"Hillary has already made plain publically, she feels...the current executive branch needs to reach out to the Republicans more than it has been. That's a direct assault on Obama!" remarked Klein. "She feels that Obamacare is a flawed law that needs to be changed. She's talking about taking a much more engaged role overseas than Obama has been willing to do. She thinks the border in the south should be secure, which Obama has refused to do and we can go on and on..."
