justice reform when she was first lady. >> you called out president clinton for defending secretary
clinton's use of the term super predator back in the '90s when she supported the crime bill. why did you call her out? >> it's a racist term and everybody knew it was a racist term. we recognized that we have a set of problems and that is why i have been promoting for my entire adult life, i think, the idea of investing early in kids. >> today clinton will be fund-raising in california while sanders is in rome for a vatican conference on social policy. a republican gala fund-raiser in new york last night drew protests.
