Hillary: 'It's time to get real'

From NBC's Jessica Turtletaub

In a speech delivered this morning at Hunter College in New York, Clinton dug in her heels and continued to hit home that her campaign is offering the public more than just rhetoric. "It is time to get real, to get real about how we actually win this election and get real about the challenges facing America."

Contrasting her campaign with Obama's and McCain's, Clinton boasted "sound solutions" as opposed to "sound bites," and promised "21st-century solutions" rather than "more of the same old Republican policies." She also questioned Obama's record and his readiness to tackle what she described as the "toughest job in the world." 

"Americans have a choice to make this election," she said "and that choice matters. It's about picking a president who relies not just on words, but on work… We need to make a choice between speeches and solutions. Because while words matter greatly, the best words in the world aren't enough unless you match them with action."
