ALBUQUERQUE — Today is Super Tuesday, and Democrats in 23 states are going to the polls to help decide who will become the next president of the United States. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., tried Saturday night to convince some 3,000 people she’s the right person to lead the country. “I want you to hire me for the hardest job in the world,” Clinton said during her “Solutions for the American Economy” town hall at Highland High School. “And I want you to know what I will do for you.”The crowd was on their feet screaming and yelling and waving signs. A woman near the stage fainted and Clinton’s daughter Chelsea rushed to her aide, calling for water for the overheated woman.Clinton apologized for making the audience wait in the stuffy gym for more than an hour. Her plane experienced mechanical problems earlier in the day in California putting each stop farther behind, she said.Clinton energized her enthusiastic supporters when she went after the Bush administration and wealthy oil and health insurance company executives. She told the crowd Exxon-Mobil reported a $40 billion profit for the last quarter. The boos were deafening.“I don’t think they need your tax money to make that kind of profit anymore,” she said.
