Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders immediately was hit during Tuesday's Democratic presidential debate on the fact he says he is a democratic socialist and not a capitalist.

Sanders said the United States should "look to countries like Denmark, like Sweden and Norway and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people."

Moderator Anderson Cooper asked if any of the four other candidates on the stage isn't a capitalist.

Clinton said she agrees with Sanders on inequality, but what really needs to happen is that America must "save capitalism from itself."

"But we are not Denmark," she said. "I love Denmark. We are the United States of America and it's our job to rein in the excesses of capitalism so it doesn't run amok and doesn't cause the kind of inequities we're seeing."
