Sanders: Hillary Clinton Cannot ‘Lead a Political Revolution’

‘But I think if Hillary Clinton is smart … she will understand that good public policy, taking on the big money interests and standing up for working families’

SANDERS: "Well, I don’t think Hillary Clinton can lead a political revolution. But I think if Hillary Clinton is smart, and she certainly is smart, she will understand that good public policy, taking on the big money interests and standing up for working families, standing up for the environment, standing up for clean water, is in fact good politics. Can she do that? Yes. Will she go as far as I would like her to go? No, she won’t. But I think millions of people want to understand and see is what kind of commitment she has to addressing the real crises in the country and transforming the Democratic Party away from a party which simply is there, in many respects, to raise money from the wealthy into a party which listens to the pain of a declining middle class and 47 million people living in poverty and shows the courage to tell the big money interests that this world is going to change."
