Hillary Clinton: Why Are All of These Republicans Talking About Me?

Posted: Apr 21, 2015 8:30 AM

Sole Democratic candidate for President Hillary Clinton just doesn't understand why "all of these Republicans" are talking about her. 

In her first real interview with the press since announcing her presidential campaign more than a week ago, the former Secretary of State isn't answering questions about allegations she traded political favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation, but is instead complaining about all of those Republican presidential candidates talking about her.

"Your reaction please to these book allegations. Did foreign entities receive any special treatment for making any kind of donations to the Clinton Foundation or your husband," ABC News correspondent Celia Vega asked Clinton during an event in New Hampshire yesterday.

"We're back into the political season and therefore we will be subjected to all kinds of distractions and attacks and I'm ready for that. I know that that comes unfortunately with the territory" Clinton responded without answering the question. "The Republicans seem to be talking only about me. I don’t know what they’d talk about if I wasn’t in the race. But I am in the race and hopefully we’ll get on to the issues and I look forward to that."

Considering Clinton is the only Democrat who is seriously running for president, I'm not sure what she expected. Regardless, her dodge on the direct question was certainly predictable. 

Americans also look forward to "getting onto the issues" as Clinton suggested, which includes explanations about her time at the State Department.
