Bernie Sanders is a candidate who knows how to give credit where credit is due.

As the 2016 election heats up, Sanders has begun drawing clearer distinctions between himself and opponent Hillary Clinton. But during an appearance Sunday on ABC‘s This Week, he admitted he and the former secretary of state “agree on a number of issues” – and then he even threw in a compliment.

“On her worst day, Hillary Clinton will be an infinitely better candidate and president than the Republican candidate on his best day,” the Democratic presidential hopeful said. “But having said that, we have very significant differences.”

Sanders elaborated on those differences in an interview Monday on CNN’s New Day.

The Vermont senator has earned zero Senate endorsements in his campaign thus far – unlike Clinton, who has racked up 31, according to Politico.

When asked about his endorsement dearth by CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger, Sanders replied, “It tells you that one of us is a candidate of the establishment, one of us is involved in establishment politics and establishment economics, and it says that, maybe, the other candidate is prepared to take on the establishment.”
