Sen. Hillary Clinton and Gov. Eliot Spitzer received rousing welcomes when they addressed the RA Friday. Two of the state's top leaders made it a point to come to the convention to talk about the future of education in the state and nation. Clinton, a front-runner for the Democratic nomination for president, promised that education reform would be a major feature of her administration.
