Sanders: Clinton Has Entire Establishment Behind Her; Hillary: I Can't Be Establishment Because I'm A Woman


Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton engage in a heated argument over their progressive bonafides and who represents the Democratic party establishment. Sanders, asked about his lack of endorsements and said Clinton's large number of party endorsements show she has nearly the entire establishment behind her.

"I will absolutely admit that Secretary Clinton has the support of far more Governors, Senators, Mayors, members of the House," Sanders said at Thursday's debate hosted by MSNBC. "She has the entire establishment or almost the entire establishment behind her. That's a fact. I don't deny it. I'm pretty proud that we have over a million people who have contributed to our campaign averaging 27 bucks a piece."

Clinton responded.

"I've got to just jump in here because, honestly, Senator Sanders is the only person who would characterize me a woman running to be the first woman president as exemplifying the establishment," Clinton said to applause.

"I've got to tell you that it's really quite amusing to me," Clinton said. "People support me because they know me. They know my life's work. They have worked with me and many have worked with Senator Sanders. At the end of the day they endorse me because they know I can get things done. I am not going to make promises I can't keep."
