Actress and progressive activist Susan Sarandon formally lent her support to Bernie Sanders at an Iowa rally this evening, passing over Hillary Clinton a second time for the job.
By Francesca Chambers, White House Correspondent For Dailymail.com In Mason City, Iowa:
A decider for Sarandon, who has known Sanders for more than two decades, was Clinton’s 2002 vote for the Iraq War as a New York senator, a military conflict that Sanders did not support.
‘That’s where Hillary Clinton lost me,’ she told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview, ‘because there was plenty of information that even I had that said there was a real problem with the logic involved.’
Clinton went on to be secretary of state and has more experience in the foreign policy realm than Sanders, who has has focused his legislative career on fighting for economic justice.
‘But what is experience without judgement,’ Sarandon said tonight after a Sanders rally in northern Iowa. ‘She’s had a job but what has she done that we’re bragging about. How has she led?’
