Hillary Clinton showed her fire in an energetic New Hampshire concession speech where she vowed to take the fight for the Democratic nomination national, and fight for every vote.
Former Sec. of State Clinton said, “Now we take this campaign to the entire country. We’re going to fight for every vote in every state. We’re going to fight for real solutions, and make a real difference in people’s lives.”
Clinton said that people are hungry for change, but they are also hungry for solutions. Clinton promised to work hard to make lives better. She linked herself to Sanders and said that she also wants to get rid of Citizens United. She reminded the country that Citizens United was a case about her campaign and vowed that there will not be a more aggressive fighter for campaign finance reform than her.
Former Sec. Clinton said that the real difference in the race is on job growth.
Clinton was off to a great start in the speech, until she rattled off another list of policy proposals. Former Sec. Clinton made appeals to African-American voters, Hispanic voters, and female voters. She said that barriers need to broken down, so that ladders of opportunity can be built for everyone.
Former Sec. Clinton positioned herself as a fighter against injustice and for rights for all. She admitted that she has work to do with young people, and said that she supports them, even if they don’t support her.
The speech was Hillary Clinton’s first step in broadening the Democratic primary electorate by taking the campaign national. The real test for Sen. Sanders is coming up. Iowa and New Hampshire fit the Sanders demographic perfectly, but now Sanders must broaden his appeal to African-Americans and Hispanics.
Former Sec. Clinton did not sound defeated. It was a speech by a candidate who is digging in for a long fight. Clinton will was fired up, and she looks ready for a national campaign.
