Andrea Mitchell Gushes Over Hillary Moving Left: 'Not Afraid to Run as Her Own Woman'

On Thursday's NBC Today, correspondent Andrea Mitchell cheered Hillary Clinton "carving out her own identity as a candidate" by "breaking ranks with a key part of her husband's legacy – a tough anti-crime bill now blamed for some of the problems dividing communities like Baltimore."

Mitchell explained: "Among other reforms, Clinton called for an end to 'the era of mass incarceration.' But that is a rejection of tough measures signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1994....it led to the imprisonment of hundreds of thousands of men, largely black men, for relatively minor offenses."
