Sanders resolutely refuses to personally attack Hillary Clinton.

Bernie Sanders resolutely refuses to personally attack the Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton, even though he is constantly begged and prodded by a media addicted to Donald Trump’s brand of politicking.

On ABC’s “This Week” Sanders was asked if he thought his agreements with Clinton outweighed their disagreements.

“Well, that’s — well, the answer is yes and no,” he responded. “Yes, we do agree on a number of issues, and by the way, on her worst day, Hillary Clinton will be an infinitely better candidate and President than the Republican candidate on his best day.”

Then Sanders went on to show how to draw differences with one’s opponent without engaging in mudslinging.

“But having said that, we have very significant differences and the key difference is I see a nation in which we have a grotesque level of income and wealth inequality.”
