Hillary Clinton says she’s a ‘political outsider’ and a ‘real person’

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Sunday that being a woman makes her a political outsider, an obvious move to align with poll results that Americans are supporting the candidates viewed as outsiders.

“In politics this year, it looks like everyone wants an outsider. Now that puts you in a fix,” CBS host John Dickerson told Clinton during an interview on “Face the Nation”.

“I cannot imagine anyone would be more of an outsider than the first woman president,” Clinton said. “All of these mothers and fathers bring me the place mats with all the presidents, and they bring their daughters, and they say, my daughter has a question for you,” she said. “And then the daughter says, ‘how come there are no girls on this place mat?’ So, I think that is a pretty big, unconventional choice.”

When reminded by Dickerson that when it came to voters’ definition of an “outsider”, it means candidates with no records of holding public office, Clinton cast doubts on such candidates’ qualification as president.

“Do we want people who have never been elected to anything, who have no political experience, who have never made any hard choices in the public arena?” Clinton argued. “Voters are going to have to decide that.”

Clinton served as the First Lady, the New York senator and the Secretary of State over the past three decades and is facing a strong challenge from Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and rumors of Vice President Joe Biden getting into the race.

Clinton also brushed aside the notion that she isn’t authentic and doesn’t show her “real” self out on the campaign trail.

“I can’t possibly do that,” Clinton said when asked to name three adjectives that describe her. “Look, I am a real person. With all the pluses and minuses that go along with it.”
