Hillary tells Kentucky Dems Bush mismanaged the war in Iraq - Now there's a non-controversial statement we can all get behind!
From a distance, Republicans seemed as gleeful about Clinton's visit, and were eager to lump Kentucky Democrats in with the New York senator.

As first lady, Clinton sometimes evoked strong emotions in the Bluegrass State. In 1994, a gathering of tobacco supporters in western Kentucky burned an effigy of Clinton to protest what they saw as anti-tobacco policies during her husband's administration. Her husband still carried the state in both his presidential victories.

"Our Kentucky voters simply can't identify with a liberal New York senator," said state Republican Chairman Darrell Brock. "She's for bigger government, higher taxes, more regulation _ just the things that we just don't stand for."
