Brief: Clinton at Yale today for 11th-hour visit

Less than 24 hours before the polls open on Super Tuesday, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton LAW ’73 will be returning to her alma mater for a roundtable discussion at the Yale Child Study Center at 9:30 a.m. today, the News has learned.

A Clinton campaign representative confirmed the details of the event, which will be closed to the public but open to the press.

The visit comes on the heels of a sudden burst of candidate interest in Connecticut, which has become a competitive state according to recent polls that show Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama neck-and-neck. Hours later, Obama will be holding a “Stand for Change” rally at the XL Center in Hartford with Sen. Ted Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of John F. Kennedy, at 5:30 p.m. Free buses will leave at 3 p.m. from Grove Street, between Church and Temple Streets., and will return at approximately 7:45 p.m.

But alas, the rival candidates will not cross paths: Clinton is scheduled to be in Massachusetts by 11:30 a.m.

In the 1970s, Clinton volunteered at the Yale Child Study Center as a 2-L at Yale Law School.
