On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton called on Americans not to support candidates for office who openly say they won’t compromise.

“Don’t vote for someone who proudly says he or she will never compromise,” the former secretary of state, senator and first lady said in remarks at the National Council for Behavioral Health conference in Washington, DC.

“You’ve got to compromise. You give a little to get something. … That’s the way our system has survived.”

The widely rumored 2016 presidential candidate added: “Secondly, don’t give them any money. Find someone in your party … who’s not going to Washington proudly to destroy what our founders built.”
