Here’s what she might have said.
“Well, Anderson, there are plenty of folks who might think of me as their enemy: the NRA, the health insurance and drug companies, Iran and probably the Republicans. But you know what? Thinking of people we disagree with as ‘enemies’ is one of the things that’s wrong with Washington today. I’ve disagreed with those interest groups plenty, and I certainly will continue to disagree with the Republican Party on pretty much every issue. But they’re not my enemy. They’re Americans, with a different philosophy, and when I’m president I’m going to do my best to work with them and get things done.”
I think that would have been good for the country, and smart politics too.
