Hillary: “This One’s Personal”

Hillary Clinton won the New York primary Tuesday night, making it her first big 2016 election win in weeks as Bernie Sanders has monopolized all the momentum.

“New Yorkers, you’ve always had my back, and I’ve always tried to have yours,” she told supporters in New York City.

This victory, she said, was “personal” – a statement which could hold two meanings. Clinton was a senator for New York and therefore this was a sort of homecoming. Yet, her use of the word “personal” could also refer to her hostile relationship with Sanders as of late. Sanders has questioned Clinton’s qualifications and her judgment in recent weeks, particularly criticizing her for her vote on the Iraq War and her corporate ties. Certainly, a win tonight in New York was one way to silence his camp.

Despite the nasty exchanges between her and Sanders, Clinton addressed his supporters directly on Tuesday, telling them, “There is much more that unites us then divides us.”

Clinton tried to prove it by pointing out her desire to guarantee equal pay for women, usher in immigration reform, and fix America's infrastructure.

“This could be one of the most consequential elections of our lifetime,” she said, before warning voters what her Republican opponents are planning for the country.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are pushing policies that are “dangerous” to Americans, she urged, specifically noting their proposals to ban Muslims or surveil Muslim neighborhoods.

Has Clinton effectively silenced Sanders?
