Clinton sketches first 100 days, Obama vows to help workers

Go to AP original
WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined an aggressive 100-day presidential agenda on Tuesday and Sen. Barack Obama promised to "play offense for working Americans," both rivals observing something of a lull in an increasingly personal Democratic nomination struggle.

One week before the Pennsylvania primary, Clinton was jolted with a fresh reminder that party elders have no appetite for a campaign that drags into the convention in late August. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., said the candidate who trails in the delegate chase should quit by June 3. "Probably sooner," he told The Associated Press in an interview.

The former first lady currently trails Obama by 136 delegates in the AP count, and the odds are poor that she will be able to overtake Obama by the time the primaries end on the first Tuesday in June.
