsed her early on. I'm delighted to have a chance to stand up with her, especially on the fifth anniversary of the Iraq war," he said. Wilson said the war needs a political solution in Iraq. "It takes presidential leadership. That is what is sorely lacking," he said.
