Clinton Extolls Her Own Childhood With Mom, But Wants Today’s 3-Year-Olds in Child Care

Clinton said on Monday, after telling a crowd in New Hampshire how much she valued her own childhood at home with her mother.

“I just knew she was my mom,” Clinton said of the late Dorothy Rodham. “And she was great and she was fun and she taught me so much. And she made grilled cheese and tomato soup sandwiches. I mean, there was just a wonderful sense of being loved and taken care of, but also being inspired.”

Clinton also explained how terrible it was for her own mother to be abandoned by her parents.

But a few minutes later, Clinton said even children as young as three should be enrolled in some kind of pre-school or child-care program.
