Bernie Sanders Rejects Negative Campaigning, Says He Likes Hillary Clinton

During a Sunday interview on CNN, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) discussed the issues he will be championing during his 2016 presidential campaign. Significantly, the Vermont Senator also revealed that he plans to run a positive campaign, by praising rather than trashing his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. During the interview, Sanders stated:

[quote] "I’ve never run a negative political ad in my life…I believe in serious debates on serious issues. I’ve known Hillary Clinton for 25 years. Maybe I shouldn’t say this. I like Hillary Clinton. I respect Hillary Clinton.

Will the media, among others, allow us to have a civil debate on civil issues? Or is the only way you get media attention by ripping apart somebody else?" [/quote]

Bernie's making it crystal clear he wants to keep to issues and policies. Which the M$M no longer has any idea how to cover.

Go, Bernie!!

if anyone could benefit from a knock down drag out it would be Bernie. He's solid as a rock and not much dirt on him and as far I can tell no closets either.
it shows just how classy he really is. Good on Bernie

She is fast becoming the darling of the far left. The more she trashes Obama and Clinton, who progressives have never liked, the more she is earning their favor and their money.

She never talks about Republicans but can't go an hour without going after Obama and now Clinton.

I feel like we've already won, having the knowledge now that so many people share a common vision of a high quality, civil society.
