Hillary: There’s An ‘Underlying Question’ If I’m In It For Me Or You [VIDEO]

Hillary Clinton said Sunday, “I think there’s an underlying question that maybe is really in the back of people’s minds, and that is, you know, is she in it for us or is she in it for herself.”

On CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, Clinton suggested that she was “going to demonstrate, that I’ve always been the same person fighting to make a difference in people’s lives, long before I was in elected office, before my husband was in the presidency.”

Tapper said, “And I know that you have blamed the whole trust issue with independent voters on decades of unfair attacks by Republicans, smears against you by Republicans. But how do you fix it going forward? If you do become the nominee, you’re going to need independent voters.” (RELATED: Watergate Reporter: ‘Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy’ Didn’t Put Hillary’s Server ‘In Her Damn Closet’)

“Absolutely,” Clinton said. “And I’m going to do what I’ve always done. I’m going to keep, you know, reaching out to voters. I understand that voters have questions. I’m going to do my very best to answer those questions.”

“I think there’s an underlying question that maybe is really in the back of people’s minds, and that is, you know, is she in it for us or is she in it for herself,” Clinton admitted. “I think that’s, you know, a question that people are trying to sort through.” (VIDEO: Hillary Refuses To Directly Say If She Has Ever Lied To The American People)

“And I’m going to demonstrate, that I’ve always been the same person fighting to make a difference in people’s lives, long before I was in elected office, before my husband was in the presidency,” Clinton claimed. “So I know that I have to, you know, make my case. I have to demonstrate what I’ve achieved. I have to really make clear that, look, we want a — we want to make progress in our country. We want to make a real difference in people’s lives. That’s what I’ve always been about. That’s what I would do as president. So I’m very hopeful and we’ll work hard to make that case and win over as many voters as possible to make the nomination and we’ll see who Republicans nominate and we’ll go from there.”(VIDEO: Hillary: Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Is Even Worse Now)
