Senate Candidate Vows to Tackle the Impossible Dreams for NY
Hillary Rodham Clinton returned to Long Island after officially throwing her hat in the ring for Daniel Patrick Moynihan's United States Senate seat and spoke to a ballroom full of students and supporters at Adelphi University about her view of politics and why she has chosen to run. Clinton began by informing the crowd that she and Adelphi's current president Steve Isenberg attended law school together, and she joked that when she had heard her fellow alumnus was president of a university she had to come see for herself. She laughed, joking that his energy and "corny jokes" were still the same as she remembered from 30 years ago. She then reflected on her commencement speech from her college graduation ceremony and the quote she'd employed, "Politics is the art of making the impossible possible." This was the theme of her speech at Adelphi and she said the goal she has as a Senate candidate is to work to make what now seems impossible a reality for New Yorkers.
