CHICAGO--- In a serene but tough response, White House hopeful Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), after being punched a few times by rivals Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) said simply, “I’m just taking it all in.”
Clinton—attacked more aggressively by rivals in the last weeks—said You know, I've noticed in the last few days that a lot of the other campaigns have been using my name a lot. But I'm here because I think we need to change America. And it's not to get in fights with Democrats. I want the Democrats to win. And I want a united Democratic Party..... that will stand against the Republicans.
And she recounted her experience in taking on incoming from the vast right wing conspiracy.
And I will say that, for 15 years, I have stood up against the right-wing machine. And I've come out stronger.
So if you want a winner who knows how to take them on, I'm your girl.
