WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday he will veto a major expansion of a children's health program despite the large margins it won this week in the House and Senate.

Pelosi, D-CA, said she told Bush in a morning phone call that she was praying he would change his mind. "I think I have to pray a little harder," she told reporters moments later, at a Capitol ceremony where Democrats celebrated passage of the proposed $35 billion increase in the State Children's Health Insurance Program.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that every child born in the United States should get a $5000 "baby bond" from the government to help pay for future costs of college or buying a home.

Clinton, her party's front-runner in the 2008 race, made the suggestion during a forum hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus.

"I like the idea of giving every baby born in America a $5000 account that will grow over time, so that when that young person turns 18 if they have finished high school they will be able to access it to go to college or maybe they will be able to make that downpayment on their first home," she said.

  1. I want my bond - with interest since 1945, it might just pay for the improvements I need on my yacht.
