Hillary Clinton at AIPAC


Live blog highlights:

We need a Democrat in the White House. It is not just Israel which faces threats. America does too. Next president will inherit grave problems, difficult threats….Bush moved us in wrong direction. … McCain will continue same failed policies in Iraq and the Middle East.

America needs a new policy to make us stronger. We cannot stand strongly with Israel if we are not strong at home and not respected as leader of the world everywhere else.

America needs new beginning in foreign policy …

We have rare moment of opportunity and we must seize this moment. … Build world we want, rather than just defend from world we fear….

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
