Hillary Clinton: 'I come from the 60s'

At Saturday night's Democratic presidential debate, Hillary Clinton was asked about the race-related activism at the University of Missouri that resulted in the university system president's resignation. The former secretary of state was quick to side with the protesting students.

"I come from the sixties," Clinton said. "A long time ago. There was a lot of activism on campus [...] and I do appreciate the way young people are standing up and speaking out."

"I think [it] reflects the deep sense of concern, even despair, that so many young people, particularly of color, have."

If Clinton does ultimately secure the Democratic nomination, you can bet that '60s quote will find its way into a GOP attack ad in the general election.
