    Bill Clinton attacked Hillary's rival, Bernie Sanders, saying that the Sanders campaign was being dishonest with people late on Sunday in New Hampshire. 

    Bill Clinton said Sanders' message was "hermetically-sealed" from reality and ridiculed its implication that "anybody that doesn't agree... is a tool of the establishment.'" 

    The remarks represent a big step up for the Clintons after polls came out suggesting that Sanders could be the victor in the stae's upcoming primary. 

    Bill Clinton appeared visibly frustrated at criticism over his wife's ties to Wall Street as he spoke to a crowd of about 300 at a middle school in Milford, New Hampshire.
