Clinton desperately wants to play the victim [View all]

I was wrong about Bernie next strategy on the campaign trail. I thought he needed to come out and hit her much harder. It appears that is what the Clinton campaign was hoping for too. She was so aggressive in the debate, baiting him, and he never took the bait.

This is what the "artful smear" is all about. She wants the focus away from corruption, wall-street, other issues make this all about drama between her / sanders. She is hoping for hand to hand combat so she can turn around and play the victim card.

Thankfully Bernie is a lot smarter than all his supporters (including me) who was hoping for fireworks. Stay the course. Her hypocrisy on wall street and corruption in politics is there for all to see.
