Clinton says wealth comments don't define her

By

DENVER (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton says her "inartful" comments about her family's wealth don't "change who I am or what I've stood for my entire life, what I stand for today."

The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate tells PBS "NewsHour" that the recession hasn't ended for many Americans and many families are struggling.

Clinton said in a recent interview with ABC News that she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, were "dead broke" when they left the White House in early 2001.

Republicans point out that the family has made millions of dollars since the end of Clinton's presidency and say Hillary Clinton doesn't understand the problems of ordinary Americans.

Bill Clinton told NBC at the Clinton Global Initiative America that his wife is "not out of touch."
