In Iowa, Hillary Clinton strongly defends the Common Core, despite strong opposition in some states like NY.

Asked about Common Core, @HillaryClinton says current debate has been "painful" to watch. "Common Core started off as a bipartisan effort."

.@HillaryClinton says Iowa may be more understanding of Common Core b/c Iowa has had its own standards and assessments for years. #iacaucus

"How did we wind up at a point where we are so negative about... how our kids our educated?" -Hillary @HillaryClinton on Common Core

Not a surprise - Big Money supports Common Core, so of course Hillary Clinton does too.
Still, glad to have her on the record.
Now I have one more reason not to support her.
If Jeb Bush becomes the GOP nominee and Clinton is the Democratic nominee, both major party candidates will be Common Core supporters.
The country is moving against Common Core but the political establishment (backed by Big Money) still "absolutely embraces" it.
