Chili Dogs, Economic Policy on Clinton Breakfast Menu

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Nothing like starting your morning out with a bowl of chili -- and credit card talk. At 10:22 a.m., Sen. Hillary Clinton addressed a jam-packed, standing room only crowd at Skyline Chili, a popular spot in Cincinnati. (So popular, in fact, that it's got a Wikipedia entry.) Before even setting foot in the joint, Clinton's aides called and ordered the New York senator two Cheese Coney chili dogs. No onions, please. --Jose Antonio Vargas
