Debate Between Sanders and Clinton Over Qualifications May Be Over

The two candidates spent two days fielding questions about the other's qualifications

The debate over whether Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders think the other is qualified for the presidency may be over, NBC News reports.

On Wednesday, Sanders responded sharply to a Washington Post story based on an interview Clinton did with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” in which she said the Vermont senator had not done his “homework” on some of his plans. Sanders told supporters at a Philadelphia rally that Clinton was not qualified to be president.

The two candidates spent the next two days fielding questions over the other’s qualifications. While Hillary Clinton avoided answering the question, Sanders stuck to his guns, saying he believed it was her campaign’s strategy to "disqualify him."

Sanders finally walked back his comments on Friday, during an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show, when he said “of course” she’s qualified.

"On her worst day, she would be an infinitely better president than either of the Republican candidates," he said.
