Clinton Makes Last-Ditch Appeal for Jewish Votes

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton paid a surprise visit to a Jewish federation-sponsored Philadelphia Orchestra concert celebrating Israel's 60th birthday. She made no political comments, but her appearance was part of a last-ditch effort to garner more votes in Tuesday's state primaries.

The ballot is a make-or-break vote for the wife of former President Bill Clinton. Sen. Barack Obama has staged a commanding lead in other state primaries, and Sen. Clinton's camp needs a decisive victory to stay in the running.
