State submits cooling plan for Angola's Death Row

At the heart of her message was a phrase that Clinton repeated multiple times during her remarks.“I want you to understand, I will not promise you something I cannot deliver,” Clinton said. “I will not make promises I know I cannot keep.” The pragmatic vow was a subtle dig at her opponent Bernie Sanders, who has campaigned on platforms of free college and universal healthcare.
