Hillary Clinton Shines at the Univision Democratic Debate in Miami

Hillary took the debate stage tonight with confidence and a bright smile the night after a resounding victory in Mississippi and a narrow defeat in Michigan.  Watching these debates you sometimes have to remind yourself that she is not president ... yet.

The tweets below came from Hillary's account and also from some of her  staffers.  They reflect both responses to questions and reactions to answers.

Hillary: "It’s not easy to do what I think is right, to help people, to even the odds, to hear a story like the woman’s story we just heard. And to know that I can make a difference and I want to in every way possible.

I am not a natural politician, in case you haven’t noticed, like my husband or President Obama. So I have a view that I just have to do the best I can, get the results I can, make a difference in people’s lives, and hope that people see that I’m fighting for them and that I can improve conditions economically and other ways that will benefit them and their families."

Hillary: "I believe in universal health care. I fought for it 25 years ago."

It is clear from some of the tweets that revolution is not necessarily a popular idea in south Florida.  Seems Senator Sanders was hoist with his own petard. Interesting that after months of promising a popular mobilization that will tear down everything President Obama has done, Sanders becomes Defender-in-Chief of Obama.  And Hillary is copying him?
