ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, while discussing the need for better quality childcare, talked about her experience as a young mother with parents at a childcare center in in Kentucky on Tuesday (May 10). The former secretary of state spent nearly nearly two hours discussing the wide-ranging impacts of inadequate childcare, touching on stress and school schedules. Clinton, a grandmother, acknowledged changes in parenting since she was a new mother. "I never swaddled our baby. I never swaddled Chelsea and now it's like, 'oh you've got swaddle the baby," Clinton said. "Learning how you swaddle a baby, that's an art form." Clinton has advocated for raising the wages of childcare providers in an effort to stop high rates of turnover for caretakers. She has also called for an increase in home visiting services that would offer child rearing guidance and tips for young parents. Her stop at the Family Care Center in Lexington was the first of two visits to childcare facilities on Tuesday afternoon. Kentucky holds it's Democratic primary next week (May 17). Clinton holds a commanding lead over rival Bernie Sanders in the pledged delegates needed to clinch her party's nomination ahead of the Nov. 8 election to succeed Democratic President Barack Obama.
