Hillary Clinton: "Happy to Work with Sen. Sanders" on What "Will Be a Progressive Platform"

By Lysis

Clinton’s interview with CNN today reaffirmed her commitment to a progressive agenda and, for what I believe is the first time, also committed to working with Senator Sanders to shape the Democratic Party platform.

Politico reports:
Clinton, speaking in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday's "State of the Union," said she was open to working with her rival on a liberal platform. 
"I certainly look forward to working with Sen. Sanders in the lead up to the convention, in the leadup to the platform that will represent the Democratic Party," Clinton said. "It will be a progressive platform. I've run on a progressive agenda. I really welcome his ideas and his passion and commitment because the most important thing in November."
"There is no more important goal and I was pleased when Sen. Sanders said the other day he's going to work tirelessly to make sure that Donald Trump was not president and I really welcome that because that has to be our primary objective," Clinton said.
None of this is a surprise to Clinton supporters, but with the primary winding down, those who are uncommitted or support Sanders may be listening with fresh ears.

Good news for all of us!
