Hillary Feeling the Bern in her Pantsuit: Clinton's frustration grows, as primary race drags on


Last weekend when Bernie Sanders swept three states I declared it was meaningless and the race was over in Hillary’s favor regardless. 
However, this week Hillary Clinton sure didn’t act like a presumptive nominee who has it in the bag.  So, maybe her internal polls are painting a picture for her she doesn’t like?
AP reports Hillary Clinton snapped at a Greenpeace protester. She linked Bernie Sanders and tea party Republicans. And she bristled with anger when nearly two dozen Sanders supporters marched out of an event near her home outside New York City, shouting "if she wins, we lose."

"They don't want to listen to anyone else," she shot back. "We actually have to do something. Not just complain about what is happening."

After a year of campaigning, months of debates and 35 primary elections, Sanders is finally getting under Clinton's skin in the Democratic presidential race.

Clinton has spent weeks largely ignoring Sanders and trying to focus on Republican front-runner Donald Trump. Now, after several primary losses and with a tough fight in New York on the horizon, Clinton is showing flashes of frustration with the Vermont senator — irritation that could undermine her efforts to unite the party around her candidacy.
