"Okay so this is not about which side of the aisle moderate or progressive that he is even saying. This should tell you something and then and let's go to. The last debate. Never thought that debates mattered but the last debate before the New Hampshire primary was probably the most pivotal debate. I've ever seen in my life one. ABC News gave them time to talk. which let me celebrate that but what happened on that stage? Was that what you saw was that you know Biden never ever is a no show what you saw Elizabeth. Warren didn't perform as well as her expectations. And Amy Klobuchar knocked it out of the park and I I have proof of that. Amy Only got four questions because she was low in the polls Elizabeth got seven. Amy and Elizabeth had the same amount of time during that debate because amy knew how to Elba herself in had our answer the questions and she showed a form of leadership that at least some people recognize. Nice that's what happened to Elizabeth Bernie did what he needed to do. No surprise so. I'm just telling you right now that that's part of the problem. What amy did in that debate bait helped her when people are so unsettled about where to go that you would look at a warrant at an? Amy tells you about what people are looking at. And it's it's not about agenda it's about trump north. Solomon I wanted to ask you about the whole issue of the turnout. Obviously Iowa was a disappointment in terms of what the expectations were to degree of enthusiasm. That many of the organizers expected What's your sense of how? How for this particular volt will occur today and especially the issue of turnout? Well what I saw yesterday for instance. I've been to close to a dozen cousin candidate events in the last week or so. Yesterday I went to one that was for Biden and the biggest city in the state here in Manchester and if Joe Biden had been responsible for so many deaths have so many people in Iraq and elsewhere through supporting war through supporting supporting a neoliberal agenda. I would almost felt sorry for him. Because the turnout was so scant and the you had the feeling of the campaign falling. Apart for Joe Biden. I also was out in a small town. Franklin Pierce University elsewhere in the State Bernie just rocked the House with a multicultural young audience of students and it was powerful powerful and he was talking about climate and he was talking about student debt and you could feel the emergence of a new consciousness if you will among a new generation generation and so there was this sort of transcendent feeling in the room and then last night I went to Exeter High School Public High School where Pete Buddha judge spoke and it was massive. The turn out was just incredibly large especially for not a big urban area area would guess five hundred six hundred cars in the parking lot. Couple thousand people. There and the enthusiasm was there and so I think that speaks to the the the vectors of the turn out where the bottom is falling out from the Biden campaign and Bernie has a very strong base and juiced juiced up by corporate media that are not looking at the content of what Buddha judge is putting forward. There's a tremendous amount of hype that is catching on at at least in this state in terms of the grass roots or some of the grassroots for Buddha judge. And I think it's very important for not only progresses but others wherever you're coming from politically to see that what Buddha judges doing is swinging to the corporate center. He's done it all year but in the last three days he's emerged as a Technocratic spokesperson for austerity. He's an austerity technocrat. and He's speaking for back to the future obsession with deficits cutting into the potential for anything like a green new deal and that is part of the choice. That's in front of the voters today. I mean I wanted to ask. You norm the media coverage nationally. And how much you're covering it. Because you're out on the streets and New Hampshire right now it's just a -standingly L. The corporate media. I'm not talking about Fox. I'm talking about MSNBC AND CNN so anti Bernie. It's just remarkable. Yesterday I think one of the commentator Jews the term. Let's say let's talk about all. The candidates burning obviously has flatlined at number one. They say flatlined at number one I was trying to think. How do you say number one in a negative way flatlined? So there's nothing about Amy Klobuchar. She is really risen in the polls at something like four to seven percent and then they talked about the amy surge. And I'm just wondering I mean today on. MSNBC in the morning there right there in Manchester trump adjust spoken. And there was Bernie at a rally of Seventy I. Five hundred people of the six people in their little circle none had been to Bernie Sanders event last night which was not far away but they've been many different places And and the as John Holloman was talking about you know very significant seventy five hundred people at Bernie's rally last night. Mika Brzezinski Jenky said Yeah but who knows if any of them are from here or something like that. If they're from here from New Hampshire and this is a clip of MSNBC's Chuck Todd. I want to bring up something that Jonathan last put in the bulwark today and it was about how in Ruth. We've all been on the receiving end of Birdie pretty online brigade. And here's what he says. He says no other candidate as anything like this sort of digital browns shirt for a game I mean except for Donald Trump. The question no one is asking is this. What if you can't win the presidency without an online mov? What if we now live in a world? Where having a bullying Agra social media army running around popping anyone in sticks their head up as it's either important ingredient for or critical market marker of success? That's everybody's freaking out about this but you saw the mega-rallies that's preparing around here. There are people coming from three or four states on that. That's real and you know that this is like burning. That's really depressing sentence that you just read Norman. Solomon if you could comment that was chuck todd of MSNBC. I would boil down to a five year. Corporate media assault on Bernie Sanders unders. There was a notorious One day period that fear. The Media Watch Group documented on the eve of the pivotal Michigan Primary in two thousand sixteen where the newspaper owned by the richest person in the world. Jeff bezos The Washington Post published sixteen negative articles goals about Bernie Sanders in sixteen hours. And that pattern has continued. And what we've seen in recent weeks as Bernie strength breath has risen is an escalation of the war on Bernie not one hundred percent or on Bernie but the vast preponderance of coverage of Bernie from corporate separate media and people need to remember that if you for instance don't trust comcast. Why would you trust a network that is owned owned by comcast? These are class interests being worked out where the top strata of ownership and investors hires. The CEO Hires the managing editors was hires the reporters. And so we're seeing an not today rhetorical about it but we really are seeing a class war underway and Bernie. Sanders is very clear about about who you lines with. He aligns with working people. He aligns with the elderly hero alliance with children who neo and before that neo natal care. Her and nutrition one to five. He's fighting for people who don't have power in the society suffer from lack of power and he's fighting against those who have too much power you're and so the net effect is it's not only the Democrat National Committee. That Bernie is up against. I think even more significantly the Bernie Sanders. There's campaign which now I think truly is a movement or a constellation of movements the Bernie Sanders campaign is up against the oligarchy and that oligarchies oligarchy biggest and strongest arm or the corporate media outlets. We're going to break and come back to this discussion. We'll also be joined by MOLLY CRAB APO Arnie. Arnesen send is joining us from New Hampshire as Solomon of Routes Action Dot. Org stay with us. Do you listen to. I know that may.

"King James by Anderson Impact. This is democracy now democracy now dot Org the Warren Patriot. I made me good with Juan Gonzalez. Well polls have opened in New Hampshire for the first primary of the election season. The vote comes eight days. After the still disputed Iowa caucus where both Bernie Senator Bernie Sanders and former South Bend Mayor Pete. Buddha judge claimed victory both both candidates have asked for a partial RECA- novus of the results on Monday nights. Sanders of Vermont held a massive rally and concert. At the University of New Hampshire in Durham Room attended by over seven thousand people. This turnout tells me why we're going to win here in the Hampshire why we're going to win the Democratic nomination and why I we are going to defeat the most dangerous president in the modern history of America Donald Trump and the reason then that we are going to win is the American people no matter what their political views may be sick and tired of a president. It's a pathological. Liar is running a corrupt administration ministration. who is a bully? And the person who is racist sexist signed homophobia religious surgers bigger and those are his squanders prison and trump also so held a major rally in Manchester at southern New Hampshire University. Monday the crowd was estimated around eleven thousand people. Meanwhile Democratic Senator Entertained Kluber Sharp Minnesota Campaign Nashua in recent days. She's picked up the endorsements of three significant newspapers New Hampshire. If you are struggling to pay for that child care for your kids and choose between that and the long term care for your parents I know you and I will fight for you and if view are struggling to decide between filling your refrigerator and filling that prescription drug I know you and I will fight fight for you. That is that sacred trust in this country Senator Elizabeth Warren campaigned in Portsmouth New Hampshire on Monday. Our democracy hangs in the balance. So it comes to you New Hampshire to decide when there's this much fear when there's this much on the line do we crouch down. Do we cower back up or do we fight back me on fighting back to talk about today's primary in New Hampshire. We're joined by three guests. Arnie Arnie Arnesen is with US LONGTIME RADIO AND TV host in New Hampshire. She's the host of the attitude on W. NHL FM in Concord New Hampshire former former New Hampshire legislator democratic gubernatorial candidate in the nineteen ninety-two elections in Manchester New Hampshire right now as is norm Solomon Solomon Co founder and national coordinator of Routes Action Dot. Org which is supporting Bernie Sanders and here in New York the artist writer and activist Molly Crab Apple who recently published a series of sketches from her time on the campaign trail with Bernie Sanders in Iowa and New Hampshire. We welcome you all to democracy now. Arnie Arnie Arnesen. Let's begin with you you are. I guess. Twenty four years ago right leading up to the new album right leading up to the New Hampshire primary at that time. Then it was. That was the reelection of President Clinton but right now you're in the thick of it. Why don't you describe what's happening happening in New Hampshire? Now you're in Manchester where president trump held a rally of some eleven thousand people last night. Right nearby Bernie Sanders. I was in Durham University of New Hampshire. Seventy five hundred people packed in talk about what's happening today in your state. Well obviously basically what Donald Trump does is what he does so well. He's the performance artist in chief and he knew to come right into the center of this election in order to make sure that he was the attention shen and that we were not I think he was not successful. Amy Let me just say something. I do think there's going to be huge turnout today and I think in in some ways the reason why there needs to be even bigger turnout is because of the disappointment in Iowa as not just the chaos of in Iowa it's predicted there'd be a huge spike. And you turn out there'd be a huge spike in turnout. Bigger than even what happened with Barack Obama and it didn't even come close and I think to a large number of people that is terrifying. Not only the chaos but but the fact that there wasn't that level of enthusiasm given the fact that now the opposition is Donald Trump. It's not whether there's a Barack Obama on the stage or someone that's sort of floats your boat. It's it's that we really do. Have the tyrant chief and now more than ever we need to show up. We need to exercise. Unfortunately in Iowa not the franchise but we need to participate. I think if you're gonNA see a huge turnout here. I am praying that you see a huge turnout with young people that has always been Bernie's calling card is that he can expand the base and I no every young person that I possibly know. And nobody's doing anything but supporting Bernie which I think. He's really exciting. I am a little bit worried though. And that is that. There's there's a lot of anxiety and fear and anger going into this campaign and this election. People are still undecided. This morning amy. They're undecided undecided. This morning. I have never seen the electorate so fluid and here is my fear. My fear is is that when you were undecided and Wayne you're frightened. What you saw happen in Dixville Notch could happen today and that is we use a pencil New Hampshire? That's our technology but not only do you get to fill fill in little circles. You can write in names and although Michael Bloomberg who would be our benevolent. Despot leader is not running in New Hampshire. Let me remind remind everyone not only is he buying Ed's in all the states but the Super Tuesday states are what Massachusetts and Vermont. What do we know about New Hampshire along slender state? We are Massachusetts and Vermont. So all those ads have also been appearing here and because people are so afraid trade and don't know where to go he becomes the convenient punt. If I'm in decided where do I go. That's not a solution. That's not democracy. You seeded your voice. You've seen at your choice and you say to the billionaire not a problem take care of me. That's not what democracy does but I'm GonNa tell you right right now. Watch that because he was. I suspect that what happened. Dixville Notch was in part. Because he's so brilliant all you have to do is sit down with five people and talk them through With and what do you get free media on top of his billions of dollars so I am just warning people that this is easy but it's not Democrat and and therefore you have to make a choice and Arnie I wanted to ask you also about the fact that in this primary independence and Republicans can can vote as well right the impact that that might have on the final tally for all the candidates. That's not correct. That's deal we. We have no no we. The largest group of voters in New Hampshire are undeclared independence. They represent about forty two percent of the state. The rest of it is divided up almost equally really between Republicans and Democrats months ago weeks ago. You had to make a decision in a party if you're a republican or if you're a Democrat and wanted wanted to become an undeclared you had to decide then and change your status two undeclared because only undeclared can pick up either a republican ballot or democratic ballot that means Republicans can't play in the Democratic primary unless months ago or weeks ago they change their status to undeclared declared so but what that means is that whoever is running for president as a Democrat in New Hampshire has to court those undeclared voters. And I'd say okay then about a third of them are probably Republicans and reliable Republicans but they just choose not to associate and then the rest of them are probably another third probably Democrat. But it's that group the center that I think a lot of the Democratic candidates are trying to court so don't assume that what Donald Trump said again never trust rush the information coming out of Mr Trump Republicans cannot participate in a Democratic primary only the undeclared but undeclared are pivotal pivotal. Everyone they can significantly change the outcome and just to be clear for people who are wondering what you mean by Dixville Notch the community unity that votes at midnight. The first one in New Hampshire that only had five almost didn't happen right because a developer. Who didn't live there full time? They didn't think he was GONNA come back. Doc and then there wouldn't have been a corum but then he came back and that there were three write in votes for for Michael Bloomberg one four Bernie Sanders one for Buddha judge. Now it's it's it's an amazing story but unfortunately it also gives you a headline and Bloomberg understands that because he he can buy everything including the most sophisticated consultants on the planet and again. I'm telling you people are still undecided. And Amy let me just give you one example mum the most thoughtful progressives I know in my state sent me an email and he said my heart is with Elizabeth and Bernie but my head is saying maybe pete or.

"In just four hours midnight eastern time new HAMPSHIRITES will start voting in the first primary the two thousand twenty presidential race. You're looking there at Dixville. Notch side of the earliest balloting. Along with Hart's Location and across the state candidates have been making last minute pitches. Buddha judge tonight expected shortly Exeter Bernie Sanders speaking soon in dorm. Orm Joe Biden also campaigning. Tonight president trump who faces only token republican opposition. Tomorrow speaking as well tonight in Manchester. He is as you might imagine. The center of two competing story lines on the democratic side. One that Democrats are wilting. In the face of him and Joe Biden is in trouble and to the Joe Biden is hanging on just fine and predicts trouble in November for the president. This contracting notions are reflected in a pair of polls neither of which the last word on tomorrow or the rest of the race but both worth mentioning for what what they have to say about the momentum right here and right now one from C. N. N.'s final tracking poll in the state show Senator Bernie Sanders with a significant lead over Pete. Buddha judge Joe Biden Leiden distant third followed closely by senators. Warn Amy Klobuchar. The other Polish national one from Quinnipiac and in addition to showing Joe Biden a solid second place. It also has all those same candidates beating the president in a head to head matchup plus one at the top Mike Bloomberg running ahead by the widest margin of all. Now bearing in mind that by this time tomorrow night vote. The voters will certainly render some those predictions mood. Let's get a late read on what we know. What is happening on the ground in New Hampshire starting? CNN's political article director David Chalian. WHO's in Manchester Tonight so obviously polls W- they are where they are. The latest poll is interesting. It shows how the moderate candidates khanates or splitting potential voters expect an answer could firm up a sanders advantage. Well it might sanders does win green here and remember Anderson Bernie Sanders one here by twenty points against Hillary Clinton for years ago. Obviously that was a one on one race but if indeed the result looks like not just our report a bunch of polls showing him with an edge in this state. He'll then have come off a very strong showing in Iowa. A victory in New Hampshire. If that's what happens tomorrow tomorrow. And he will be the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. Something that had been Joe Biden's position for the entirety of last year. That's going to be a abuse shuffling of that happened in these going to no doubt 'cause a lot of hand wringing inside the sort of establishment wing of the Democratic Party if indeed Having a self described democratic socialist at the top of the ticket is the best way to move forward and be Donald Trump. There's going to be a lot of conversation about Out that if that's what New Hampshire produces tomorrow night. The candidates have been all over the state obviously today. What what's been kind of the gist of their last? Minute Appeals Yeah. I actually caught up with a couple of the my I saw people to earlier in the day. And then Amy Klobuchar Buddha just closing message he was aware of the Sanders position in this state and he was taking on Sanders specifically on the raising of middle class taxes to help pay his medicare for all plan. which you know footage doesn't support Porto? He was trying to draw that contrast he also was saying. You know it can't just be revolution versus status quo. That's the argument. He's making he says most of us don't see ourselves in that picture of revolution versus status quo. He's claiming that's Bernie. Sanders is depicting as the choice. Here asper Amy Klobuchar. I will tell you it was probably the best I've ever seen her on the campaign trail. This is somebody who is a supremely confident in this moment for her. She felt good obviously about that Friday night. Debate performance you see in these polls over the weekend that she has got a bit of momentum. Now we'll see if that translates it's to actual votes tomorrow clearly. Being with her in Exeter New Hampshire. Today you could see a candidate. That was ultra comfortable in her skin. In this moment that she thinks things are gelling for her right now. David Jolly and stay right where you are want to bring in a W. and H. N. radios Arnie Arnesen who's a longtime observer and player in in New Hampshire politics including the state's first female nominee for governor also senior political correspondent Dana Bash. Denny is the expectation their New Hampshire that that the primary areas for sanders or Buddha. Judge to lose yes. That is the expectation. No question about it. But you know Anderson That history three shows. That New Hampshire likes to surprise. Everybody the expectation in two thousand eight was that it was for Hillary Clinton's to lose and It was it was. It was a problem in two thousand sixteen for Hillary Clinton's to lose and she did and there are lots of other other examples through history of how Hampshire voters like to surprise the political chattering. Class surprise the voters in the later states to try to stir things up and change the The way that the race is. It's not clear that that it's going to happen. In this case for lots of reasons the biggest of which is that Bernie. Sanders showed for years ago that he is very popular. Here in New Hampshire. He is a neighboring senator and so That there doesn't seem to be any change in that he only seems to be gaining support. And then of course. The question is is people to judge. One of the things that I'm looking for for is the Joe Biden Factor Anderson and whether or not the The essent bad David described of AB closure is going to be so strong that it could put Joe Biden even below beneath her. And what if that happens what that will do for his fund raising and for the perception love him as somebody who could when later on in the states to top. Yeah does that affect his his alleged firewall in in South Carolina. We'll see Oranje you. You've been involved in New Hampshire politics for decades. Have you seen a primary like this. I mean such a wide field and obviously high stakes and sort of deep concern in the Democratic Party boarded personal. It's it's not just the wild wild field obviously. Donald trump has changed the landscape. So there's a an anger and a terror going into this choice that we've never experienced before I mean you may not have liked to George Bush. You may not have liked Ronald Reagan. You made out of like the Bob Dole but this is so different because everyone feels more on edge as a result and of course just the last week is sort of heightened everything from the chaos coming out of Iowa where we got no uh-huh guidance in fact what we also got was a lack of enthusiasm. We're being told that there's going to be this incredible turnout. Young people going to turn out and then the numbers were flat and then we didn't even get accurate numbers so put that out there. Take a look at the impeachment. Take a look at the state of the Union and then look at the choices we have and they're really two different paths the moderate path and the Progressive Path. But let me say something really important here Bernie Sanders in two thousand sixteen. Set The agenda for twenty twenty because every single candidate the date you're seeing whether it's moderate or progressive sound a lot like Bernie Sanders and one of the reasons while we're seeing Amy Klobuchar excited even though she can v. I think in Iowa Is that for the first time ever. I've never really thought that debates matter. Well let me tell you right now that. ABC debate really mattered because people really were so so undecided and they wanted to see someone who was consistent. Unflappable was able to take it because they're thinking who can take it to Donald Trump And what you saw on that stage especially for Amy Klobuchar was that she delivered that message. And more importantly than that she and Bernie have something in common. They've both been very consistent. They're very both unfloppable and the two of them do something very interesting. They see the electorate Bernie Sanders has a consistency with working folks. They know him they trust him. They know that if he gets elected he won't forget them. And then what was that last. Line with amy it was I see you. Do I see you and that is so important. I Know Barack Obama was about hope and change. But he didn't necessarily bring about the change for working folks and I think what they see an amy and what they see in Bernie from two different wings of the party is a message. That says I'm with you and I won't forget you. It's really interesting D.. David the the latest Quinnipiac polling. Which of course doesn't predict outcomes it helps to identify trends has sanders leading eating nationally? Sanders Leigh Nash. By these margin. If you're someone who thinks sanders is not the best candidate to win the nomination will New Hampshire be away of narrowing down the field. It's a good question and perhaps perhaps we will seattle that non sanders wing. The Biden boot. `Age if somebody is able to consolidate that that is not sort of split evenly or close to evenly among those three candidates then perhaps that person emerges right now as you he noted that National Quinnipiac poll showing sanders. The National Front runner now. It's one poll. Let's see others confirmed that. But but does New Hampshire consolidate the moderate inside consolidate behind one of those candidates. I don't know that that's clear in a lot of the pre-election Polling Anderson. It seems that is being a little more split but that is what each of them are actually banking on and by the way the reason that sanders is is out there in front now is because he has consolidated that looming Wing because Elizabeth. Warren has fallen back a little bit clearly. Sanders was able to pick up some of those voters so he's got that consolidated progressive side while that moderate side has been splitting. I don't know if we're going to get a definitive answer. Tomorrow in New Hampshire or not as to who is best positioned to try and stop op Bernie Sanders for that side of the party. That would like to stop on these. You Know Bloomberg obviously then is is in that grouping as well as third third spot in the Quinnipiac poll is not on the ballot in New Hampshire not even been on any ballad yet. It's sort of the unknown just again. We haven't seen to Tony's Ernie's point about we haven't seen something like this Hampshire. We haven't seen something like this nationwide with a person who has unlimited resources there are so so many unknowns and uncharted territory that that Mike Bloomberg is trying to to forge and obviously the first is the money that he's he's willing to spend is frankly unlimited funds and he's using them big time but also because He's not competing here in New Hampshire. He's not competing in in the early states. But it is competing in Super Tuesday which is basically it. I mean it is such a delegate rich state and it goes across it's the country In and touches so many different demographics and he is working that so hard. You know normally when we're right here right now. On the cusp of New Hampshire we would say and national poll doesn't necessarily matter because it matters more what happens in the state like this or Nevada or South Carolina Carolina but this election year. It could be different because there's such a delegate rich day on Super Tuesday in early March and because you have a a candidate who's really working that and you can't turn on the television anywhere. Look at your social media feed or go shopping online without a Michael Bloomberg add add popping up and that is appears to be at least in this all these fears to be getting something about money or Ernie earlier. Use the word terror to describe. What's in the minds hearts of of some voters? And it's a word you don't really hear a lot but I mean it's it's a really is I mean. Do you think I think that really Do you really see that level of terror. And I'm wondering what your sense is. What matters more New Hampshire right now? We're the candidates Santa specific issues or how best equipped they are to go toe-to-toe and defeat Donald Trump. Well I think what we have right now. Is the authoritarian in chief chief. Who's now arrived in on New Hampshire and I think the last week has just added to people's concern is now gone beyond fear? I think we begin to see that. This is a tiger burn leashed. He's kind of a tyrant he takes. Revenge and that means your choices so important but I want to say something I brought my technology with me. what you got with I always it was chaos because you couldn't get a accurate number..

"Mike podcast is about what it takes to get the nomination. Six episodes six timeless themes that separate the few winners from the many losers. The hope still lives and the dream Shell never die. So you want to be president with Chris Matthews and MSNBC podcast search. Now wherever you're listening and subscribe episode three available now as I mentioned earlier show. We are here in New Hampshire because in just five days democratic and independent voters here. We'll go to the polls else to pick their candidate for president. I should tell you though. We still do not have definitive results from Iowa. In fact just a few hours ago the Associated Press announced basically basically threw their hands up but they're unable to declare a winner in the caucus. We're GONNA have a little bit more about how they got to that decision. Later in the show we do have some polling harbor reflecting the fact act that Iowa has had on the minds of New Hampshire voters who all the huge say in this particularly because of the weirdness back in Iowa all the polling trends seem pretty clear in the last. Today's Joe Biden's loss is digital game but anyone who covered two thousand eight I was one of them knows that nothing in New Hampshire settled until the votes are counted remember. Hillary Clinton Britain was written off entirely shocked polling expectations and one that state even though pulling fever. Barack Obama our New Hampshire or to people who know the stay. Okay Well Ellen Nelson a former political reporter vox who previously covered the two thousand sixteen race for the Concord Monitor newspaper in Hampshire and Arnie Arnesen the host of a syndicated progressive. Talk Show called the attitude on age out of concord a former candidate for governor in New Hampshire and start with you. You know the state very well for for people that her evaluating the candidates here tell me what their presence has been lake specifically in the strongest Ground Games are obviously Bernie Elizabeth and mayor. Pete there's no question of the top three nine replicated absolutely and I wanted to disabuse about two thousand and eight. Hillary Clinton had been living in Hampshire. Since it's probably nineteen ninety-one so she had tremendous memory and connections here. Unlike what she had an Iowa those those are there was a stability built. Exactly exactly and what you have. The New Hampshire is is what Bernie Goetz is like Birdie. Memory we saw what happened Twenty Sixteen Against Hillary Clinton they have that voting memory for Barney. Arne which is an advantage for him he obviously produced in Iowa. He continued to be able to produce here. The other thing he also showed was while it wasn't a great turnout in Iowa. What you saw was young? People young people in Iowa from eighteen percent of the votes to twenty four. That is used cachet. That is what he's telling voters is I can expand the base. He did that had in Iowa and he also came in at the top. There is a sort of interesting one to one thing happening the tracking polling Buddha judge. The theory of Buddha Jisr. This racier was raise. A lot of money spent a ton of time and I would take advantage of the fact he could go there when other senators were not there on the trail and finish strong there and then sort of catapult into New Hampshire early tracking polls show that it has worked a little bit a little bit and obviously we thought today I mean I was in Bernie Sanders Manchester Office when he also declared victory after Buddha declared victory so it's not sort of maybe the clean note is definitely not clean slinky. No so and so. It's very very much I think at this point. I mean I've I've been talking to a lot of local politicos about what expectations are for these candidates. This week I mean I think for Sanders he no he. He had a historic finish in two thousand sixteen. Eighty one twenty two points. I mean that's something that we hadn't seen before it was it was massive. Obviously I think people aren't necessarily thinking that he's going to replicate that high of a number but people are looking to see whether he can win. People are looking to see if Buddha judge somebody from Indiana can beat sanders in his home turf. People I'm looking to see how Warren plays again. She's a neighboring state. Senator and Joe Biden former vice president. Well so to that point so when I asked you as someone who knows the state wellness political I on the ground. You did not mention the person who is leading national polling. The former vice president United States Joe Biden who came in fourth in Iowa. What is his his presence here? Like what are they I. I don't feel any presence for Joe Biden here. What we saw in twenty nine thousand nine was sort of a tepid response? Comfortable name familiarity. That has no meaning eating your Hampshire. The fact that you have a familiar name has no meaning in Iowa. Why because we have primary muscle we know to evaluate almost starting at the bottom so therefore a biden doesn't really come in with an advantage? Then he might in South Carolina the MINDEN Nevada or even on Super Tuesday we evaluate candidates here and in a way. What happened in Iowa just this reinforced? What I see in New Hampshire? He came in fourth in Iowa. I think those votes are going to go basically the Mayor Pete maybe a couple of amy and the and the and that's in some ways. The best estimate could ever happen to him. Well I should note right aside from the sort of muscles that are exercised by Iowans in New Hampshire folks. He's muscle they liked the muscles. And you're very proud of the first in the nation status but these are also very white states that who have a very different demographic composition than Democratic Party and a state like say California or so come throwing so someone out of Iowa just said. Let's remember that White Iowa picked a gay picked a black picked a Jew picked a woman. I mean let's remember when you look at what they did just because they're white bread that doesn't mean they don't WanNa have a refined sense of what will be electable and what is good for the country. That may be true. But all I'm saying is that as you as you evaluate New Hampshire and particularly. What's it's past that right like there's this question at this point about two things? What happens on Tuesday and wh who has built something that can keep going right because the calendars punishing punishing Nevada and then South Carolina and three days later Super Tuesday and the slingshot effect? I think we're seeing less of the kind of momentum affects that we may have seen another years. I mean I think Biden's I didn't campaign this is this is nothing from. They've said from the beginning that they think that they can weather. A loss in Iowa and New Hampshire with with Nevada with South Carolina with Super Tuesday. We are seeing the the real test of that now and I mean it was interesting for me because I was talking. I was Biden. Summers worth event. Yesterday he was much fiery fiery or version of himself than he had been in Iowa. Thank I was talking to some New Hampshire surrogates. That said you know he doesn't. He doesn't need to win here. And what does that mean for the status of the primary Harry and the momentum of the primary does that mean that New Hampshire. It doesn't really matter anymore. And of course they said no new Hampshire still matters but I think we are really seeing. This question talked about in a way that it wasn't wasn't in two thousand sixteen or or past year question whether New Hampshire and I it's just a losing is contagious and I think Biden's coming in in fourth. It doesn't it doesn't bode well for him. I think he comes in here. He doesn't have the organization. I don't know what's going to happen to South Carolina but why would you want damaged goods you want to defeat Donald trump. And you see you can't win in a state. That looks a lot. Joe Biden in a state like New Hampshire. Maybe I think in the end. It's not gonNA help him. He's putting everything into South Carolina and South Carolina is also smart because they know that in the end this is about electability and twenty twenty and obviously he's damn well they're a long way off and the way that momentum lamented tends to play out in tangible senses is both media attention and fundraising a proved to prove to be an issue L. A. Nelson and Arnie artisan thank you so much for being here. Ah just a reminder. We'll be hosting post-debate special tomorrow night at eleven PM. We'll be joined by New Hampshire voters who just watched the big debate as well as candidates from the spin room. Remember to tune in. It's still just what is happening in Iowa. The Democratic National Committee calls for recount.

"Has has a really good hold on everything coming out of her mouth. His experience is definitely a contrast with trump but I but I think the one thing that's really hard for his opponents to come after him on is is his greatest asset and that's like authenticity city has related attack that how do you knock that and. I think that's sort of that. Foundational Structure To his electability Elizabeth Warren has to go ahead finish this. I elect ability laugh at our conversation with defining this word what the Hell it's. It's a social construct. I mean that avalanche poll that was done. I felt was was was very smart. which was if you had to pick any candidate independent of the color of their skin their gender any of the societal perceived weaknesses who would you choose news and candidates like People Judge Elizabeth Warren Kamala Harris surpassed what they are pulling in reality you yeah there? Were there was more aspirational aspirations for them. Yeah that's exactly right and I do think the first time I ever saw Elizabeth Warren was actually in West Virginia. She was campaigning for the Secretary of State Eight candidate there in two thousand fourteen and I went in being like why is she campaigning here. This like there's GonNa be no one here. She is not a good fit and she really blew me away. In terms of of just how folksy and relatable authentic she was and you know for some reason she doesn't get the same Rep Joe Biden does well let me give you another definition of what of electability so the morning our editorial call. Somebody brought up the fact were debating. This Warren Biden issue and is like okay. Is it better for warners a better for Biden. Well who's is going to inspire more people to volunteer for the campaign and if that's your metric Elizabeth Warren is probably going to have more people ready to knock on doors than Joe Biden lighten just like Donald Trump had more people willing to show up at the doors further. RNC Then maybe Marco Rubio would have I or Jeb Bush yeah now. How do you factor that in under this definition of electability right like one helps you with a structual campaign effort to help you win an election shen but we don't define that is electability right right and I think she doesn't get that same definition she is that people don't put that term with her because of her potential to turn people off people in the middle and I can tell you from talking to a lot of Republican consultants. They are drooling to have her as the nominee right. They have a lot of what they want to go after her. That's exactly what they want and you can see it. In some of the stories that actually have been coming out recently by trump is a little bit afraid of war and they're starting to worry about warrant no no. I think they really want Warren Poker face. I don't think they're poker. I think there are some people in trump world that see her as a mirror image of him realize that she does speak to some parts of the disruption. I mean look the difference between and this to me is I I. I've said this Democrats. Don't agree on what happened in two thousand sixteen. Do they jacqueline right. There's a divide if you believe the election was stolen then. You're a biden person right. If you believe the reason trump won is because because Democrats were status quo and he was the disruptor then you're with warm or burning by the way we're not bringing up Bernie which is going to get fast secure all over all of us meaning are we too. It's funny that why doesn't Bernie get the same benefit of the doubt that warrant we're sitting here saying warns not getting the benefit of the doubt that ed by gets in the general entity how come Bernie doesn't get the same benefited out that Elizabeth Warns Getting Right now. We'll just anecdotally A lot. I revisited a lot of my sources when I was living in New Hampshire a lot of people who were burning right off the bat and had him in their house in two thousand fifteen when he was barely registering and they this has really stuck with me something that Arnie Arnesen tell me which was that Bernie paved the way for Elizabeth Warren Warren Radio names of all time rich is still have that great radio This is awesome that you saw tonight arnie Arnesen old old. It's just a nice memory that you yeah with. Actually I spent many a time a lot of time with Arnie with chronic in when we were living together but she yes she she phrase it as something that really resonated with me. Bernie opened the door for Elizabeth Warren and Elizabeth Warren Esq candidates and the whole idea of this sweeping structural change and progressives in general but now it's time for him to play the supporting act good luck with that you know he doesn't he likes fastest complaint is plenty plenty of people like knowledge what you just said. Jacqueline that Hey Bernie is the godfather of this movement without Bernie Open the door. We wouldn't be discussing a main proposals in the mainstream that are being discussed but they believe this should translate into so support. US dammit right like sort of like this one you know and it's like they're angry that they're that other progressives aren't with them we did this. Why aren't you giving us more credit. I kind of think they ought to be nicer and asking well. Maybe it's maybe it's electability but but that's my point he pulls better than she does right now against trump that's true that's true Jacqueline. What's your answer explain that I really don't understand it does Bernie poll better than I don't know I listen to. I honestly listen to El Chapo Trap House this morning on the way here her to better to better understand but I don't know but something that you actually had said about the call that you I had this morning about the the Biden. I wore match this is this really is something. I've been thinking about talking to just informally to a lot of staffers offers and people activists in general we've got involved in the campaign and a lot of them say that the big schism and resounding sounding difference that I hear between the two between those who are working are volunteering for Warren and those were working for Biden is that they are working for Biden because they believe that he can then went that he's going to be the nominee and they're working for Warren because they believe in her and they believe in what she's doing. It's really hard to work eighty hours. There's one hundred hours a week. If you don't fully believe in something now Biden does have the trump may may be the motivator for those folks that are willing to work on it hours eh but that is something. Biden his asking that is harder innocence but Biden also have the argument of look at North Carolina nine his his Elizabeth Warren losing that district by two points or she losing by ten and what does that mean for Congress and because even if Elizabeth Warren wins the presidency are Democrat picking up the Senate or are they winning the how are they. I I buy all this argument and then Jacqueline I think about the arguments that Jeb Bush made to me about trump electability and Marco Rubio made me about trump's electability right I mean I don't know you know I do fear. We're all trapped in previous election cycles. I look okay Joe. Biden Joe Biden looks like more like Al Gore John Kerry and Hillary Clinton which are the last three losing democratic nominees and he does Brock Obama Bill Clinton Jimmy Carter by the way all of us in political journalism our history junkies right. We're always in some ways. We're going to be trapped by precedent because we're not we don't. WanNa live in a totally chaotic bortles right. WanNa believe president is a guidepost of some form but I do worry too trapped in the past when trying to figure out trump up in the age of trump. We can't assume any previous conventional wisdom applies that's right and I think there are a lot of people out there. Including moderate Republicans who may be willing to support someone were surprised about and that includes Elizabeth Warren the polling is showing it includes Bernie Sanders and I happen happen to think Elizabeth Warren probably would have won in two thousand sixteen had she run she could've potentially toppled Hillary Clinton and she would have been the perfect merge of the two candidates yeah wait. This is really is what are you. Why do you think we talked about Warren more than sanders. I say it it's called new. Look we can return line and you hate to say that that is what their victim of their victim of. He doesn't have anything new to say. Nothing he does is surprising right. It is not man bites dog. It is continuing Bernie Sanders the same dog biting the same Manson's nineteen ninety the billionaires millionaires blessing but I think that's I mean and that's his complaint and fast. It's not wrong on that. We don't write about another plane landed safely national today right we right about what's new. We write about this so in that sense. I think Elizabeth Warren is new and Bernie Sanders looks like the same model of car from the previous year. Okay it's upgraded upgraded but what's new about it right it the I. I think that's your basic now actually think Bernie S- This campaign deserves some credit because I think two months ago they were on the verge of what felt like a collapse and I've righted their ship and I think we've not given credit the due credit for that yeah yeah but you know what it's not. It's not just how the press covers him. He's on he's on cable. TV He's answering the questions he wants to answer and voters presumably are paying attention inch and but maybe they don't like what they're hearing right. Isn't that possible you know the fascinating thing about Bernie and have you seen Jacqueline. I know you've notice is that the people paying the most attention in the Progressive World are picking Warren over burning but Bernie's support is strongest among people paying the least amount of attention right now so then the question I asked myself is he got a whole bunch of supporters that are just not yet engaged and once they get engaged. Watch out or are these people that were just Bernie was the non was the alternative to the establishment last time and they haven't woken up yet and as soon as they start to. Oh Ah Bernie's not the only brand I can pick but you know. I don't know the answer to that Jacqueline yes well. This feels weird to say because it's September twenty nineteen but it's still early anymore. If it's earlier late I we're only just getting to a a single debate tomorrow and that's and we may actually go backwards in October going back to we're going to be right with with sire and likely Tolsey and does America want to nature of the debates anymore..

"Now Dave Baker and home fix it show that would be me right you have a leaky roof you are not around anymore it's all patched up yeah now we're on your condition are you hot no I'm not I'm in your house are you hot yeah yeah I can see that we have we have the what we have what is called the geo thermal no way yeah and with a drill down and then it's always Israeli degrees yeah you can that's about the best to have I told you I live in new construction that's the evidence even odd for new construction yeah that is I've never heard of that anyway instruction in our town house with yes are it's great it's a great night the electricity bills are low it's it's awesome because half million dollars to put in but you correct costs about a hundred fifty thousand miles on it and your bill right our lectures in his two cents a month now I'm kidding anyway though it it's great you know you walk in it it's always kind of look at a control temperature that's what houses arts and the jungle star comment on my looks today I I rolled out of bed at like two o'clock in the morning to buy I didn't say a word about your looks I would not say a word about her looks look at her who did your hair today a robin I don't think the Chinese ninety five **** Hanson's if T. W. S. B. joining us in the studio right now Kimball rice is here good morning hello Campbell as going good how are you I'm all right he's with Cory heating and cooling that's what we're going to talk about today cooling probably phone lines are open at four oh four eight seven two zero seven fifty although I'm gonna ask you because I wrote down I have listeners now if they want to listen to my inane questions they can just listen or they can call and ask pertinent questions that are important to them and and the public one of my inane questions that I have written down and this is my second question and I'll read it to you in its entirety all right furnace sales question mark is this a good time of the year to buy a furnace never a bad time like a you know how owned winter coats go on sale after winners over and rebates there's always rebates rally yeah there's always rebates or some has special promotion going on usually this time of year here years running several deals so may I can't even remember what the all our special financing all that stuff but furnaces are year round piece of equipment on like air conditioners so there's there's never a bad time to look into buying the furnace okay so if you can just barely struggled race raised winter to its end with your old furnace this would be a good time to check into that maybe save some money or if you're struggling get out of the first orders all there so it's always a good time you also Roger your charming wife I already forgot Arnie Arnesen Kimball yes and that this wife Mickey Mickey there's a Mickey within them I should remember that don't talk out loud no you're fine to talk but it she is I'm not we had in here with the pretext but she was gonna read the weather right now this is one reason why they are so this is just gonna glare at me the entire day who do you do when you're out anyway for all four eight seven two zero seven fifty is a number if you have questions on keeping your house cool you should know by now if you're struggling with your air conditioner you should know if you have rooms that are getting cool you should know if your house is in getting cool you sit on your vents are blowing cold air if you don't know by now that you're having problems then you're not having problems or you're not paying attention somewhere to turning a blind eye to it yes you're just you just ignore your flat out sweating and ignoring for all four eight seven two zero seven fifty is a number that's going to Jeff in Norcross Jeff with an air conditioning question right out of the box what can we do for you Jeff okay well I wish only had one air conditioning problem finding one of my car into my house but let's start with the one in your house okay so my unit I grew in our right of certain doctors unit the upstairs unit some time your quick cooling and I went out last night and I don't think the compressor was running so I turned everything off I I read online to check the capacitor I checked that it would be thirty five micro it measured at thirty two I assume that was okay but you can tell me after letting it for an hour you know then I put everything back in and it cranked up in a party cooling again but this is the second time I've done it yeah it sounds like you're compressors actually over heating I'm assuming based on you doing some this yourself you probably don't have routine maintenance done through a contractor no all right so we need to do is make sure that outdoor unit is getting cleaned oils yep the outdoor coil need is your dad was a hose you can are you need to get in there and actually white from clean if it hasn't been done a while a good idea to get really get in there real good but you can you can only do it with a hose if you know what you're doing they sell the time pressures just over heating to give it a good cleaning the only other thing that could be is the bearings on the condenser better start to go bad the run for a few hours and then seize up is that the condenser fan or that in five that would be the fan okay Darlene was still spinning this is most likely your condenser coils just completely clogged up give it a good cleaning in your problem will probably go away okay I'm gonna go clean and good today kind of club donated by any kind of spray or anything to go in there just water if if you don't know what you're doing I would just stick with water otherwise you end up with some like massive chemical burns so just stick with what good all right all right thanks for the call Jeff you want to go buy something buy a six pack when you're done self at boarding the water you won't have the chemical burns but you'll be able to rest and relax accordingly for all four eight seven two zero seven fifty is a number he seemed to know what he was talking about when he mentioned thirty five micros something in thirty two is that an important number to the general public that's listening yeah that's actually the measurement for your capacity which is kinda like the easiest way to explain is like the car battery for your air conditioner okay it's going low things don't start is that a number that we can that we need to go out and only call into call racially Hey my capacitors only doing like compressors only doing thirty one no I wouldn't even advice trying to find out what your of my Kerr fares are on the capacitor it's just asking for electrical shock he did that because he knows what he's doing for you too but whatever okay four four eight seven two zero seven fifty is the number let's go to Eddie in Stockbridge ready here on home fix itself yes Sir your last week that is above the garage and I've got a three ton unit that is attempting to cool the up stairs and to follow nine hundred square foot room and there's I've got three returns are Carol once out of the ring and a spent all through the whole place and it this does not through their condition it puts out air coming out of it but it is not cooling that space you've got a system just call in the in lawsuits sweet by itself yes it's a nine hundred square feet so we got fifty degree co air coming out nothing that might be the biggest problem yeah I mean when you say not cool use it like keep it around seventy five or is it like ninety up there like he doesn't even there see there's an even running the action here well I think the best it doesn't like about eighty two okay so insulation can be a huge factor in that other thing I would look as to actually see what the air flow of the system is checked out at sometimes we people go with the more is better solution which isn't always the case so it sounds like you may have a slightly oversize system is pushing too much here if that's the case then there's maybe too fast were not getting good heat exchange I would have somebody come out take out make sure it's sized right and then make sure the actual speed of the blower or furnace is set correctly it sounds like you just moving too much here we're not having a chance to really absorb the heat into the system that's interesting and of course all that that's what that's why that's why we've got this for you and yet right can be just for you I've been in the house for like six seven years in so we actually have the unit replaced at one time and then there's just nothing seems to work I isolated the garage doors trying to keep it out of the out of the garage and nothing's working so anyway I'll I'll I'll get any HVAC guy can come out and check that check the flow of the yeah I need to check to make sure all the dock work Sir all the ductwork is intact and see with.

"Talk radio twelve ten. So I go on Fox News yesterday. I don't know why I do this either. I really don't know what I'm thinking. First of all, it's a giant pain in the neck because I got the middle of the day bridges puts the kid so down for a nap on Saint Patrick's Day as I go into the city, and and do all this, and I don't mind, but the guy who's the host there, obviously does not like me. Not one bit. And so he has I'm debating this woman named Arnie Arnson Arnie Arnesen and right before the interview starts Leland is in our ears. And he goes Ardy. My dad loves you. I gotta tell you. He loves you. He's always excited when you come on. I told them you're coming on. He's so excited to watch you so excited to watch. You can't wait. And then they start talking about how much she loves the mayor of southbound at thirty seven year old kid and goes, yeah. It's your favorite cabinet, right? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And then he just doesn't like. Hi, how you doing, you know? And now that tells me a lot right there about how the president went after him on Twitter on Sunday. I didn't ask him to you. By the way. I just wanted just for the record. I did not ask I did not call in a favor and say, can you go after this jerk on I didn't do that just for the record? But he did go after Leland bitter on Twitter on Sunday after I was on. I'm just pointing that out. I'm not I'm not making any connections. I'm just saying that the president went after Leland veterans, very loyal. That's so again, I probably coincidence. Dots probably quits it. Probably not probably just the giants coincidence. Not.

"What do you think Osma, but I will say didn't to that point. I do still think the label of democratic socialism is still is tricky label for Democrats. I was out with comma Harrah's yesterday in concord New Hampshire, and she was specifically asked about this saying the person who won here last cycle. Bernie Sanders is a democratic socialist. And she was asked if she needed to move more in that direction. And what I thought was so interesting about her responses. She said right off the bat. I will tell you. I am not a democratic socialist. But in America today, not everyone has an equal opportunity, and she sort of goes on to talk about economic inequality and disparities and whatnot. So it's not that the messaging isn't there? It's still that the label is something that not most of the other candidates are subscribing to let's get into this idea that, you know, a lot of these really pretty progressive policies that Sanders espoused and twenty sixteen are now very widely accepted on the democratic side that the Overton window has kind of widened because of him. I mean Medicare for all is heavily embraced by a lot of these candidates, fifteen dollars minimum wage paid leave so awesome. You've been out there on the trail is Bernie Sanders is twenty sixteen coalition of voters is at fracturing. Are they going to other candidates is he does he still stand out? I mean, you could make the argument that he is somewhat of a victim of his own success. This time to your very point because. So many of the other candidates running the cycle. Do his spouse similar if not identical positions some of these really key public policy issues and any look I don't know that I will say I can say with confidence how much of his coalition will stay together. What I will say is it is pretty unanimous when you talk to voters up in New Hampshire, and we should point out. New Hampshire's the state that really put Bernie Sanders on the map during the two thousand sixteen cycle. Right. He he clobbered Hillary Clinton, and and so he he did just so well, and it's not hard to find former Bernie Sanders supporters in New Hampshire, and when I ask people I often been asking me to who did you support in sixteen and why a lot of those people are not necessarily with him him now. And I don't know that they see that. He's the only one who the only progressive option there was there was one woman. I want to tell you about in particular, I met her name is Arnie Arnesen. She's a radio show host. She of considers herself Sanders ideological twin because she says she sees so. So much of herself in terms of his own progressive, visions, but she told me flat out shoot hut that he could play a more important role in twenty twenty by staying out of the race for president in two thousand sixteen. He was unexpectedly popular he did quite well in the primaries. But he was also to some voters quite divisive. He there was a pretty hard rift in the Democratic Party between his supporters and some Clinton supporters. And so, you know, some complaints that for example, he could have done more to rain in the so-called Bernie broS who were saying some sexist things online, and that sort of thing. So I'm wondering does he face any do you guys? See him facing any leftover bitterness any sort of a hangover from 2016 or does he mostly just benefit from his from his success in two thousand sixteen while I think that there are some things that viewed through twenty nineteen lens and the way Sanders talks about whether it's misogyny or race. Then you know, it doesn't necessarily strike some in the activist base as being the most sensitive. I mean in talking about. The idea that there were people online who are harassing women who were part of his support network and his answer for that has essentially been I was running for president. You know, you can't expect me to know everything about that. And that kind of flip flip ins is not something that I think this base really wants to hear about in that same way, I will say that. I think that he is still somebody who because of his name ID because of how strongly he ran in two thousand sixteen he's going to be a top contender for this nomination..

"From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Mary Louise Kelley, and I'm Ari Shapiro today. The department of education closes public comment on proposed new rules for handling college campus, sexual assault cases. The comments are coming in so fast. The website is having trouble keeping up over the past two months. More than one hundred thousand comments have been logged secretary, Betsy DeVos says the rule changes. She's asking for we'll make the process more fair to the accused joining us to talk about this is NPR's. Tovia smith. I told you. Hi, ari. Okay. So it sounds like there's a last minute rush to get comments in. What are people saying? Yes, the pace has really been picking up all week. So the website has been slow people are getting error messages. And now advocates are already calling for an extension of the deadline. There's no word yet on that. But meantime, the comments keep coming in. They range really from long legal analysis to very personal and emotional stories from both sides, some are thanking device for beefing up protection. For the accused and others are expressing a lot of anger and anxiety, some writing really intimate descriptions of traumatic assault and telling device that these regulations will really make it harder for students to feel safe and for victims to get help. Can you tell whether a majority of the comments are leaning one way or the other? Well, we don't have an official count. But it seems pretty clear that those in opposition outnumber those in support at least online, and that has a lot to do with. How activists have been mobilizing? Their people survivors advocates especially have been running these big campaigns on social media and hosting a comment writing events, especially on college campuses. I understand you went to one of those events. Tell us about it. Yeah. I went to Boston University where students got kind of a crash course in how to use a template that activists made sort of a mad lib style kind of thing to make submitting comments easier, and these students were writing about several things for example, how the proposed rules would essentially let schools off the hook from having to automatically investigate certain cases. Like if an assault happens in an off campus apartment, or if a student tells a coach about an assault instead of a one of a few designated officials. Another issue is how device wants to narrow the definition of sexual harassment. So that the only cases that would count would be those that are so severe they deny a student access to school activities and one student. I spoke to their Julia Mollard called that shocking. Like if you're at the point where you need to drop out of class or stopped going to class. I mean, you already have to take a hit to your education before they can do something about it. I mean, it's off. That it has to reach that point to be taken seriously. Tovia are you seeing the same kind of mobilization on the other side from people who support these proposed changes, I on a much smaller scale, I spoke with Cynthia Garrett who heads a group called face that represents accused students and their families. She says the new rules would make the system more fair by for example, allowing schools to demand more evidence of misconduct before a student can be punished and by guaranteeing that accused students would be able to at least indirectly cross examined their accuser. So Garrett has been encouraging comments mostly from those who say that they were victims of a biased system somebody that's expelled or suspended suffers greatly. I mean, they are suicidal. So now officials we'll have comments like that one and many many many more to read through presumably some combination of humans and machines will do the job. Then officials have to respond. Bond explaining their reasoning for what they will or won't change. And this could take many months even more with litigation expected to challenge these regulations. So it may be quite a while before any of these new rules take effect NPR's. Tovia smith. Thank you. Thanks sorry. Bernie Sanders is looking at running for president again in the Vermont Senator hasn't yet said what he plans to do back in two thousand sixteen. He created a powerful progressive movement in thin primary field now, though, many Democrats are adopting his positions on issues such as health care and the minimum wage, which means progressive voters have a lot more choices. As NPR's reports Bernie Sanders first decisive victory in two thousand sixteen came in the New Hampshire primary he crushed Hillary Clinton by more than twenty points, even before he had an office on the ground. Elizabeth rob was making homemade signs for Sanders. Bernie inspired me because as somebody who's live. Lived without health insurance for most of my adult life. I want there to be a single payer healthcare system. Rap is part of Sanders. New Hampshire steering committee that still occasionally meets. I do wanna see Bernie run again in twenty twenty. We do need bernita run. Even if the field is crowded sure, she is intrigued by a few other candidates, for example, she likes how Elizabeth Warren is critical of Wall Street, but she's not sure she can forgive Warren for remaining neutral in the two thousand sixteen primary between Clinton and Sanders. There is no doubt. Sanders has changed the Democratic Party. Why we are all here together in this country. We're going to have a minimum wage, which is a living wage. Fifteen bucks an hour. Earlier this month twins Andrews, reintroduced a Bill to raise the minimum wage. Every democrat in the Senate considering a run for president cosponsored that legislation. He has made it legitimate to talk about things and a lot of us. The mumble Arnie Arnesen is a radio show host and former New Hampshire politician who considers herself Sanders ideological twin? She's grateful that he ran in twenty sixteen because she says he helped expose some of the rot in her own party. But twenty twenty is not two thousand sixteen and my question is does he provide edit value in this campaign for twenty twenty or there are a lot of people that are sort of carry very similar messages even somewhat similar styles that could take that message and move it forward. Sanders has helped craft the democratic platform, but Arnesen wonders whether he's the right candidate to take that message into the White House. Does it have to be him? I don't think it does. And I admire. I admire him to pieces Arniston is excited by many of the candidates considering a run for the presidency. She thinks they all carry elements of Sandra's message. But she's also looking for something new. I think that it's time for us to start creating a new bench and the new bench is an old. It should be white. It probably shouldn't be now assumes Andrew supporters also say the environment has changed since two thousand sixteen. Sure, they want someone they agree with on policy. But Bill Stelling who runs an art gallery. Manchester wants something else. We're looking for somebody right now who can stand up to the nasty nasty campaign. That are idiot in chief the president is going to run in twenty twenty Stelling is not convinced Sanders is the right person for that job. He's impressed with California. Senator Kamala Harris, he thinks she's fearless. And he's intrigued by. O'rourke from Texas this week. He's going to draft Beddoe house party. He wanted to spread the word. So he posted about it on Facebook. I immediately got some snarky comments from progressives. Starring is frustrated by what he sees as infighting and stubbornness among some of his fellow progressives. You know, it's so counterproductive, but loyal Sanders. Supporters. Insist Sanders is pushing everyone else left, and they worry that if Sanders himself does not join the twenty twenty race other candidates will eventually moderate their messages us Muhammed NPR news..

So Garrett has been encouraging comments mostly from those who say that they were victims of a biased system somebody that's expelled or suspended suffers greatly. I mean, they are. Suicidal? So now officials we'll have comments like that one and many many many more to read through presumably some combination of humans and machines will do the job. Then officials have to respond explaining their reasoning for what they will or won't change. And this could take many months even more with litigation expected to challenge these regulations. So it may be quite a while before any of these new rules take effect NPR's. Tovia smith. Thank you. Thanks. Bernie Sanders is looking at running for president again. The Vermont Senator hasn't yet said what he plans to do back in two thousand sixteen. He created a powerful progressive movement in thin primary field now, though, many Democrats are adopting his positions on issues such as health care and the minimum wage, which means progressive voters have a lot more choices as NPR's asthma. Holiday reports Bernie Sanders first decisive victory in two thousand sixteen came in the New Hampshire primary he crushed Hillary Clinton by more than twenty points, even before he had an office on the ground. Elizabeth rob was making homemade signs for Sanders. Bernie inspired me because as somebody who's lived without health insurance for most of my adult life. I want there to be a single payer healthcare system. Rap is part of Sanders. New Hampshire steering committee that still occasionally meets. I do wanna see Bernie run again in twenty twenty. We do need bernita run. Even if the field is crowded sure, she is. Intrigued by a few other candidates, for example, she likes how Elizabeth Warren is critical of Wall Street, but she's not sure she can forgive warring for remaining neutral in the two thousand sixteen primary between Clinton and Sanders. There is no doubt. Sanders has changed the Democratic Party. Why we are all here together in this country. We're gonna have the minimum wage, which is a living wage. Fifteen bucks an hour. Earlier this month Wednesay Andrews, reintroduced a Bill to raise the minimum wage every democrat in the Senate considering a run for president cosponsored that legislation. He has made it legitimate to talk about things a lot of us. Use the mumble Arnie Arnesen is a radio show host and former New Hampshire politician who considers herself Sanders ideological twin? She's grateful that he ran in two thousand sixteen because she says he helped expose some of the rot in her own party. But twenty twenty is not two thousand sixteen and my question is does he provide edit value in this campaign for twenty twenty or there are a lot of people that are sort of carriage, very similar messages, even somewhat similar styles that could take that message and move it forward. Sanders has helped craft the democratic platform, but Arniston wonders whether he's the right candidate to take that message into the White House. Does it have to be him? I don't think it does. And I admire. I admire him to pieces Arniston is excited by many of the candidates considering a run for the presidency. She thinks they all carry elements of Sandra's message. But she's also looking for something new. I think that it's time for us to start creating a new bench and the bench is an old. It should be white. It probably shouldn't be. Now. Some zander's supporters also say the environment has changed since two thousand sixteen. Sure, they want someone they agree with on policy. But Bill Stelling who runs an art gallery in Manchester wants something else. We're looking for somebody right now who can stand up to the nasty nasty campaign. That are idiot in chief the president is going to run in twenty twenty Stelling is not convinced Sanders is the right person for that job. He's impressed with California. Senator Kamala Harris, he thinks she's fearless. And he's intrigued by. O'rourke from Texas this week. He's going to draft Beddoe house party wanted to spread the word. So he posted about it on Facebook. You know, I immediately got some snarky comments from progressives Stelling is frustrated by what he sees as infighting and stubbornness among some of his fellow progressives. You know, it's so counterproductive, but loyal Sanders. Supporters. Insist Sanders is pushing everyone else left, and they worry that if Sanders himself does not join the twenty twenty race other candidates will eventually moderate their messages us hollered NPR news..

"And so when it comes to this idea of the government shutdown. The Democrats are expected to unveil legislation to keep it open. They won't offer any new money for the president's wall. Do you think that's a good strategy or should Democrats offer something, well, let me let me just say something right now, here's what I think is the frustration. You think you're negotiating with Donald Trump? And that's basically a fiction you were really negotiating with Laura Ingram. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the rest of the boys and girls at Fox News. That's the problem. There is no person sitting there named Donald Trump who's going to tell you what the answer is about the wall. There is no saving face for Donald Trump. Donald Trump will be able to tell you when he wanted to go. She ate with the Democrats win. The Fox News w GOP or whatever you wanna call. It gives him permission. That's part of the problem when you had Pelosi. There isn't a negotiating person on the other side of the table. So what is she supposed to do? I think she's going to basically so to stay. The course. This isn't about a wall. This is about who's pulling Donald Trump strength and the problem for Donald Trump is he has to get permission from them. And that's something that Nancy Pelosi can't basically can't abide by Arnie Arnesen. You said you've started off talking about New Hampshire tells a little bit about the activity. What do you expect particularly this year? We heard about Elizabeth Warren. But what else are you seeing? And what do you expect to see in this year? Well, I mean, obviously, we're going to be seeing a lot of what's going on with the presidential campaigns, which unfortunately is also going to sort of have a maybe not necessarily a positive effect on what happens with state legislation because to to a large extent, the presidential political to the sucks the energy out of politics, except here's the good news. I think we're gonna see things like this. We're gonna see putting a minimum wage Bill on the table. What you need to know about New Hampshire. We don't even have a New Hampshire. Minimum wage that means that the feds ever got rid of a minimum wage, we wouldn't have them. So that means we're still at seven twenty five all the surrounding states have not only their own minimum wage. They're raising it Massachusetts just raised it starting. I believe today. So I think you're gonna see conversations about minimum wage, you're gonna see conversations for example, about legalizing marijuana all the states around us have done it where so sort of, you know, living in the dark ages a lot of these conversations. However, well, also sort of I think parallel what's happening on the presidential campaign. So to a large. If we're talking about bringing the bottom up the minimum wage conversations there the whole idea about legalizing marijuana is not just state issue. Frankly, the fans have to sort of step into this. So I think you're gonna see those kinds of things begin to happen. And I think that that's important. And let's also be honest here. Climate change is real let me repeat this everyone. Climate change is real it is costing us billions and billions of dollars. I think my state is going to begin to look at how they need to begin to operate to address climate change that is going to be a huge issue nationally. And then last, but not least I am pessimistic about the economy. The rest of the world is beginning to see I was significant softening in a recession. We're not an island. We are really part of that sort of international conversation. You saw what happened with Wall Street? I think we're due for a recession. The problem is we have an enormous deficit, which means you can't turn to the feds when there's a recession so states you're going to have to prepare for that. And they're going to have to make. The right investments and make sure that their economies can sort of hold together. I think that's another conversation that will be having as he watched. What's happening with the economy? Talking people follow your show. They can go to W and H M dot org. My show is called the attitude with Arnie Arnesen, we stream live from twelve to one every day, we podcast, and if you want to know, what's happening nationally internationally, and especially at the presidential level. We will be absolutely keeping cats and everyone from data to come to bite into my next door. Neighbor Bernie Sanders. This is Arnie artists and joining us for our conversation. One of many opinion is we'll have on during the course of the morning happy new year to you and thanks for coming on new year. Oh, it's a pleasure. Happy new year. Everyone joining us from North Carolina. Mitch Koci of the Carolina journal. He is their senior political analyst good morning to you. Welcome and happy new year. Good morning and happy new year to you. I hope it's going to be a great plenty nineteen. That is is this a sense of optimism that you feel then perennially at optimist. I'm also the sort of a realist as well to know that we're ever going to get everything that we want. But I think if you look at the where things are headed there, certainly plenty of things to talk about the DeLuca polarization right here in North Carolina. We're still still dealing with the fact that we don't know who our whole complement of members of congress because of a fight in the ninth congressional district. But despite that, I always look ahead with it with a sense of optimism at the beginning of the New Year's because at the beginning of the year. You haven't seen all the stuff that would make you a pessimist yet? So if you had guideposts to point you to your way about this optimism that you might feel what would you look at? Well, I think the thing that you have to look at is that the United States if we're looking at the national picture is still a one of the dominant countries our economy has been rolling along fairly. Well, now, of course, with the the tariffs that President Trump supports that's been something that's been a hindrance of economic growth, but largely were still in pretty good shape. Although we have had troops fighting overseas in the Middle East for the large part. We have been spared for decades and decades from World War. The economy is still growing developing countries are still a growing by leaps and bounds. So in large respects, if you look at the world in twenty nineteen compared to the world say forty fifty sixty years ago, you have to say in almost every measure United States and the world are doing better. And I think that will continue even though there's still going to be some challenges. We're going to have to deal with a lot of problems, including the increased political polarization, which I. I think everyone sees as big problem. How do you factor? The current thing that we're talking about in Washington, the shutdown and to your sense of optimism. How does it really make an impact for those folks who live there in North Carolina the people that you talking associate with? At this point. We don't really see a whole lot of discussion about it on a whole lot of impact. And I think largely that's because this shutdowns partial shutdown took place near the end of a calendar year people are shutting things down. Anyway, they're shutting down the work for the year, not really dealing a whole lot with the government. I think if the or to see some major impacts from the shutdown it's probably going to take back now moving forward after day when everyone starts get back to work, and they noticed that some of the things that we dealt with the federal government. We're not seeing these open, but I think so far most people dealing with the holidays visiting grandma and grandpa, and for the kids dealing with that now once we launched to the new year people will start to see an impact if any from the checkout now, I think one of the things that people who like to use the shutdown as a way to to try to get people moving together to try to get some sort. Deals. One thing that could be a downside for them is that if the shutdown continues and people really don't see a major impact on their lives. Then the shutdown loses a lot of its value as a scare tactic and people will say, wait a minute. If we don't we could live our lives, just as we are without these government agencies operating at full staff and a full power. Do we really need off his government agencies? So there is that danger that if people continue to live their lives, and they don't see a major impact on the shutdown. They might say why do we just stuff anyway in DC, Mr. Koci this time of year? There's always stories about new laws and regulations that go into a place across the nation. What's the picture there in North Carolina? And what do you think about you after you're all these layers of new laws being put into place? Well, I think someone suggested one time that we might be better off if every new law had to come along with a repeal of two previous laws, and that might be something. Good in North Carolina. We've seeks some interesting new laws are some election changes. We'd also see and you've probably heard this on the national level. One of our one of our do laws has gotten a lot of publicity is this one that would ban those who sell non dairy milk from calling milk. And so several other states in the in the US go along with that same measure than the people are so soya milk or almond milk. When be able to call it not anymore. You look at that. You say do you really need a law for that? This is the type of thing that probably people could figure out on their own. We at the at the John Locke foundation and a Carolina journal up at supportive of trying to keep government in it in its limited spot where does the things that he needs to do any lead people to run their lives the way that they would like to otherwise. So when you see a bunch of laws come into place that can always create a problem. Our big story here, of course, in North Carolina, dealing with the national picture is what happens at our ninth congressional district. This is something where the congress is coming back as you very well now, you're just a couple of days, and we are going to have a nice district congressman because our state board elections, which now no longer exists that board of elections refused to certify the results in the night special district. One thing that we do know is that the comeback from the last session of congress. Robert pittenger is not coming back. He lost a primer. Mary election any just announced within the last couple of days, if there is a brand new election with a brand new primary care in North Carolina. He's not going to be he's not going to try to get his seat back. So we do know the one thing we know about district is no Robert pittenger. But there's still quite a bit of interest and concern about who is going to be. I the Reverend Mark Harris who was the Republican unseated picture, you know, primary appear to have one on election day by about nine hundred dotes over a democrat new damage creepy, but there's still a lot of uncertainty about what's happening because of some irregularities involving absentee ballots in the eastern part of that district. And as I said, we don't have right now in election sports, and there's a fight between our governor and our general assembly about whether the governor could set up a temporary elections for the Republicans who are lead, the general assembly say go you can't do that. You don't have the power to do it. The new brand new election sports by law checks. At the end of January. So what happens between now? And then is uncertain. We know that some leaders the new leadership in the house of representatives in in DC as said, it's not interested in seeing the Reverend Mark Harris says the new congressman because of all of the sensor, and that in terms of political stories is probably the main thing we're watching your right now. North Carolina, hyper locally vary in North Carolina. You have a democratic governor ROY Cooper has two years left in his term. How would you? How would you? I guess bracket that the first two years, and particularly what faces them in these next two years. The first two years were very tough ROY Cooper because Republicans held veto proof supermajority in both our state house and Senate. So basically, they would go along with governor. If it was something they already wanted to do if you put forward a proposal at that..

"Where's that from in your life from high school? And I just Wayne we'll know I just talked to my old wrestling coach Ron excel a couple of days ago. I always signed books for him, and we get together. And I've seen some of the wrestling team over the years. I'm Wayne was on that team. That's a blast from the past. And that's awesome. You played football. What else what other sports are yours? Those those are the two that I did in high school. I Russell some in college too. I play I played a lot of tennis over my life. And I played since I was a kid. I I play with my son now, but I just I'm too old to keep up with him. You know, he's twenty two and hit the ball million miles an hour. And so I think he tolerates that at this point. You know, he doesn't hit it hard as he can to. So he can keep me in a game. They have the Washington DC next. Welcome christine. You're on the air. Hi. How are you? Hi, I was gonna ask you it doesn't sound like you get stuck a lot with your plot. Because you have say. You don't get gravy for a long time. Well, I think the last four years I've been writing what I thought should be a memoir, and I get too personal places. And I got one I can't I can't put it on paper and having a really hard time with made better because I did not read before I do better. If I made it less personal if I if I did not write as a memoir. No, absolutely. Thank thing writers need to be flexible. Now, if you really want to write a memoir on your rifle perspective, you can do that. And you might be able to work through. I get writer's block. I called writers a number. It's just a part of the writing process where you're still thinking about what you wanna do. And how do you get through that? Well, you just work on every day. You think about it? Are you go off and do something else and let your subconscious work on it for a little while until you figure it out and keep moving forward. But if you if you really can't get past this because you don't want to delve down into how personal is for you. Then be flexible enough to move on. And maybe you're right in this is a novel and to write fiction, and then you can make up stuff and get through the personal account that might have been a little traumatic for you. And they move on. And continue the story. Joanne is up next Bridgeport, Connecticut, just a couple minutes left with David. Go ahead. Please. Hello. Thank you. I just wanted to let you know that I love your books, but I'm more partial to the series because I love the recurring characters ninety facets of the characters, and it was just wondering if when you come up with the premise for a plot for one of your series. Does it ever happen that you feel that it's better suited to a different one of your series? That's a great question. And that has happened to me. So I thought a plot sometimes, and I thought okay, this is going to be John polar or will Roby. And I realized that I dealt a little bit deeper into the plot. I can tweak it a little bit and make it into an Amos decker kind of story. So that has definitely happened today. But the fact that I have so many series going I can be a little bit interchangeable on that. And if I took the story a little bit I might go off in a totally different direction and use another series care for the do it. I think we'll Roe v is the only one of your characters we haven't talked about. So who is he we'll Roby is probably America's most lethal assassin other than Jessica real who might be even more lethal than he is. And we first met him. I'm in the innocent. He goes around the country. He's the guy that he's a regime change guy. He's the guy that cuts the head of the snake off and doing war on the cheap. So he gives around the world and kills them by this country. And you would think that how can I create a series of other guy whose job it is to murder people and that was challenges. Right. I had to make him relatable in some way. And I took great pains to do that. So. Yeah, the action sequences where you show him doing what he does with great professionalism. Great precision in great tenacity, overcoming odds along the way because oftentimes against a lot of other people. And then showing the human side of him pal is a guy you pull the trigger. Do you think it's not gonna affect you pull the trigger it affects you, and you had to carry that baggage with you all the time, and it affects who you are and what kind of life you can lead. And yes, he can be very aloof and very much of a loner, and he can't relate to other people big surprise. You know, most people don't go round pulling the trigger and killing people, but he has to do that. So he's a fascinating character. And I I've yet to touch the surface this guy. Our last caller is Virginia from glass, fort Pennsylvania hybrid any Hello. I love jerk camel club series. Thank you. And. I couldn't wait for the next book to come out. Why did you kill them off? I mean, couldn't you stopped for a while. And brought them back later. Yeah. Well, if you if you're talking about Oliver Stone stone cold at the end of that book when he goes off the cliff you think, oh, it's all it's done for him. Now, he came he came back and he lives in two more books, divine Justice and helps corner. So if you stopped it's stone cold, you have two more books. But at the end of hell's corner other than Milton everybody else was alive. I can always bring them back. John car this far fiction why he's alive and kicking. And I would love to bring the chemical back. And if I can think of really co plot to put them in. I will bring them back so far my final question. You're fifty seven years old. You've got a lot of writing life ahead of you. But you've already got huge body of work. What would you like your legacy to be as American writer? I want to sort of be the guy that you know. It'd be hard to put me in a box. You know, it'd be hard to label maze. What kind of writer? I was put me as a mystery writer or thriller writer, but I've written fantasy written. Personal histories. I've written dramatic family stories as well. So I would like to be the kinda guy that when you open the book, you never know what you're going to get with him. And if you if you look at the word formula in the dictionary, you will never see a picture of me next door. Thank you. I spending three hours with TV audience. Thank you. I enjoyed it. This is she's been radio programming from Tuesday. This morning on the Washington journal. We talked with several radio hosts around the country about optimism and pessimism for the new year. Joining us first off the Skype Arnie Arnesen from New Hampshire. She's a syndicated talk show host of U N N H A. Sorry, W and H. Good morning. Thanks for joining us today. Well, you know, I live in concord New Hampshire happy new year everyone. And of course, things started off at the Bank just yesterday. I was on the air and just before I go on the air. Elizabeth Warren announces she's starting at exploratory to run for president. Of course, you're talking in New Hampshire, which meant that the conversation. I was supposed to have about looking back with a conversation about looking forward because we are the first in the nation primary, and she'll be spending a lot of time here, and they'll be a conga line of candidates showing up. But she was smart. It was a slow news day. So she announced is that a source of optimism Ben heard declaring this exploratory committee. So you don't you know, what I am. I'm a Muslim. I'm on both sides of the optimism pessimism line. I look at last year twenty eighteen as like riding a bucking Bronco. I mean, it was just unbelievable. But what was so exciting about that bucking Bronco, which the blue Sonoma that we saw happen to the twenty eighteen election. I mean, you have a hundred new members of congress that are. Non incumbents kind of Pete that a hundred non-combat show many women. Oh my God. They're going to have to add new bathrooms. I'm just amazed. And the average age was under the age of fifty. So when I saw was a lot of people were frustrated and frightened and concerned, and in despair to some extent, but rather than should've going under a rock and hiding they decided to run, and you saw a lot of new people that even the Democratic Party could not recognize. And I think that was what we still exciting about what we saw happen in November with a new faces, and so many women and such diversity. I mean when you elect h a gay congresswoman from Kansas. What does that tell you? When you see the first black congresswoman from Massachusetts. What does that tell you and just to give you an idea of the flavor in my state, the Republicans had controlled everything in twenty eighteen until the election. The Democrats took back the house they took back the Senate. They took the executive council. The governor. Managed to stay. The course. But this is I think apocryphal in the first congressional district. It was a race between an openly gay democrat and a black Republican and the openly gay democrat one. But think about this folks, a black Republican an openly gay democrat the face of America. Do you think by virtue of those editions for the house? Do you think the house will that become more progressive, particularly amongst Democrats and legislation? That's passed. I think it'd become more real. I mean, let's remember we know have women with children, we have young people. We don't have people who you know, they they didn't come with a portfolio. They came with a life and their life wasn't about politics. Their life was struggling to get healthcare. Their life was being in the military. Their life was being you know. Popsy, you know, a Muslim in America where you know, there is so much of racism, and there's so much anti semitism. So they bring their life experience to the table is that progression. No, I think you call that America. And I think there's been sort of the disengagement with this level of incumbent after incumbent after incumbent getting reelected, and now you've got people who don't have that backpack of incumbency. Instead they have that backpack of life if that's progressive. Well, then so be it. But I do think what it is is that it's going to demand change because we have to change we have an enormous debt. We have climate change. We have student that we have an economy that softening we have a man in office right now named Donald Trump who doesn't believe in democracy, and whose best friends or basically, you know, autocrats and despot. So I think that in a lot of ways their voices are more needed. And I'm not sure you have to label it Progressive Conservative. I think what you have to label. It is. We need to change we need to change. Now represent Nancy Pelosi will once again gain the gavel as she becomes house speaker. What should she do this time around that she didn't do last time? Well, let me just share something about Nancy Pelosi. So, you know for the last eight years she's been out of office. But she's been demonized by the Republicans and two hundred extent what's been so successful is they kind of demonize holy ship. Even with the Democratic Party. What I think is so exciting about DNC Pelosi getting the speakership is that she is sort of reacquainting herself with the Democrats and reacquainting herself with the country, and she is showing that she is able to be a sophisticated leader that she understands the new faces that have showed up that she's willing to play in the sandbox with them. She's also willing at least to say that she's only going to serve maybe another two or four years. Of course, you'll be eighty two by that time. So maybe she should retire. But I think she's also showing that the Democratic Party not only values new, but they value experience and skills, and what Nancy Pelosi is bringing to the table issues bringing that experience and skills and part of that skill sets is to learn to work with not fight the new voices. But. I work with the new voices because they're going to energize the base, and they will make a difference in twenty twenty..

It is we need to change and we need to change. Now, representing Nancy Pelosi will once again gain the gavel as she becomes house speaker. What should she do this time around that she didn't do last time? Well, let me just share something about Nancy Pelosi. So, you know for the last eight years she's been out of office. But she's been demonized by the Republicans and two large extent what's been so successful is they've kind of demonize relationship, even with the Democratic Party. What I think is so exciting Pelosi getting the speakership is that she is sort of reacquainting herself with the Democrats and reacquainting herself. With the country. And she is showing that she is able to be a sophisticated leader that she understands the new faces that have showed up that she's willing to play in the sandbox with them. She's also willing at least to say that she's only going to serve maybe another two or four years. Of course, you'll be eighty two by that time. So maybe she should retire. But I think she's also showing that the Democratic Party not only values new, but they value experience and skills, and what Nancy Pelosi is bringing to the table. She's bringing that experience and skills and part of that skill set is to learn to work with not fight the new voices, but work with the new voices because they're going to energize the base, and they will make a difference in twenty twenty. And so when it comes to this idea of the government shutdown. The Democrats are expected to unveil legislation to keep it open. They won't offer any new money for the president's wall. Do you think that's a good strategy or should Democrats offer something, well, let me let me just say something right now, here's what I think is the frustration. You. Think you're negotiating with Donald Trump. And that's basically a fiction you were really negotiating with Laura Ingram. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the rest of the boys and girls at Fox News. That's the problem. There is no person sitting there named Donald Trump who's gonna tell you what the answer is about the wall. There is no saving face for Donald Trump. Donald Trump will be able to tell you when he wanted to go. She ate with the Democrats win. The Fox News w GOP or whatever you wanna call. It gives him permission. That's part of the problem for Nancy Pelosi. There isn't a negotiating person on the other side of the table. So what is she supposed to do? I think she's going to basically so to stay. The course this isn't about a wall. This is about who's pulling Donald Trump strings and the problem for Donald Trump is he has to get permission from them. And that's something that Nancy Pelosi can't basically can't abide by Arnie Arnesen. You said you started off talking about New Hampshire. Tell us a little bit about the activity. What do you expect particularly this year? We heard about Elizabeth Warren. But what else are you seeing what do you expect to see in this year? Well, I mean, obviously, we're going to be seeing a lot of what's going on with the presidential campaign, which unfortunately is also going to sort of have a maybe not necessarily a positive effect on what happens with state legislation because to to a large extent, the presidential political scene to suck Z energy out of politics, except here's the good news. I think we're going to see things like this. We're gonna see putting a minimum wage Bill on the table. What you need to know about New Hampshire. We don't even have a New Hampshire. Minimum wage that means that the feds ever got rid of a minimum wage, we wouldn't have them. So that means we're still at seven twenty five all the surrounding states have not only their own minimum wage. They're raising it Massachusetts raised it starting. I believe today. So I think you're gonna see conversations about minimum wage you're gonna see conversations for example about legalizing marijuana all the states around us have done. We're sort of you know, living in the dark ages. A lot of these conversations, however will also sort of I think parallel what's happening on the presidential campaign. Situa large. Extent if we're talking about bringing the bottom up the minimum wage conversation. Is there the whole idea about legalizing marijuana is not just a state issue? Frankly, the feds have to sort of step into this. So I think you're going to see those kinds of things begin to happen. And I think that that's important. And let's also be honest here. Climate change is real let me repeat this everyone. Climate change is real it is costing us billions and billions of dollars. I think my state is going to begin to look at how they need to begin to operate to address climate change that is going to be a huge issue nationally and then last, but not least I am pessimistic about the economy. The rest of the world is beginning to see significant softening in a recession. We are not an island. We are really part of that sort of international conversation. You saw what happened with Wall Street? I think we're due for a recession. The problem is we have an enormous deficit, which means you can turn to the feds when there's a recession so states are going to have to prepare for that. And they're going to have to make. The right investments and make sure that their economies 'cause sort of hold together. I think that's another conversation that will be having as you watch. What's happening with the economy? Talking people follow your show. They can go to W NHL FM dot org. The nape of my show is called the attitude with Arnie Arnesen, we stream live from twelve to one every day, we podcast, and if you want to know, what's happening nationally internationally, and especially at the presidential level. We will be absolutely keeping cats and everyone from Dato Kamala to bite into my next door. Neighbor Bernie Sanders, this is Arnie artisan. Joining us for our conversation. One of many opinion is we'll have on during the course of the morning happy new year to you and thanks for coming on new year. Oh, it's a pleasure. Happy new year. Everyone joining us from North Carolina. Mitch Koci of the Carolina journal. He is their senior political analysts good morning to you. Welcome and happy new year. Good morning and happy new year to you. I hope it's going to be a great twenty nine hundred is this a sense of optimism that you feel then. Perennially at optimist. I'm also the sort of a realist as well to know that we're not ever going to get everything that we want. But I think if you look at the where things are headed there, certainly plenty of bad news to talk about the political polarization right here in North Carolina. We're stealing still dealing with the fact that we don't know who are full complement of members of congress are going to be because of a fight in the ninth congressional districts. But despite that, I always look ahead with a with a sense of optimism at the beginning of the new year because of the beginning of the year, you haven't seen all the stuff that would make you a pessimist yet. So if you had guideposts point you to your way about this optimism that you might feel what would you look at? Well, I think the thing that you have to look at is that the United States we're looking at the national picture is still a one of the dominant countries are Konami has been rolling along fairly. Well, now, of course with the tariffs that President Trump supports that's been something that's been a hindrance of economic growth, but largely were still in pretty good shape. Although we have had troops fighting overseas in the Middle East for the large part. We have been spared for decades and decades from World War. The economy is still growing developing countries are still growing by leaps and bounds. So in large respects, if you look at the world in two thousand nineteen compared to the world say forty fifty sixty years ago, you have to say in almost every measure United States and the world are doing better. And I think that will continue even though there's still going to be subject. We're going to have to deal with a lot of problems, including the increased political polarization, which I. I think everyone sees as big problem. How do you factor? The current thing that we're talking about in Washington, this shutdown in to your sense of optimism. How does it really make an impact for those folks who live there North Carolina the people that you talking associate with? At this point..
