Hillary Speaks at the New Hampshire Jefferson-Jackson Dinner
On Sunday, Hillary Clinton spoke at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner along with Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley. Her speech got the biggest and loudest response of the night and most of it will sound familiar to those who have been listening to her recent stump speeches. However, some of the longest applause came after this "unusual" but resonant line towards the end.
"I know it is unusual for a candidate for president, especially in these divisive times, to say we need more love and kindness...but that's exactly what we need in America right now."
It is indeed unusual to hear about "love and kindness" after the barrage of hateful, suspicious and warlike rhetoric from the Republican side, but it's just the sort of talk that we need a lot more of.
Watch the full speech above.
