Boy, that escalated quickly. Speaking at a Pennsylvania rally on Wednesday night, Bernie Sanders suggested that Hillary Clinton is not “qualified” to be president, the sharpest attack the Vermont senator has unleashed on his Democratic rival this year, and one that came hours after she refused to say whether she thought he was prepared for the job.
“She has been saying lately that she thinks that I am quote unquote not qualified to be president,” the Vermont senator told a 10,000-strong crowd at Temple University in Philadelphia. "I don't believe that she is qualified if she is, through her super PAC, taking tens of millions of dollars in special-interest funds.”
Sanders was just getting warmed up:
I don't think you are qualified if you have voted for the disastrous war in Iraq. I don't think you are qualified if you've supported virtually every disastrous trade agreement, which has cost us millions of decent paying jobs. I don't think you are qualified if you supported the Panama free trade agreement, something I very strongly opposed and which, as all of you know, has allowed corporations and wealthy people all over the world to avoid paying their taxes to their countries.
