Clinton to 'hand everybody in America a shovel'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, told an audience of Communication Workers of America union members Tuesday that it's time America "gets back into the solutions business."
"Basically, I just want us to be Americans again," she said. "I want us to roll up our sleeves and get back into the solutions business. You know, solving the problems we face, not avoiding them, not denying them." (Watch video: Democratic candidates address CWA)
"When I'm sworn in as president and I inherit all these big holes that have been dug over the last eight years and all the problems that have piled up, I'm going to hand everybody in America a shovel and we're going to start digging our way out," she added.
