Iowa Jefferson-Jackson Dinner with Democratic Presidential Candidates Sanders, Clinton and O'Malley (10/24/2015)

According to CNN: (Des Moines, Iowa) Bernie Sanders ratcheted up his fire against Hillary Clinton on Saturday night here in Iowa, departing from his normal stump speech to draw repeated contrasts with the former secretary of state. Clinton delivered her standard stump speech at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner and chose instead to train her focus on Republicans, not her fellow Democrats. Sanders implied that Clinton took poll-tested positions based on political expediency as he used the milestone event in the Iowa Democratic caucus race to paint himself as a more authentic and faithful fighter for liberal values. He jabbed Clinton on her 2002 Senate vote to authorize the Iraq War and her recently declared opposition to a vast pan-Pacific trade pact she championed as secretary of state, drawing deafening cheers from thousands of his supporters. "I promise you tonight as your president, I will govern based on principle. not poll numbers," Sanders said, 100 days before the first-in-the-nation caucuses. "I pledge to you that every day I will fight for the public interest, not the corporate interests. I will not abandon any segment of American society -- whether you're gay or black or Latino or poor or working class -- just because it is politically expedient at a given time," he said.
