Hil, Sanders Clash on Progressive Cred

Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders battled Wednesday night over who had better progressive credentials during a town-hall meetup in Derry, New Hampshire. The former secretary of state defended her record after the Vermont senator mounted an attack on her connection to Wall Street. “I’m a progressive who gets results and I will be a progressive president who gets results,” she said. Sanders criticized Clinton for not being liberal enough on issues such as trade agreements, Wall Street regulation, climate change, and her backing of the war in Iraq. The two will face off again in New Hampshire on Feb. 9 in the second party-nominating contest after Clinton was declared the winner by a narrow margin in the Iowa caucuses.
