Hillary sat down with John Dickerson on Friday for a segment that aired on Face the Nation this morning.

ICYMI:  The video is here >>>>

DSCN5705

Dickerson asked about her designation of Donald Trump as a “loose cannon,”  Hillary offered as examples his suggestions to: allow other nations to acquire nuclear weapons and  pull out of NATO. Some statements like going back to using torture, going after families of terrorists concern her.

She pointed to Republicans raising questions about their presumptive nominee.  She very carefully differentiated “their nominee” from “Donald Trump.” She said she doesn’t think it is personal but rooted in respect for the office.

Dickerson asked Hillary what hard questions she would ask Trump. Her general response was to point to a basic vacuum for what he says,

Americans don’t need a raise – based on what? Evidence indicates that he does not understand what is happening in the economy to ordinary people.  She pointed out that Trump does not have a plan,  He has a slogan.

Climate change a Chinese hoax -based on what?  Once again it is a slogan.

Punishing women who have abortions, rounding up immigrants for deportation – what do these statements mean and how would we go about that? She said maybe he doesn’t understand that running the gov not the same as making real estate deals.  Putting the credit of the U.S. at risk would have a horrible outcome.

DSCN5709

Hillary’s website explains all of her plans and how they are paid for so clearly there is a constituency for a candidate who puts specific plans out there, was  She has confidence in common sense of American voter

Hillary is not going to run an ugly race. She is going to run a race based on issues.  She doesn’t feel she is running against Donald Trump. She is running for the vision she has for America and to knock down the barriers that prevent Americans from getting ahead. She is going to stay focused on that,

DSCN5710

Hillary will run an outreach campaign to voters across the political spectrum who want a candidate is running based on issues, has put out plans and will explain them, who has a track record.  Hillary believes people who take their votes seriously will agree with her.

DSCN5711

Was she trying to lead Bernie Sanders to the exit?  She said her 2008 experience is a good reminder of how close she and Obama were then. She and Sanders have a lot of same goals. Will work together toward them and to make sure Donald Trump does not become president.  They shares many goals and she hopes they can work together.

DSCN5712

The emails came up again.  She is looking forward to having that wrapped up. So far no one has reached out to her.  She said it is a security inquiry, she has always taken security very seriously.

DSCN5713

Is there a broader lesson?  Hillary said if you don’t keep learning you will stagnate. Anyone who is running for POTUS should answer the same questions.  Hillary,  “I have 33 years of tax returns in the public domain.” and Donald Trump has none.  “What’s there?”

DSCN5715

She pointed to her record as secretary of state. Has a serous and focused approach to taking care of the nation’s business.

DSCN5716

 

Hillary said she will stand for American values, interests, and security and that Trump has no coherent foreign policy and makes statements that are of concern.  Why after 70 years trying to prevent proliferation would Trump be so cavalier in wanting other countries to get them?

DSCN5720

The interview ended a bit abruptly on that last note.  To Dickerson’s credit: some of the questions were refreshing and new, and some of the older issues were approached from a fresh perspective.  He did not ask her any wasteful questions that would be better answered by the party or parties who lodge those questions which she always has to answer with “Well I think you would have to ask him/her/them….”  It was one of the better recent interviews in that sense. Very efficient.

With Jake Tapper on CNN’s State of the Union, Hillary discussed, among other things, the water crisis in Flint, Michigan (where she is going today), the Sanders campaign allegations on banking influences, and the “shout out” from male pundits.

DSCN2818

  1. She is very well-informed on the subject of lead poisoning from both a medical and an infrastructure point of view.  She knows what needs to be done, medically, for the children exposed to the toxic water, and she also knows what needs to be done to the water lines. Do any other candidates from either party have the battery of information on this subject that Hillary has?DSCN2808 DSCN2809
  2. She explained, once again, how her financial plan is broader than Bernie Sanders’s plan as she also is going after giant corporations that gouge the public and evade taxes. She said she doesn’t understand why he doesn’t join her in this battle. DSCN2820
  3. As to the shouting, she said we all know that we are still dealing with a double standard and that sexism is not a thing of the past. By the way, anyone who listened to her at her Portsmouth event last night must admit that her normal tone at rallies is conversational not the full-volume blast that Bernie continually puts out.DSCN2822 DSCN2823 DSCN2824

 

Great quote: “Anger’s not a plan and venting’s not a strategy.”

On This Week with George Stephanopoulos, she voiced her appreciation of Bernie’s SNL stint. She also took on the extreme remarks of Marco Rubio on abortion in last night’s GOP debate. There, too,  she took on the spin about the bankruptcy bill – specifically with regard to the effect of the proposals on separated and divorced women and their children. She said she is not going to take the Sanders smears anymore, but largely, she was arguing against comments by Elizabeth Warren there.  As to the Goldman Sachs speeches, she said everyone who has given speeches to private organizations should then release their transcripts and the standard, if this is going to be the new standard, should apply to all.

She also discussed the Flint situation on Meet the Press.  (That repeats later on MSNBC.)  She was on Face the Nation as well.  That repeats later on CBSN.

If there is some way Hillary could have made this clearer, please clue me in.  Perhaps yesterday’s post was too dense and this message was lost in the forest for the trees.  So, to be crystal clear, if you are for Hillary cut out the anti-Bernie nonsense now and redirect.

DSCN1504

DICKERSON: Bernie Sanders has made quite a point of not attacking you. He said he’s not going to run any negative ads.

Would you pledge to do the same thing with respect to him, not attack him, and also tell your supporters, hey, lay off?

CLINTON: Look, I want this to be about ideas and about policies.

I know Bernie. I respect his enthusiastic and intense advocacy of his ideas. That’s what I want this campaign to be about. And I hope people who support me respect that, because this is a serious election. I obviously am running because I think it’s better for the country if a Democrat who has the kind of approaches and values that my husband had and Barack Obama has follows this presidency.

DICKERSON: So, can I mark that down as a yes?

CLINTON: Yes.

DICKERSON: You will pledge not to?

CLINTON: Well, I have no — no interest in doing that.

Covering topics from Benghazi to Syria, from The Donald to the Dems, and from health care to the economy,  Hillary Clinton sat down with John Dickerson for a Sunday morning in depth one-on-one.  She was detailed, authoritative, and unhesitating in response to a wide range of questions and thoroughly relaxed in her signature warm and personable way.

Hillary reminded the audience that when Benghazi was under attack other embassies also were being threatened, i.e. more than one mission (anywhere from 12-18) was under some form of assault.  Benghazi was one of these.

She also spoke of her efforts early to to prevent the crisis we see today for the Syrian people – efforts that have been outlined here many times before.

While she faulted Donald Trump in particular for fostering a toxic, biased atmosphere, and Republican candidates in general for attacking policies and programs from Planned Parenthood to Obamacare, she refused to make any statement about Democratic opponents declared or otherwise.  She made it crystal clear that the battle right now is between the major parties and not among Democrats.   She also made it clear that she considers Bernie Sanders to be under the latter umbrella. “I want this to be about ideas and about policies.” She stated that she has no interest in attacking Bernie. (I hope everyone on her side of the campaign heard that loud and clear.)

As for persistent declarations that her persona is inauthentic, she laughed it all off rather musically.  That is the real Hillary, folks!

Below is the full video.

Hillary Clinton: U.S. should take 65,000 Syrian refugees

Last Updated Sep 20, 2015 10:58 AM EDT

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Sunday that the United States should accept 65,000 refugees from Syria to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis created by the war there.

“We’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II and I think the United States has to do more,” the former secretary of state said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in.”

She said there should be a focus on admitting the most vulnerable, like persecuted religious minorities, or those who had been brutalized, like the Yazidi women.

Clinton also said, “I want the United States to lead the world,” and said the United Nations Secretary General should call for a meeting at the upcoming U.N. General Assembly meeting in which countries make specific commitments about to provide money and aid.

Hillary Clinton: I’m not preparing for Joe Biden

Hillary Clinton said she and her team are not taking steps to prepare for a possible late entry into the Democratic presidential primary by Vice President Joe Biden.

“This is such a personal decision and the vice president has to sort this out,” Clinton said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “He’s been so open in talking about how difficult this time is for him and his family and he’s obviously considering what he wants to do including whether he wants to run.”

“I just have the greatest respect and affection for him and I think everybody just ought to give him the space to decide what’s best for his family,” she added.
