First Hillarycare, now Hillary-preK

And, her new idea is just as bad as Hillarycare. Universal Pre-K.

"Every child - not just children whose parents can afford it - should have the same chance to succeed and to fulfill his or her God-given potential," Clinton said. "As President, I will establish universal pre-kindergarten education through a federal-state partnership, based on state flexibility, that ensures every four-year-old child in America has access to a high-quality pre-kindergarten program."

Every child DOES have the same chance to succeed as a pre-schooler, and they don't need to be enrolled in a state-run, taxpayer funded program. How hard is it for parents to read to their children? To teach rudimentary numbers and the ABC song?

And, what's with all this "God-given" stuff? Doesn't Hillary know for six years we've been criticizing Bush for using the "G" word too much?
