Clinton a fan of hot peppers

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (CNN) - Some people prefer coffee. Others, Red Bull.

Hillary Clinton, apparently, runs on hot peppers.

"I eat a lot of hot peppers," Clinton told a crowd in San Antonio. "They keep me healthy. They keep me going. And they remind me of South Texas."

Clinton was reminiscing about her time spent working for the DNC in the 1970s, when she signed up to register Hispanic voters in Texas.

"I lived in San Antonio for three months," she said. "I lived in San Antonio for three months. It's where I became addicted to Mexican food and mango ice cream."

    We're with you Hillary.... You can make it to the white house... You are destined to be the next President. Mr. Obama is destined also, but not this time, he lacks experience, the world needs america. If America fumbles, the whole world fumbles too...

    So that's why she has such a sour expression all the time. And there I was thinking that it was because she knew she was losing.

    i'm sure when she goes to Ohio to campaign, she's going to go on Wikipedia, figure out something that they like there, and say she likes it too. pretty sad/transparent.
