She said it again at a stop in Nevada yesterday. “I think we're slipping toward a recession,” Clinton said. “A couple of people that I met on the street, they work in construction. They tell me it's slowed down.”

In her pursuit for the Democratic nomination for President, Clinton has fought hard to elicit support from low-income voters. A Politico story previewed her “economic stimulus” plan recognized this with a headline that read: “Clinton econ plan aimed at struggling Dems.”

Former White House senior advisor Karl Rove attributed Clinton’s working class appeal to her narrow New Hampshire primary win. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed titled “Why Hillary Won,” Rove bluntly wrote: “Mrs. Clinton won the beer drinkers, Mr. Obama the white wine crowd. And there are more beer drinkers than wine swillers in the Democratic Party.”
