Hillary on Young Sanders Voters: Protesting Is ‘Exciting,’ A Lot of Young Voters ‘Really Like Me’


Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated that “it’s exciting to be, in effect, protesting” while commenting on the young voters who are supporting fellow Democratic candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Hilary said, “I think it’s exciting to be, in effect, protesting. I remember I did that a long time ago, when I was in my 20s, and I totally get the attraction of this. And all the research that I have seen about who is supporting Senator Sanders, a lot of the young people like both of us, they really like me, they admire what I’ve done, what I stand for, and they really, really like him. So, I’m not as worried as the numbers might show about how he has attracted so many young people, because I think that it is important to bring them into the process, and I give him a lot of credit for doing that. My argument basically is, look, we are electing a president, and a commander-in-chief. We are electing the Democratic Party standard-bearer, to go up against whoever the Republicans wind up nominating, and we really need to be sure that we elect someone who can walk into that Oval Office on January 20th, 2017, and start making decisions about people’s lives and livelihoods, and when folks look at that, I feel very confident, both in the nominating process, and in the general election.”
