She's done.

Clinton says "You're the bosses." She doesn't want to give a "big whoop-tee-do speech" but wants voters to think. This is a job interview. "It's the longest job interview in American history," she says, drawing laughter, "but it's an important one."

"It's important we have a president that understood to the core of HER being what it is that has made this country great..." Clinton says, drawing a huge cheer at the feminine pronoun.

She says that the U.S. $9 trillion debt, run up in large measure by the Bush tax cuts and Iraq, is a national security problem. "Every morning we wake up nad have to hope that bankers in Beijing and Seoul and Riyadh say, 'I think I'll buy some American debt today.' We are totally at their mercy," she says.

Clinton's lace-mill-working grandfather worked his way up to supervisor. He was proud, and put on a pair of clean dress pants every day to go to the Scranton mill. He only had a couple of pairs.

Clinton is at the Good Will Fire Co. No. 2, Station 52, speaking to a few hundred people in the parking lot. She praises the spirit of volunteerism.

"If people don't come out and participate in America, it doesn't work," she said. "That is how we have constructed this extraordinary democracy."
