Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union, ” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she understands one of voters “underlying questions” about her, which was if she was in it for us or is she in it for herself?
Clinton said, “I understand that voters have questions. I’m going to do my very best to answer those questions. I think there’s an underlying question that maybe is really in the back of people’s minds. And that is, you know, is she in it for us or is she in it for herself?”
She continued, “I think that’s, you know, a question that people are trying to sort through. And I’m going to demonstrate that I have always been the same person, fighting for the same values, fighting to make a real difference in people’s lives long before I was ever in elected office, even before my husband was in the presidency. So, I know that I have to, you know, make my case. I have to demonstrate what I have achieved. I have to really make clear that, look, we want a — we want to make progress in our country. We want to make a real difference in people’s lives. That’s what I have always been about. That’s what I would do as president. So, I’m very hopeful. And we will continue to work hard to make that case and to win over as many voters as possible to get the nomination. And then we will see who the Republicans nominate, and we will go from there.”
