A jubilant Hillary Clinton took to the stage in Miami, Florida on Tuesday night after winning primaries in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Clinton took more states and delegates than her competitor Bernie Sanders and in some ways also took Sanders' speech.
Clinton, who started her campaign describing herself as a moderate before shifting left to counter Sanders, came out swinging at corporations and "the one percent."
"This country belongs to all of us, not just those at the top," Clinton said. "Not just the people that look one way, worship one way or even think one way."
In a moment clearly aimed at Donald Trump, Clinton said America remained a great country: "That work is not to make America great again. America never stopped being great." But Clinton said too many were falling through the cracks and more needed to be done, perhaps forgetting that she was running to replace a far-left president that has held office for the last seven years.
Despite the Democratic race being a showdown between a socialist and a former secretary of state that lied to the American people about a terrorist attack and the deaths of four Americans, Clinton claimed the real problem in this campaign was on the Republican side: "The stakes in this election have never been higher and the rhetoric on the other side has never been lower," Clinton said.
After saying that Americans have to work together and the country does not need divisions of "us and them," Clinton launched an assault at the wealthy in America - or in other words, herself and her friends. Clinton, who has taken staggeringly high six-figure payments for giving speeches to some of the biggest firms on Wall Street, claimed that she would get tough on corporate America to make sure they did their part.
