Sen. Al Franken Hopes Congress Won't Obstruct Clinton If She Wins

While she was a senator, Hillary Clinton worked well with her colleagues from both sides of the aisle, and that will continue if she becomes president, and it will be up to congressional Republicans to make sure that happens, Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken said Tuesday.

"If Hillary wins, which I obviously hope she does, it's going to be a little bit in their side of the court," Franken told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. "They're going to have to figure out how the Republican Party, what it's going to be going forward, and I hope we don't see a repeat of obstructionism that we saw during the Obama administration.

"I hope we work together. I think that she always talks about trying to find common ground, standing her ground when she has to, but I'm looking forward to doing my job and working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle."

This year's election has centered, in many cases on disaffected working class and middle class voters, and Franken said Clinton has approaches to shoring up the nation's middle class.

"One of them isn't tax cuts for the very wealthiest Americans," said Franken. "It's about things like sick leave and higher minimum wage and making sure we have early childhood education.

"Making college more affordable, those are the things I wish we had been talking about a little bit more in this race. And I think that is a very important topic, and there's all kinds of different takes on how to do that."
