Sen Hillary Clinton (D-NY) wants all 4-year-olds in pre-kindergarten classes.
She says she can pay for the $10 billion plan by closing tax loopholes and killing Bush administration programs she dislikes.
Her campaign says state efforts to do the same thing only reach about one-in-five kids. Her federal play would distribute money through state governors who'd have to decide where to best spend it. (Santa Cruz Sentinel)
