Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeline Albright visited Southern Indiana Wednesday to campaign for Hillary Clinton.

Albright spoke mostly about foreign policy during her stop at Indiana University Southeast in New Albany.    She said she would not criticize Clinton’s rival, Barack Obama, but she did offer critiques of the current administration’s Middle East strategies.

“President Bush came up with the idea of a road map for the Middle East,” she said. “I think until last year that road map was not taken out of the glove compartment. So there is a lot of work to do on that score.”

Chelsea Clinton and Barack Obama have both visited IUS in recent weeks.  Hillary Clinton will be in Jeffersonville Thursday,  as will Obama’s wife, Michelle.     Indiana’s primary is Tuesday, May 6.
