This is how a campaign should be run. It’s OK to challenge opponents but Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) isn’t going to sling mud at Hillary Clinton.
An ABC’s ‘This Week’ Sanders was asked if his agreements with Clinton outweighed his disagreements.
Courtesy of ABC:
SANDERS: Well, there’s — that’s — well, the answer is yes and no. Yes, we do agree on a number of issues. And, by the way, on her worst day, Hillary Clinton will be an infinitely better candidate and president than the Republican candidate on his best day.
But having said that, we have very significant differences. And the key difference is I see a nation in which we have a grotesque level of income and wealth inequality. Almost all of the new income and wealth is going to the top 1 percent.
I see a political system which is corrupt, where super PACs are able to receive huge amounts of money from millionaires and billionaires.
I think if you look at my history and what I am saying in this campaign, we need a political revolution. We need to stand up to the top 1 percent. We need to transform American politics and the way we do economics.
But, by the way, George, if I may, we need to have a media more interested in the issues facing working class people and the middle class rather than political gossip.
So do I agree with Hillary Clinton on this or that issue?
Of course I do. But I think on issues, for example, like Wall Street, you know, I believe that these guys who drove our economy into the ground, destroyed so many lives, I think at the end of the day, what we have to do is re— reestablish Glass-Steagall. We have to break up these huge financial institutions. That is not Hillary Clinton’s position at all.
You know, I was there on the TPP from way back. That was — Hillary Clinton took a little while to get there.
Watch, uploaded by Crooks and Liars:
The Democratic debates showed candidates facing off with each other on an intellectual level. The GOP debates, showed candidates slinging mud and trying to get the last word in, no matter how false it was. It was embarrassing.
Bernie and Hillary have class. The end.
