Sanders Says It Was 'Inappropriate' For Staffer To Joke About Clinton As Veep [View all]

I personally admire and respect Senator Sanders even if I am supporting Hillary Clinton. The comments from Sanders' campaign staff about Hillary being considered for VP were really dumb and I was disappointed. It seems that Senator Sanders is also very disappointed in these comments http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/bernie-sanders-staffer-inappropriate-clinton

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Thursday that it was "inappropriate" for his campaign manager to joke about considering his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton as his vice presidential running mate, MSNBC reported.

Earlier this week, Sanders' campaign manager had said that they were "willing to consider' Clinton as a running
“Look, she'd make a great vice president. We're willing to give her more credit than Obama did," Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver had said. "We're willing to consider her for vice president. We'll give her serious consideration. We'll even interview her.”

But Sanders walked back the comment to MSNBC.

“You know, I think that every campaign has statements come out which are inappropriate. That was inappropriate,” Sanders said, adding that he had "a lot of respect" for Clinton.

As I have repeatedly stated, I will support the Democratic nominee regardless of who wins the primary process. Senator Sanders is a good man and I respect him a great deal. These comments by Senator Sanders confirm my belief that Senator Sanders is a good man. I am still supporting Hillary Clinton but I am glad that Senator Sanders walked back the comments described above.
