Clinton: I Urged ’08 Supporters to Back Obama, ‘Didn’t Get That Respect’ from Sanders and His Supporters

Hillary said today she was “surprised” by the “increasingly personal” attacks on her from her primary opponent, before bringing up what she did for Barack Obama in 2008: “As soon as I lost, I turned around, I endorsed him, I worked hard for him, I was arguing with my supporters at the Denver convention in 2008 about why they had to quit complaining that I didn’t win and get out and support Barack Obama. And I didn’t get that respect from him [Sanders] and his supporters.”

Jedediah Bila brought up some of the issues raised in the DNC emails and how it might have created some “animosity.” Clinton again said that Sanders wasn’t a Democrat and doesn’t personally identify as one, saying, “I think the whole DNC issue was blown way out of proportion.”

    20% of Hillary voters voted for McCain in 2008. Only 12% of Bernie voters broke ranks this time around. The real problem was the group of Democrats who stayed home and didn't vote at all. Now that's a group we can work on to gain high numbers (without all of the internal bickering).
