Perhaps you are unaware. Senator Clinton has proposed in her “Rural Agenda web site download” the following:

“Broadband for All - Hillary has proposed a national initiative to bring broadband
access to America's rural and underserved regions. She will ensure that we get
broadband to rural Americans who don't have access now. She will strengthen tax
incentives for extending broadband to underserved areas; support state and local
broadband initiatives, from new wireless technologies to high-speed fiber optics. She
will also get the rural utilities service to distribute the broadband funds more equitably and efficiently. Hillary will also create a new public private partnership, modeled on the successful Connect Kentucky program which has dramatically improved roadband access. The initiative has stimulated significant private investment and has increased the state's broadband coverage rate to over 90%.”

Broadband proposal, It’s on her web site.

Statement from Hillary Clinton on Investigating Oil Price Manipulation

I am heartened by the news that the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is investigating price manipulation in oil markets. However, with oil at record highs and gas at over $4.00 a gallon, we need more immediate, aggressive and comprehensive action to ensure that American consumers are not being ripped off at the pump.
For several months I have raised concerns that speculation and market manipulation were unfairly pushing up the price of oil. Even top CEOs at U.S. oil companies acknowledge that oil prices today cannot be explained by supply and demand alone.
That’s why, in addition to the CFTC investigation, I have called for a broad range of aggressive actions to address price manipulation and help bring down the cost of oil. We need to immediately close the "Enron Loophole," which allows some oil futures traders to avoid common sense regulations and engage in speculation. We must continue to urge the Federal Trade Commission to use its newly granted powers to vigorously investigate and pursue market manipulators who are pushing up the price of oil. And we should finally stand up to OPEC, by challenging their price-setting activities through the WTO and U.S. antitrust law. I will continue to fight for these measures in the coming weeks, and as President will work vigilantly to stamp out price manipulation and speculation and bring down the price of oil.

Statement from The Clinton Campaign on the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee Meeting

Harold Ickes and Tina Flournoy made the following statement this evening:
Today's results are a victory for the people of Florida who will have a voice in selecting our Party’s nominee and will see its delegates seated at our party’s convention. The decision by the Rules and Bylaws Committee honors the votes that were cast by the people of Florida and allocates the delegates accordingly.

We strongly object to the Committee's decision to undercut its own rules in seating Michigan’s delegates without reflecting the votes of the people of Michigan.

The Committee awarded to Senator Obama not only the delegates won by Uncommitted, but four of the delegates won by Senator Clinton. This decision violates the bedrock principles of our democracy and our Party.

We reserve the right to challenge this decision before the Credentials Committee and appeal for a fair allocation of Michigan’s delegates that actually reflect the votes as they were cast.

SIOUX FALLS, SD - In a clear display of momentum two days before the primary and on the heels of multiple visits by Hillary, Chelsea and President Clinton, the Clinton campaign in South Dakota today announced the endorsement of 17 county commissioners. These commissioners, who are endorsing Hillary because of her commitment to South Dakota, have been helping the campaign's efforts in their counties and spreading the word about why Hillary Clinton is best prepared to be President.

"As I travel to communities big and small in South Dakota, I have listened to the voices of so many who are ready for a President who will fight for them, return to fiscal responsibility, honor our veterans and invest in alternative energy production right here in South Dakota."

Louisiana Democratic Party Chair and Automatic Delegate Chris Whittington Endorses Hillary

Louisiana Democratic State Party Chair and automatic delegate Chris Whittington announced his support for Hillary Clinton today.
"Hillary Clinton has what it takes to turn around our economy and rebuild the middle class," Whittington said. "There is no question that she is the strongest Democrat to go toe-to-toe with John McCain in a general election. It is our responsibility as automatic delegates to choose the candidate we believe best fit to beat Senator McCain. That candidate is Senator Clinton."
Whittington was elected Chairman of the Louisiana Democratic Party in January 2006, after serving as the Party’s Legal Counsel, as a member of the Democratic State Central Committee and as a member of the Democratic Party Executive Committee.

[There are not enough pledged delegates at stake in Montana and South Dakota to put Obama over the top, but a rush of endorsements by the remaining undeclared "superdelegates" could allow him to claim victory when he takes the stage in Minnesota Tuesday evening.]
