Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, at the debate Thursday night to Senator Bernie Sanders....
"There is this attack that he is putting forth, which really comes down to: Anybody who ever took donations or speaking fees has to be bought. And I just reject that senator," Clinton said. "I really don't think these kind of attacks by insinuation are worthy of you. Enough is enough, if you've got something to say: Say it."
"You will not find that I ever changed a view or a vote because of any donation that I ever received," Clinton said. "So I think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks, and lets talk about the issues."
Hillary, the victim? Sounds odd, but it's true.
The so called "clean machine" Bernie Sanders, has not run a clean campaign as he would like everyone to believe. Hacking into Hillary's campaign donors list, falsely claiming endorsements which were not true, and aides running around claiming to be members of a union to gain access. And claiming that you can buy an election.
No one has ever bought my vote. The Koch brothers can donate ten billion dollars on advertising...my vote is my vote and it is not for sale.
Back to Hillary's charge? One of many exchanges during the last debate in New Hampshire, and to be fair, Sanders got in a few good licks himself.
But towards the end he looked beat. Mentally and physically. He looked addled and old. He left the stage long before Hillary and looked elderly compared to the energetic and youthful (for her age) Clinton, who was clearly in her sweet spot of a comfort zone.
They say politics is retail, and this last debate was worth every penny.
And I am now in full political mode....bring on more like this one!
God bless America.
