I really think Clare’s comment about how the Democratic Party was reeling from losing those white male voters in 2016 speaks to a greater problem of how the Democratic Party has been taking minority voters, many of whom just didn’t show up to vote in 2016, for granted for a very long time without giving them a reason to believe the party is capable of improving their lives in any way. I think this part of Sanders‘ and Warren’s cases for the nomination (Sanders especially), but as he himself admitted in 2016 while trying to contest Clinton, “poor people don’t vote”. This democracy has always been by and for the wealthy, and that has to change soon, if we aren’t destined to fall apart as a country or slide into further fascism.

How are these people so bad? Clare tries to describe Warren and Sanders as being "grassroots" but doesn't use the word, and spends 3 minutes talking about the Midwest and sunny California weather... also, they referenced a 2017 piece predicting that the future of the Dem party would be white males, but then 2018 happened...

The “Black” candidates were TERRIBLE candidates. And most black people are serious voters now. And most us will not support a candidate who does not have a strong, specific, tangible and real black agenda as part of their platform.

41 minutes to talk about the horserace? Please, gotta love degreed class youngsters. It shouldn't take 41 minutes to understand Harris was about to get shellacked on Super Tuesday by Bernie Sanders. She did what every other degreed class phony does - took her ball and went home. Like Hillary, she blamed everyone but herself. #GoodRiddance

Really struck by how all they seem to talk about is shallow identity politics. They hardly ever discuss the actual proposed policies as a factor that goes into the candidates’ support or lack thereof. I was a fan during the 2016 election but it’s clear to me how very vapid this podcast is

She basically ran an awful campaign with no clear message or agenda- especially to the base she was appealing to- the black vote- I attended her rally in Oakland- she was to first to announce and the first to drop out- who does that? this was an epic fail for a mediocre candidate period.

If people continue listening to mainstream news you will always be behind the ball as they are paid to misinform. They tell you who the big candidates are and we're supposed to jump on board. Im sorry l have a brain. I knew as soon as Kamala announced that she wasnt it. The media had too much positive coverage with hardly anything negative to say about her inspite of her horrible prosecutorial hx.

I'm so glad the discussion about regional hostility and Nate's example about firing Clare at the end weren't edited out. Even though it's a bit off topic they add levity and character. And as an immigrant who lived in New Jersey first and then Indiana, can confirm that Midwesterners will say you're wrong with a smile on your face while east coasters will shout it at you while pinning you to the ground.

Her race and gender didnt have anything to do as to why she dropped out. Stop stating that as an issue, it's really stupid and intellectually lazy. Obama and Trump won bc they ran as Populists. It's the reason why Bernie is going to win. Harris and the rest of the corporate dems centrists hacks can kick rocks. I'm an African American male and I support Bernie bc of his policies.

I just found your channel, but I'm perplexed why do guys refuse give Sanders a fair shake. Hear me out: Sanders favorability rivals Biden at 75%. He's the most trusted on healthcare which is the most important issue to Democrats. He single-handily redefine the ideological field and is the only reason were talking about healthcare and college reform in the first place. He's a strong debater who gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money at the height of her power and has massive appeal in the very areas you recognized as important. He's polling well in the early states (right now) and will probably take New Hampshire again. Point being, Sanders still has a shot.

Re: "concern about a predominantly white field of candidates" . . . in a 40 min podcast none of the (admittedly all white) panelists mentioned Andrew Yang. Is that because he isn't polling "top tier" or does it that reveal our own blind spots regarding Asian candidates? I love this podcast and the RUvid channel, but this seemed like a noteworthy omission.
Charlie Brungus
Charlie Brungus 9 months ago
They try to pretend they are neutral, its disingenuous at this point. Why people want to vote for someone should matter. Bernie is more or less second right now but the focus can never be on him and his movement in almost all of these discussions. He is doing well because of his IDEAS something that is almost never discussed when it should be totally relevant.

Good rule of thumb, dem contenders from liberal states and republican contenders from conservative states are going to struggle when vying for the presidential nomination. I never understood the hype over Harris. She was a tough prosecutor but never demonstrated an ability to reach across the aisle and/or convert right leaning voters.

@A Osborne She doesnt think biden will win and is angling for a cabinet position in the next administration and trying to set herself up as tacting left for a future run. A few days ago at a campaign event she quoted Madeleine Albright saying theres a special place in you know where for women who dont support each other (hint hint). During the debates she practically called biden racist and hardly ever went after warren/bernie. Who knows... there isnt a political rule book anymore.

"Electable" may hurt Klobuchar. Which doesn't necessarily correlate with actually being electable. The others who have languished or dropped out haven't done a good job as candidates. That includes plenty of >50yo white dudes. The people who have run notably good campaigns are Warren, Buttigieg, and Yang. One's a woman, one's homosexual, one's Chinese-American. Harris's problem isn't being Black/Indian-American. It's that she sucked. Not shocking for someone who had never run a really competitive race before. And minimizing any other kind of diversity with remaining candidates is bad form and just plain inaccurate. Erasure, as some put it. Biden would be just the second Catholic president, a group that has steadily been a quarter of the country since its founding. Sanders the first Jew. Warren the first woman. Buttigieg the first open homosexual. Those are the four candidates over 5%, and if you claim it's not diverse, well, that's your problem, not theirs.

Being President is not a job. There's no job interview. So, having a nice resumé is useless! The office of President is a calling for leadership, service and connections. He/she must be a person of conviction, be a people's person, a promblem solver, respectful, ethical, a leader and humble! Kamala, being black, or being a woman wasn't enough to move the majority blacks nor women. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Yang 2020!
