CNN debate host Anderson Cooper asked Clinton whether she was a progressive or a moderate after the former secretary of state defended changing her stance on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

Cooper asked Clinton if she changed her political stance based on who she was talking to and mentioned a comment that she made last month in New Hampshire in which she said that she pleaded "guilty" to "being kind of moderate and center."

Clinton said she didn't "take a back seat to anyone" when it came to progressive experience or commitment.

"I'm a progressive, but I'm a progressive who likes to get things done," Clinton said to applause. "And I know how to find common ground and I know how to stand my ground and I have proved that in every position that I've had."
