Sanders, Clinton trade barbs over who's qualified to be president

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is greeted by supporters during a campaign stop on the street in New YorkBy Luciana Lopez and Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) – Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders doubled down on Thursday on his assertion that his rival for the Democratic Party’s nomination, Hillary Clinton, is unqualified to be president as the two campaigns became increasingly testy two weeks before New York’s election contest. Clinton, stung by a string of losses in other states, this week sharply questioned Sanders’ credentials and ability to carry out a campaign pledge to break up the big banks. Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, told reporters in Philadelphia that Clinton had come after him in a “really uncalled-for way” and again questioned the Democratic front-runner’s own fitness for the Oval Office.
