In South Carolina, Clinton hails Confederate flag's removal
WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. - Hillary Rodham Clinton has praised South Carolina leaders for removing the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds.

During a stop Thursday in West Columbia, South Carolina, Clinton talked about what she said was a lack of educational and economic opportunities, and a criminal justice system that treats blacks more harshly than whites.
