Touching Her Bases

Hillary Rodham Clinton appeals to Jewish supporters by addressing core issues


First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton touched all the Jewish and pro-Israel bases and avoided treacherous curve balls during a Tuesday appearance before more than 2,100 delegates at Hadassah's 85th national convention in Washington. In a speech laced with nods to the Jewish community's core issues, including Jerusalem, terrorism and anti-Semitism at home and abroad, the all-but-announced candidate for the Senate from New York appealed to what political scientists say is her Jewish political base -- Upper West Side liberals, Westchester soccer moms and pro-Israel moderates.
