Hillary Clinton Vows to Be a ‘Model’ of Behavior as President

Tuesday at a Claremont, NH town hall, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said when president she would be a model for kindness.

When asked about the “strong undercurrent of hatred in America with racism and homophobia,” Clinton replied, “I think we have to, as a nation, really ask ourselves some hard questions about how we truly feel about and treat each other. The level of vitriol and insult we see on the Internet is so distressing to me and it goes exactly after people in the categories you have outlined. As president, I would do my very best to model the kind of behavior that I would hope all our citizens would have. I’m not asking people to like everybody. I’m asking people to be respectful. I’m asking people to be kinder toward each other.”
