THE HEAT IS ON, at last, at last night’s Democratic debate:

“I think it’s time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent week,” Clinton said after Sanders talked about getting money out of politics.

Sanders has boasted about not receiving money from Wall street, and has pointed out in recent weeks that Clinton has received large sums in exchange for speaking.

“Sen. Sanders has said he wants to run a positive campaign. I’ve tried to keep my disagreements over issues, but time and time again, by innuendo and by insinuation there is this attack that he is putting forth,” Clinton said.

“Which really comes down to anyone who ever took donations or speaking fees from interest groups has to be bought, and I absolutely reject that Senator. I really don’t think those attacks by insinuation are worthy of you,” Clinton continued.

It doesn’t take much in the way of “art” or “innuendo” or “insinuation” to point out that Clinton bashes Wall Street while taking millions in donations and up to $675,000 a pop in speaking fees from too-big-to-fail firms like Goldman-Sachs.
