Hillary Clinton

When I spend my time out on the campaign trail, it's usually about what I can do for somebody else.

And so for me it's always about what can I do for you? How can I help you?

Senator [Ben] Sanders and I share some very big progressive goals. I've been fighting for universal healthcare for many years, and we're now on the path to achieving it.

Hillary Clinton

I think I have this old-fashioned idea that when you are asking people to vote for you, it is kind of like a big job interview, and you oughta tell people what you think you can do for them. I think we can create more economic opportunity. I think we can improve education, make college affordable, deal with the myriad of issues that we confront.
