AUSTIN - Sounding more presidential aspirant than book-selling author, former secretary of state and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday excoriated the current partisan divide in U.S. politics that she insisted is crippling America's can-do spirit for the future.
"Our political system has to be fixed so we start working together again," she said at a packed performance hall speech that was repeatedly interrupted by cheers in Texas' Democrat-friendly capital city.
"We have to start acting like Americans. We're all on the same team."
During a 45-minute speech, Clinton criticized current politicians who she said underscore the fact they're right, in part "because they have a channel to the Divine" - an apparent reference to evangelical Republicans who are driving much of the criticism of Democrats such as herself.
A 'simple' vision
While she remained coy about her intentions to seek the Democratic nomination for president in two years, Clinton was asked what agenda she would recommend for the next president.
She then gave her vision for the job.
"I have a very simple vision: restore the American dream for the American people," she said to cheers and applause. "Restore our trust in people."...........

She doesn't trust "the people," she and her followers must continually lie and work to divide the people and the country.
This can't be described better than how David Horowitz did 14 years ago (it's SPOT ON still) in 2000 in his excellent piece: Hillary Clinton and "The Third Way" How America's First Lady of the Left Has Bamboozled Liberals and Conservatives Alike
Working together...means agreeing with the left.
Resistance to Them (and transforming America) is at the root of the country’s problems - don’tcha know......
I’m not on that team...
She kept her mouth shut when Dems were calling Conservatives terrorists, arsonists. Just more empty rhetoric from a dem.
That's exactly what it means. I don't want to work together, because of that. I do not want to be the loyal opposition. I just want to be the never stop fighting, never give them an even break, never surrender, down and dirty, in the trenches, in their face opposition. Illegitimi non carborundum. I do not want to be friendly with any of them. I would rather be their enemies. I have no love or respect for any of them. They have done their level best to destroy America. Screw them.
“We have to start acting like Americans. We’re all on the same team.”
we are not ....and THEY are the Alinsky/ Cloward-Piven driven deviants who have completely erred from what AMERICANS are or should be .
Sleazy , deceitful ,self serving lawyer : H. Clinton
” Screw them “
I 2nd the motion
Says the woman without being elected to anything somehow managed to access the FBI files of 900 potential political enemies.
Says the woman who put herself in charge of Clinton's war room.
Says the woman who masterminded the campaign to disparage Bill Clinton's victims as "sluts and nuts" to the entire world.
Says the woman who is a demonstrated serial liar.
Says the woman who behaved unethically as an attorney of a Senate Committee motivated by rank personal and ideological ambition to destroy the other team.
Says the woman who was a frank admirer of Saul Alinsky and his determination to destroy opposition by any means.
Says the woman who was the most divisive figure in America until Barack Obama won the prize.
A real American would have moved heaven and earth to rescue all 41 fellow Americans under siege at Benghazi.
Austin - probably the only sizable town in Texas where a Clinton could stand in one spot for 45 minutes and not get pelted by rotten veggies.
We are most definitely not “on the same team”, Hillary.
No, you old hag. We are not on the same team. You are on the team of Takers. We, who foot the bills for your vote buying programs, are the Makers. And we are sick of it and refuse to continue playing the game so you can have the power to take more of what we make.
Our parents and grandparents were gullible geese. We are not. There will be a split in this nation very shortly when there are no more geese to be plucked.
Imagine that, one of the most polarizing and divisive politicians ever, advocating unity. That’s almost as funny as ObaMao saying Iraq needs a unity govt while he wont even meet with Repubs.
