VIDEO: Clinton Ducks On Difference Between “Democrat” & “Socialist”
When asked directly by Chris Matthews on Hardball tonight, Secretary Clinton ducked rather than identify a difference between a Democrat and a socialist.
Perhaps it’s because self-described socialist Bernie Sanders continues to beat her in New Hampshire, and she’s worried about offending his supporters. Perhaps it’s because the Democratic Party has moved so far to the left in recent years that it’s indistinguishable from socialist political parties, and practically unidentifiable from the one once led by John F. Kennedy or even Bill Clinton.
Whatever the reason for Clinton’s non-answer, it’s just another in a long line of examples of her acting like a typical politician.
Notably, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was stumped by Matthews on the same exact question in an interview last year, making it abundantly clear that today’s leading Democrats are aware of the strong socialist sentiments coursing through the veins of their Party right now.
