Sen. Clinton calls House under GOP rule a 'plantation'

At a ceremony to honor Martin Luther King Jr., Sen. Hillary Clinton blasted President Bush and the Republican Party, saying GOP leaders are running the House like a "plantation."

"When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation, and you know what I'm talking about," Clinton said at the Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem, according to news reports.

Clinton said Republicans leave no room for dissenting views. "I predict to you that this administration will go down in history as one of the worst that has ever governed our country," she said.
