ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took aim at Republican rivals saying, "Shallow slogans do not add up to strategy," at a speech in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As she warned that the U.S. needs to be prepared for another "terrorist attack," she also said some of her Republican rivals have been reckless with their rhetoric. She said waging the fight against Islamic State will require "serious leadership." "Unfortunately our political debate has been anything but serious," she said. "We can't afford another ground war in the Middle East, that is exactly what ISIS wants from us." Quoting Republican Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz she said, "Promising to carpet bomb until the desert glows doesn't make you sound strong, it makes you sound like you are in over your head." "Donald Trump's proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States has rightly caused outrage in our country and around the world," she said. Clinton is leading Sen. Bernie Sanders for her party's support by 47 percent to 26 percent, according to a five-day rolling poll by Reuters/Ipsos dated Dec. 11.
