Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And the battle for the soul of the Democratic Party will be between the younger so-called progressives who often I think regressive. But that's another argument, the the younger progressives will come up with all sorts of policies. He is not in that category. He's voted with Trump and Trump policies a couple of times, he he's not Radic what passes for radical left in the United States. Whereas you can make argue for one or two of the other people that standing, and if if they really do go full. For a sharp swing to the left with this whole idea that to take on Trump. You don't you don't was it punch, high punch low to take and therefore you swing across and become as radical as he is. But the mirror image in which case x y l said wins it if it's the traditional wing of the party than it. It's it's someone else. So I'm not force centers.

Oh, see, I'm Barrack Obama. And an experience. But no the media tend to concentrate on these shiny glittery ones. Whereas actually out there in the vastness of the United States of America their name recognition is nowhere near as high.
