Here are the latest Goldman Sachs speeches:

Hillary Clinton Goldman Sachs Wikileaks Speech - A Need To Do Something Because For Political Reasons

Hillary Clinton says to Goldman that Dodd-Frank (the Wall Street regulation bill from after the 2008 crash) is just for political purposes. She also says Wall Street is very important.

*Clinton Said, With Dodd-Frank, There Was "A Need To Do Something Because For Political Reasons" Because Members Of Congress "Can't Sit Idly By And Do Nothing." *"And with political people, again, I would say the same thing, you know, there was a lot of complaining about Dodd-Frank, but there was also a need to do something because for political reasons, if you were an elected member of Congress and people in your constituency were losing jobs and shutting businesses and everybody in the press is saying it's all the fault of Wall Street, you can't sit idly by and do nothing, but what you do is really important."

Hillary Clinton Goldman Sachs Wikileaks Speech - "Courageous" in Helping Wall Street

Tim O'Neill, the head of the Goldman Sachs Global Co-Head of the Investment Management Division, calls Hillary Clinton courageous for her work in helping Wall Street.

*Tim O'Neill Told Clinton "We Really Did Appreciate It" When She Had Been "Courageous In Some Respects To Associated With Wall Street And This Environment." *"MR. O'NEILL: By the way, we really did appreciate when you were the senator from New York and your continued involvement in the issues (inaudible) to be courageous in some respects to associated with Wall Street and this environment. Thank you very much. SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, I don't feel particularly courageous. I mean, if we're going to be an effective, efficient economy, we need to have all part of that engine running well, and that includes Wall Street and Main Street. And there's a big disconnect and a lot of confusion right now. So I'm not interested in, you know, turning the clock back or pointing fingers, but I am interested in trying to figure out how we come together to chart a better way forward and one that will restore confidence in, you know, small and medium-size businesses and consumers and begin to chip away at the unemployment rate. So it's something that I, you know, if you're a realist, you know that people have different roles to play in politics, economics, and this is an important role, but I do think that there has to be an understanding of how what happens here on Wall Street has such broad consequences not just for the domestic but the global economy, so more thought has to be given to the process and transactions and regulations so that we don't kill or maim what works, but we concentrate on the most effective way of moving forward with the brainpower and the financial power that exists here."

Hillary Clinton Goldman Sachs Wikileaks Speech - I Represented All Of You For Eight Years.

Hillary Clinton tells Goldman Sachs that "I represented you" after 9/11.

*Clinton Said "I Represented All Of You For Eight Years. I Had Great Relations And Worked So Close Together After 9/11 To Rebuild Downtown." *"I represented all of you for eight years. I had great relations and worked so close together after 9/11 to rebuild downtown, and a lot of respect for the work you do and the people who do it, but I do -- I think that when we talk about the regulators and the politicians, the economic consequences of bad decisions back in '08, you know, were devastating, and they had repercussions throughout the world." [GS2, 10/24/13]

Hillary Clinton Goldman Sachs Wikileaks Speech - Scared of Regulations?

Apparently, banks aren't doing what they need to do because they're scared of regulations. This was after we gave those banks billions in TARP funds and Federal Reserve near-0 interest loans.

*Clinton Said the banks are not doing what they need to do because they're scared of regulations, they're scared of the other shoe dropping, they're just plain scared, so credit is not flowing the way it needs to to restart economic growth. So people are, you know, a little -- they're still uncertain, and they're uncertain both because they don't know what might come next in terms of regulations, but they're also uncertain because of changes in a global economy that we're only beginning to take hold of."

Hillary Clinton Wikileaks - "Take full advantage of" Latinos

In an email to John Podesta, a fellow staffer says this:

We are in immediate need of a locally recognized Latino staff person who can do outreach on a full time basis. Lorella has been very helpful and is working hard with our Latino base but we need to improve our visibility with a local, well recognized Latino or Latina on staff . Sen Sanders has hired a Latina state director and is taking full advantage of the situation. We need this person to involve our high profile Latino and Latina surrogates , like Ken Salazar, Federico Pena, Lucia Guzman, Chrisanta Duran and our state Latino electeds up and down the Front Range . We need to work Latino media outlets and generally energize this key constituency in the three weeks before our caucus. We need this now.
