Sen. Sanders was relentlessly on message when it came to one issue during the Democratic debate on NBC this Sunday, and that's whether he's going to allow Wall Street to influence his administration if he's elected president.

Here's how he responded after the moderators asked him to weigh in on Hillary Clinton's response to what her husband's role might be with advising her administration.

SANDERS: If you have an administration stacked with Wall Street appointees, you ain't gonna accomplish very much, so here's a promise that I make. And I mentioned a moment ago how corrupt the system is.

Goldman Sachs paying a five billion dollar fine, gives this country in recent history a Republican Secretary of Treasury, a Democratic Secretary of Treasury.

Here's a promise. If elected president, Goldman Sachs is not going to have... bring forth a Secretary of Treasury for a Sanders administration.

It would be nice to see Hillary Clinton make the same promise. She's been championing herself as some supposed opponent of Wall Street these days. Enough of allowing the fox to guard the hen house.
