Hillary probably will be the Democratic nominee but you’ve got to love the backhanded swipe she’s taking at Bernie Sanders by saying this, especially after his recent wins.
The Hill reports:
Clinton: I hope Sanders joins ranks when I’m nominee
Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said she hopes rival Bernie Sanders will join ranks when she gets the party’s nomination, despite repeated refusals from the Vermont senator to talk about backing her.
“I believe that I will be the Democratic nominee,” Clinton said in an interview on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” Wednesday night, according to a transcript of the interview. “I certainly hope that Sen. Sanders and his supports will join ranks, the way that I did – with President Obama.”
She said she “worked her heart out” to get Obama elected after she ended her own presidential bid in 2008 because “that’s what I think you do when a primary is over.”
“Now, I hope that if I am fortunate enough to secure the nomination that we will come together as a party,” she said.
This is the sort of report that drives Bernie supporters insane.
Of course, there’s always the possibility that Hillary will be held responsible for her actions but let’s face it, that’s probably not going to happen.
