When Hillary Clinton said "they were never going to let me be president," who was the "we"? The list is long, and Wednesday, the former Democratic nominee added another item: Socialists.
That is, the former secretary of state believes that it was her own love for capitalism that kept many hard-left Democrats from voting for her.
The moment occurred Wednesday at the Shared Values Leadership Summit, when the moderator, Allan Murray, noted Clinton is vocal about being a capitalist.
“You may be the only presidential candidate since World War II that actually had to stand up and say, 'I am a capitalist.' And you did. Did it hurt you?” he asked.
Clinton responded, "Probably. It's hard to know, but if you're in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists, or self-described socialists, and I'm asked, ‘Are you a capitalist?' And I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability,' you know, that probably gets lost in the ‘Oh my gosh, she's a capitalist.'"
