Howie P.S.: I think someone was straining to come up with a headline.
SAN DIEGO, April 28 -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) appeared here without her husband this weekend, but she did bring one of his trademarks: a hoarse speaking voice.
Clinton said she was fighting a cold. But at a news conference after her speech to the California Democratic Party Convention on Saturday, she acknowledged that the front-loaded 2008 primary schedule is putting a strain on her candidacy.
Several weeks into the second fundraising quarter, Clinton also said that as president she would look into ways to enforce public financing of elections -- including, potentially, a constitutional amendment. Clinton was headed Saturday night to Silicon Valley, with stops in Reno and Los Angeles planned before her return trip to Washington.
