    Hillary: 'No Woman Is Illegal'

    "We treat these problems as if one is guacamole and one is chips, when ... they both go together"

    Blacks versus women

    [On a campaign stop in Las Vegas], Hillary Clinton and her busload of traveling press moved ... to the popular local Mexican restaurant Lindo Michoacan, where a "roundtable" that was actually square passed a microphone around to tell her people's concerns about the mortgage crisis and foreclosures. She took notes and munched on tortilla chips.

    In broken English, one woman told Clinton how she wasn't making money as a broker anymore.

    "I have no income at all," she said. "So how will I survive?"

    Choking up with emotion, the woman said, "In my neighborhood, there are brand-new homes, but the value is nothing. I'm glad you are here so I can tell you, because you're going to be the president, I know."

    A man shouted through an opening in the wall that his wife was illegal.

    "No woman is illegal," Clinton said, to cheers.

    Summing it up at the end, Clinton said, "We've only talked to a few people, but each of them talk about some part of the problem we are confronting. This is a problem that is only going to get worse if we don't address it."

    Clinton said unscrupulous lending leads to bad mortgages, which lead to foreclosures, which lead to people with nowhere to go and vacant neighborhoods that can go rapidly downhill.

    "We treat these problems as if one is guacamole and one is chips, when ... they both go together," she said.

    In an interview, Clinton enthused about Nevada but didn't predict victory.

    "I never make predictions," she said. "But I'm very confident. We've got a great campaign here, we've got a lot of support across the state, and it just feels good. But of course the big question mark is, how many people are going to come out? And I keep urging people, get out and do this, for yourselves, your families, your future."
