Hillary Clinton sat down for an interview with Jake Tapper yesterday that aired on State of the Union this morning. The questions that came up and her responses appear in the banners beneath the photos.
is probably most striking about the past several days is how Hillary is
being closely associated with the legacy of the Clinton
Administration. She revisited both her words from back then and her
husband's legacy by asserting that you do not simply put a policy into
practice, turn your back, and walk away. You go back and assess the
effects over time and make changes as necessary.
She pointed out that Senator Sanders regularly faults both the Clinton
and the Obama Administrations without ever calling out the George W.
her $12 federal minimum wage floor by way of local economies. As a
person who was once responsible for payrolls in five different states, I
can attest that a single salary base for the same job across the nation

she [Hillary] would make." Dems fightin' words, Mr. Senator! He told George Stephanopulos on This Week
a little later that he will take the fight to the convention because he
brings in many more Independents. Great! Not sure Democrats will go
for that argument.
On another note, Bernie keeps accusing the Clinton campaign of
politicizing the Sandy Hook massacre. Just to be clear on that, it was
the families who prevailed upon him for an apology, not Hillary's
campaign. When he held his line, family member, as voting citizens,
their support to Hillary whose agenda more closely exemplifies theirs.
Just saying. See this.
And the beat goes on.
