Sen. Clinton Presses for Invite to Bush Ranch

From Times Wire Reports

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said she wants to visit the vacationing President Bush near Crawford, Texas, to lobby for World Trade Center aid. The New York Democrat wants to bring along firefighters, ironworkers and others from ground zero to help make the case for additional funds for a health tracking system and better radios for emergency workers.

White House aides made it plain that Bush is unlikely to accept. The president has signed a $28.9-billion emergency spending bill.
