Hillary got the toughest question of the night, and she handled it like a pro.

When a Sanders-leaning voter at CNN’s Democratic town hall asked Clinton about charges that she is dishonest and double-dealing, Clinton launched into a short review of her long, committed political career.

“They throw all this stuff at me and I’m still standing,” Clinton said. “I’ve been on the front lines of change and progress since I was your age. I have been fighting to give kids and women and the people who are left out and left behind the chance to make the most of their own lives.” Clinton went on to reflect on her time rallying for expanded healthcare coverage as First Lady: “I’ve taken on the status quo again and again. I’ve had millions of dollars spent against me... The drug companies, the insurance companies spent millions against me.”

Clinton closed by adding that “if it were easy, hey, there wouldn’t be any contest. But it’s not easy... You have to have somebody who is a proven, proven fighter. Somebody who has taken them on and won.”

Here she was at her best because she wasn’t making any effort to present herself as especially millennial-friendly or fresh. She was presenting herself exactly as she is: a politician who’s spent a lot of time in the trenches, whose station and experience in the halls of power you either take or leave.

Paul Krugman on President Obama:

“He’s doing more to advance the progressive agenda than anyone since L.B.J.”

Idealism is nice, but it’s not a virtue without tough minded realism.

I feel for all those who had their heads buried and missed all this.

OMG! I love that man.. Mr President, Sir!

“ one thing everybody understands is that this job right here, you don’t have the luxury of just focusing on one thing,” a relaxed and reflective Obama told me in his most expansive discussion of the 2016 race to date.....

When I asked Obama if Clinton is facing “unfair scrutiny” this time around, his answer was a clipped “yes” – and he even admitted a tinge of regret that his own campaign had been so hard on her eight years ago.

But when I asked him if Sanders reminded him of himself in 2008, he quickly shot me down: “I don’t think that's true.”

Hell No, it's not true!

Thank you so much, sufrommich!

Marvelous! thank you, rivers!

Thank you for this>>>>>>


That is sooo the way to do it, Kath.. only a fool would not recognize all that

President Obama has accomplished all these years.. in spite of all the Obstruction!

On NO he Didn't!!! Bernie Sanders Talks Up Primary Challenge to Obama as ‘a Good Idea for Our

Democracy and for the Democratic Party’


And, now he's denying that shite you say?!

That time when Bernie pushed for a 2012 primary challenge to President Barack Obama


Did Hillary have a chance to call him out on his "denial"?

Gracias, lunamagica!

"She praised President Barack Obama and his legacy before nodding to the importance she sees the

state playing in her primary strategy as a barricade to stop Sanders' surging campaign."

Wow, this is so great, lunamagica.. Gracias!

I love Hillary for this.. These 8 years of President Obama are not going to be wasted.

Hillary Clinton just told South Carolina Dems they're her firewall. They loved that.

Clinton spent much of the speech embracing Obama's legacy, calling it a "great compliment" that Republicans often mention her name alongside Obamas, and slamming the Republicans who just two days earlier took the stage in town to rip him to shreds in their debate.
