Hillary insists she is a progressive
04 February 2015, Nirapad News: Hillary Clinton has defended her progressive record after Democratic rival Bernie Sanders mounted an attack on her links to Wall Street.
‘I’m a progressive who gets results and I will be a progressive president who gets results,’ she said, reports the BBC.
The two Democratic contenders took questions from an audience in New Hampshire, which will pick its presidential nominees in a few days.
Iowa kicked off the state-by-state election earlier this week.
The former secretary of state, Clinton, was declared the winner in Iowa by a whisker after a prolonged count.
Sanders, a Vermont senator with a big lead in New Hampshire polls, listed issues upon which he thinks Clinton was not liberal enough – trade agreements, Wall Street regulation, climate change and her backing for the war in Iraq.
‘I do not know any progressive who has a super PAC and takes $15m from Wall Street,’ said Sanders.
