Clinton Says She'd Work With GOP: 'Compromise Is Not a Dirty Word'
During a special Fox News Democratic town hall in Detroit tonight, Hillary Clinton said she knows how to work with people who hold sharply different views, including partisan Republicans.
She cited her work in the 90's on a bill to expand health insurance to children with former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, as well as her work in the Senate and as Secretary of State.
"When I'm not running for something, the Republicans say really nice things about me," she said. "And I have like a whole archive of those comments, because I did work with them and I will work with them."
She continued: "I'll go anywhere to meet with anyone any time to find common ground. I will also stand my ground because I will disagree with some of the things they want to do."
Clinton said that the founders of the nation "created a system where they made clear no human being has all the answers."
"You have to work together. They had some really intense disagreements, but they kept working until they could come to some compromise."
Making her last point she said that "compromise is not a dirty word."
"It is the way democracy has to work and that is what I will do."
