In Latest Dem Debate, "Single Issue Candidate" Hillary Slams Bernie For Being "A Single Issue Candidate"

The fanboys of NBC claim Clinton--whose single issue is putting her and her dessicated spouse back into the Oval Office--was able to douse Bernie's "perceived passion with a cool dose of realism." But from the sounds of it, what she really did was try to out-Bernie Bernie:
Instead of taking swings at her opponent as she has in previous debates, Clinton made it clear she agrees with Sanders' progressive principles. She let him throw the punches while she subtly undermined his competence and readiness to enact those principles. 
Clinton began the night by saying she wants to "knock down all the barriers that are holding Americans back," not just the economic ones Sanders emphasizes. And she ended the evening with a devastating new line: "I am not a single issue candidate and I do not believe we live in a single issue country."
Tell me how that line is "devastating" and we'll both know.
