Hillary Clinton Stops Off in Queens

On her way to a campaign event in Forest Hills today, Hillary Clinton made a stop at the Jackson Diner in Flushing Queens with Rep, Joseph Crowley.  Taking a moment to speak with the press, she said she expects the upcoming debate (Thursday on CNN) to be lively,  Asked how she is managing to fend off the comments emanating from Bernie Sanders while attacking Republican agendas, she said, "I think I can both walk and chew gum at the same time."

The Sanders campaign, beginning with their leader, has taken a turn since arriving in New York, toward personal attacks on both President and Secretary Clinton that mimic the Republican talking points.  Hillary has stayed high above that level and remains involved with issues rather than character.

While the Sanders campaign has alleged that Hillary's success in gaining delegates is somehow (mysteriously) damaging to the Democratic party, in fact it is the Sanders strategy that is potentially dangerous to the party which should be unified on issues rather than occupied with questions of character.  Riling up an audience on a supposed interpretation of coded language and attacking an opponent  could not be further from Democratic primary style, but then how would Senator Sanders know?  He's never been a Democrat.
