Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared, “You should be willing to debate anytime, anywhere” while discussing her 2008 campaign for president with the Sioux Fall Argus Leader on May 23, 2008.
Clinton said, “[H]onestly, I mean, I just believe that this is the most important job in the world, it’s the toughest job in the world. You should be willing to campaign for every vote. You should be willing to debate anytime, anywhere. I think it’s an interesting juxtaposition, where we find ourselves. And, you know, I have been willing to do all of that, during the entire process, and people have been trying to push me out of this ever since Iowa.”
On Monday, Joel Benenson, the Chief Strategist of Hillary for America responded to calls for a debate between Clinton and her Democratic opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in Brooklyn by stating that Hillary’s campaign would only consider debates with Sanders if he had the right “tone” in his campaign.
