SAN FRANCISCO The heavily Democratic San Francisco Bay area welcomed two of its political darlings Monday, with former President Clinton continuing his blockbuster book tour and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton headlining a campaign fund-raiser.
Joining other Democratic women senators at an event for Sen. Barbara Boxer, who's seeking re-election, Hillary Clinton told hundreds of party faithful to expect to lose some of the tax cuts passed under President Bush if Democrats take control in Washington next year.
"Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Sen. Clinton said. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."
Blocks away at San Francisco's historic Ferry Building, President Clinton promoted his best-selling "My Life," signing books for at least 3,000 people.
The Clintons followed largely separate schedules throughout the day, with Sen. Clinton heading south to Monterey for a public policy forum and her husband headlining a fund-raiser Monday evening for the American Himalayan Foundation.
On Tuesday, the former president and Arkansas governor will continue his book tour at several stops around the Bay Area and will be the star attraction at a fund-raiser for House Democrats.

These words are tattooed on Hillary's butt.
A red carpet is much less punishing on the knees than bare concrete.
SHE actually SAID that!!!???
Hillary's statement:("Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Sen. Clinton said. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." )
spoken like a true socialist
George C Scott as "The Flim Flam Man" couldn't have said it better.
That struck me to.
The other cheek says "Resistance is futile"
Just continuing in a long and (dis)honorable tradition.
Note to self: stay home for a few days. After accidentally finding myself driving in slo-mo thru SF yesterday, I don't now need to bump into Hill or Bill. One can only take so much.
PS: I'd be very interested in her charitable contributions for the past ten years. She may have even exceeded Gore's donation of used underwear (1999). Although anyone coming within several feet of used crusties will likely succomb within seconds -- but will be recorded as death by natural causes.
"The evening's events will proceed first with a VIP reception, presentation of the key to the city, champagne, strawberries, and hashish, followed by getting naked in a huge vat of Crisco."
AstroTurf is available in red?
KRON 4 carried a few minutes worth of the Clinton visits..
To see how local folks are just snakebitten (smitten?) by them is a wonder to behold.. almost ghoulish
I can't believe that she would be stupid enough to say that in public. Uncle Joe must be proud.
