7:06 am
about our president i expect from republicans, i do not expect from someone running for the democratic nomination to succeed president obama. >> that is, madame secretary, a low blow. >> reporter: she, seizing on what he has said to casey hunt, on obama's record in dealing with congress. >> you don't think president obama successfully closed the gap? >> i don't. >> reporter: it was clinton's first chance since new hampshire to regain the trust of women voters. >> i've spent my entire adult life working towards making sure women are empowered to make their own choice, even if the choice is not to vote for me. >> reporter: sanders sees his candidacy as historic. >> somebody with my background, somebody with my views, i think a sanders victory would be a historical accomplishment, as well. >> reporter: they hammered each other on immigration, the economy, health care. >> i havegh

to make sure health care is a right for all people. we're not going to dismantle anything. >> the numbers don't add up. i believe i can get the money that i need by taxing the wealthy, by closing loopholes, things we're way overdo for doing, and i think once i'm in the white house, we will have enough political capital to be able to do that. >> secretary clinton, you're not in the white house yet. >> reporter: and foreign policy. >> journalists ask who you listen to on foreign policy. >> reporter: when asked if race relations would be better under his presidency -- >> absolutely. we are going to create millions of jobs for low-income kids. >> reporter: with clinton earning the endorsement of the congressional black caucus pack and a slam of sanders against john lewis. >> i never saw him. i was in the sit-ins, freedom ride, but i met hilry

7:09 am
sanders didn't do so sufficiently. >> that's the interesting thing. president obama is still extremely popular with african-american voters. more than 50% of the electorate in south carolina. all of the areas where bernie sanders would try to come after hillary clinton, so many of them, the criticism he levelled against her could also be applied to president obama. she pointed that out time and again. basically put him on the defensive. he had to say, this is why i'm criticizing hillary clinton but it's not meant as a criticism of president obama. it's tough to accomplish. >> who do you think did better in terms of attracting minority voters? >> i think what was more interesting on that front didn't happen on the stage. john lewis is an american icon, and it was one of the harsher criticisms of bernie sanders absenteeism on the movement i've heard so far. >> his response to a question. he didn't just say that. >> correct. >> we know hillary clinton has a problem with women voters.

7:11 am
voters as dumb. >> front page of the wall street journal has a story about how gushy her talks were. she's not going to get away with not releasing more information. >> when she was speaking in the paid speeches for the banks. >> she made hundreds of thousands of dollars speaking to the banks. this issue is not going away. he has a distinct advantage over here on the stage and the trail. >> she said president obama took some of the money from wall street and nobody said he didn't stand up to the banks. >> again, that comeback from sanders, why did they give the money then, that's easy to understand. >> thank you very much. the next republican debate is in south carolina tomorrow night. most of the candidates are already in the palmetto state. last night, donald trump took his message to louisiana. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is following the gop. good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. south carolina, of course, famous
