CHUCK TODD, MEET THE PRESS: You got it. Let me just start with this. Your opponent is 74 years old, calls himself a socialist. Started this campaign with next to zero name recognition. You have 38 of 44 U.S. senators endorsing you, 12 of 18 Democratic governors. He has zero. What happened? What's gone wrong? And save me the, "We always knew this was going to be a close race," answer.
HILLARY CLINTON:Well, Chuck, look, I think it's actually good for the debate that we're having. That there is so much interest and energy that I feel on my side and I know obviously so does Senator Sanders on his. We've got a big choice to make. And it's exciting. I had a great couple of events yesterday. I am enthusiastically pursuing the opportunity to reach every single voter in Iowa.
And we're going to see what happens. I feel good about where we are. Obviously, we'll find out a week from tomorrow. But if you look at the differences between Senator Sanders and myself, I don't still think we can wait. We can't wait to make progress on the myriad of issues that I think we're going to be facing in the next administration. I want to build on the progress that President Obama has made. And he has a different approach. And that's what voters are trying to determine, which they prefer.
