The two U.S. Democratic presidential candidates, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, are feuding over who is qualified to be the country's leader, trading contentious barbs Thursday even as they made a nominal effort to cool the rhetoric between them.

"She has attacked me for being unqualified, and if I am attacked for being unqualified, I will respond in kind," Sanders told reporters in Philadelphia, a major eastern city where Democrats are holding a presidential nominating election April 26. "I'm not going to get beaten up."

Clinton, in New York, criticized Sanders for his lack of details in promoting his agenda aimed at curbing the financial clout of Wall Street, saying, "I think it is important to tell people how you're going to get things done. Don't make promises you can't keep."
 
But even as they sniped at each other, Sanders said, "I do have respect for Secretary Clinton."

For her part, Clinton said she did not know why Sanders is saying she is unqualified to be president, but would take him "anytime" over the two front-running Republican presidential contenders, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump.
