right, my opinion to your opinion is met with insult. ill argue with you whenever but ill never be vulgar. this is the reason i dont like social media either, immature posts about jerking and toxicity. if youre not going to watch the town hall, and just talk about jerking, why did you post at all? just to talk about jerking?
take your vulgar jerk talk and post it somewhere like youtube where it belongs.
if this thread were a live room, you'd walk in the door yell JERKING then leave.
But what should unnerve her and the party is the visceral reaction inside the Bernie Sanders post-caucus rally as her late-night remarks aired inside the hall. When Clinton declared “I am a progressive,” the Sanders crowd chanted, “she’s a liar!”
The Iowa entrance poll indicates the angry sentiment is not limited to a few rabble-rousers. Approximately half of Sanders’ voters said Clinton doesn’t “share” their “values.” That animosity reveals a deep ideological divide that will become harder to bridge the longer the race goes on.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that it was a “low blow” for rival Bernie Sanders to say she is a progressive only “some days,” even as Sanders’ campaign defends the comment.
Speaking at an event in Derry, New Hampshire Wednesday morning, Clinton rattled off a list of progressive issues she’s worked on, from health care reform to fighting the privatization of Social Security. “If it’s about our records, hey, I’m gonna win by a landslide,” Clinton said.
The former secretary of state added that she was “disappointed” by Sanders’s comment, which he made the day earlier while campaigning in the Granite State. Asked by MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt if Clinton is a progressive, Sanders replied, “Some days, yeah…except when she announces that she is a proud moderate. And then I guess she’s not a progressive.”
Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton struggled Wednesday night to answer a question about why she took more than $600,000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs in one year.
“Well, I don’t know. That’s what they offered,” she said when asked about the fees by CNN host Anderson Cooper in a forum televised by the network with less than a week away from the Granite State’s first-in-the-nation primary. Clinton had a lucrative turn on the paid speaking circuit after she stepped down as secretary of state, which rival Bernie Sanders has used as fodder against her.
“I wasn’t committed to running. I didn’t know whether I would or not,” she added when asked why she took the money knowing it would look bad if she ran. She said she did not regret taking the money, noting that other former secretaries of states have given paid speeches and saying that no one can influence her.
