"Already back on the campaign trail. Despite my coronavirus, diagnosis and all the mini strokes before that rely Fact, Hillary was a crusty establishment centrist with no platform. I'm that, but we're cool sunglasses at every facial ligament removed. One thing I really curious about is how easy or hard it is. It is it for you to slip in and out of these voices that you do Well, some voices are more difficult to switch the another voices because your vocal placement Is so different. I mean, if I'm doing say, like, uh, you know, like Fred Flintstone. Alright, Barney arms for working at that gravel pit with Mr Slate. Oh, you said it, Fred. I'm right behind you. Those are difficult because they're very different vocal placements. And then, of course, there is such a different emotional context that the character has so typically when we record we generally stay in one character because there's so much That you have to consider when voicing a particular character. Yes, that's interesting to me. I mean, because I would imagine just from a pragmatic standpoint, it wears on your vocal cords to have to switch back and forth. Or is that just a figment of my imagination? No, it does, especially with animated characters. But even with characters like if I'm doing Robert De Niro or Morgan Freeman. They all present different, different complexities because you have to, You know, I have to lower my register if I'm doing one voice opposed to another, So it's a very It's a very different thing. And then you have to get in such a different headspace to do all the characters. So at this point you have. I think I've read 170 voices. Yeah, Something like that, You know, Cut back Almost a couple of 100. Maybe. Wow. You know, it's hard to remember them all. But I mean, I'll refresh myself. You know, like, for example, I'll do research on a particular voice and I'll watch movies. I'll listen to interviews and then something will hit me. Like I remember watching interviews with Alan Alda and he was talking about a film that he was in with Leonardo DiCaprio called The Aviator and I just remember, he said something in the interview. That's so resonated with me. So I I think of that, and there's a muscle memory. And and and the line is I I looked into the eye to lead under DiCaprio and I saw this soul of Howard Hughes. And why does that linger with you so much? I it she's some al it. It just seems to define his cheerful of bullion matter. There's something about that. That just makes me laugh. And so it just kind of pushed me. There's there's other characters that I can almost say anything at any time in their voice, you know, like, say, Robert DeNiro. I mean, I've watched a lot of De Niro films and interviews and you know like I Can I look, It's very, very simple, Kim All right, everyone has to wear their mask. It's not a big deal. Not that all right? It's not a big deal. Don't be a wise guy. Do you understand what I'm saying? Do you hear me? Do you hear me? Very, very simple. Now, let's talk about how you got started in this. You are doing this. These, like mimic re. Basically, I guess as a little kid, and you're you know, I think, Gather you. You entertained your folks, and I don't think you were necessarily thinking of it in that, and in your youth is this is a career, but you had a meeting with, uh, the you know, very, very iconic Mel Blank for that changed everything. But just walk me through a little bit. How you thought about it before during after that meeting? I mean, you obviously sought him out for a reason. Well, I mean, I never really had the idea the design that I was going to have a career in animation. I don't think that ever occurred to me. I thought maybe I'll do stand up. I'll try my hand at that. I didn't even think about radio as the possibilities. I just was kind of mucking around just imitating voices and not really having any kind of direction of where that was going to go, and then Mel Blank was appearing at the University of Pittsburgh, giving a performance lecturer. Just happened to find out that he was staying on the campus hotel and I found out what Rumi was in. Why I did it. What? Maybe do it. I don't know, because I was a bugs Bunny fan like anyone else, but Something compelled me to knock on his door at 10 o'clock at night. I'm trying to imagine this guy and he opens the door and there's like, I think you were like, Are you still a teenage boy at that point? Was 20. So it's 40 years ago, 1981 and I knocked on the door and I was my chest was pounding and I heard a voice. The kind of sounded like Barney Rubble and Sylvester all put together and the and the voice was Just a jiffy. And I went. Oh my God, That's the jet. I'd whole man and so we open up the door and he was so diminutive in stature he was wearing like a like a red cordovan robe, I think And and he just said to me, Are you Jewish or Italian? And I thought, Well, I'm Jewish, He said. Okay. Come on in. So I mean to think that that could ever happen today with, you know, with what we all deal with insecurity and what our comfort zones are. Yeah, the day it would be a heart attack. Ryan facility opens the door for you. You know, good for somebody like that, But, uh, different era and he just was a nice guy, right? I mean, I did. I did announce myself in a sense, and I said I was at your performance lecture at University of Pittsburgh and I am A genuine, enormous fan of yours if I could just have just a couple of minutes of your time, and so we sat on those two uncomfortable beds facing each other kind of, like father and son. And I did a few voices for him. And he was the one that those those are pretty good. You know, you got to keep at it and get your degree. Yeah, he did Encourage you to get the degree. I think you weren't necessarily so sure you wanted to write. Oh, I was clearly not an academic. Yeah, There was no way that I wanted to go in that route. But But, yeah, I think after the hide it really just a few months after that, I really started to dig in and develop, um, my vocal range and my ear and started to work on a lot of different characters and And then it was just full steam after that,.

"A new legacy starred LeBron James, of course, but his co star Bugs Bunny, That was prolific boy factor. Jeff Bergman. He takes us through some of the challenges of his often overlooked profession. I mean, if I'm doing say, like, uh, You know, like Fred Flintstone. Alright, Barney Arms through working at that gravel pit with Mr Slate. Oh, you said it, Fred. I'm right behind you. Those are difficult because they're very different vocal placements along with Bugs Bunny Bergman also performed Sylvester the Cat, Yosemite, Sam and Yogi Bear in the latest Space jam movie, and those are just a few of the nearly 200 voices in his repertoire. Bergman shares how a fateful meeting with the legendary Mel Blank launched him on a career voicing scores of animated characters. But first my band three bodies fill in while I'm on break. Stick around. It's the business from KCRW. Matt Belloni filling in for Kim this week, and my banter buddy is Lucas Shaw, Entertainment reporter for Bloomberg. Lucas. So this was supposed to be the time of year when the movies were back. Everybody thought that the virus would be under control. It was going to be the hot back summer and studios lined up these big movies for July, August, September, October, November, Now we're in the middle of the Delta variant surge. Lot of people are still very hesitant to go back to movies. A lot of these July and August movies have opened to about half what they were expected to in the pre pandemic times. And it really just feels like one after another. These movies are walking the plank. They are being put out there. The audience isn't there, and the studios don't quite know what to do. Yeah, they're in an almost impossible situation because they're being asked to project what's going to happen with virus cases. Which is something that not even the expert epidemiologists in the U. S government have been able to do at times and so you have to make a decision on a lot of these movies, you know, 468 weeks out before you start your marketing campaign and a lot of the cases, these movies have been delayed once twice three times before. And so studios that have streaming services are in a little bit better position because maybe they're going to release it in both places, but especially those that don't are having to decide whether they want to go ahead and risk making, you know, 40 50% of what they thought they were or whether they push it again with an uncertain time as to when they're going to release it. And even then, they you know they have to incur extra costs because they're going to have to market it again. Yeah, that's the strange situation here is that you know, there's a reason why a lot of these movies were not immediately sold off to streaming or put on the streaming services is that the studios believed that they could do a number at the box office and become profitable and now they're in this situation where it looks like this lingering Virus is going to prevent that from happening. So you're in this situation where, Okay, You push it again and incur all these different costs, And there is a bit of a feeling that there is diminishing returns on some of these films. If there's a feeling that it's been sitting around for so long, or you sell it off to streaming, and we saw that with Sony what they did with Hotel Transylvania four, which is a kids movie and kids, obviously right now are not vaccinated, so they felt that it was the best thing to do there. They sold it to Amazon. Or you try to just go headstrong into this juggernaut and figure out a scenario that might at least you know, get you to the best case for right now, And we're seeing that with the James Bond movie no time to die, which has been delayed several times. It's the You know the big $250 Million plus action film that for a variety of reasons. First of all, the broccoli family, which produces it did not want to go to streaming with it. And secondly, they feel that they need to get that the Theatrical money in order to justify the cost of that movie, and from everything I've been told they are going forward with that release date, and they're trying to do their best to figure out which market has reached the peak, which one might be surging at the time, and it's just it's It's got to be infuriating for these distribution executives. Yeah, I mean to your point. Lot of the movies that are on the calendar in the next few months, or those that were deemed sort of too big to sell or to test with, you know, Paramount sold almost all of its movies last year, but it held on to a quiet place to which it released earlier this year, and what was at the right time to still do well and then it held on to top gun Maverick, which is supposed to come out in November. You know, they thought that that was going to be their biggest movie of the year. Now we have no idea of what to expect for that time. I mean, I feel like the some of the big movies to watch you talked about bond. You know that That's going to keep an eye on internals, which is the You know, a Marvel movie that's supposed to come out in November. Will Disney try to end up releasing it on Disney? Plus as they've they've done with mixed results with some of their movies so far, and then I do think top gun because both Disney And Paramount have sister streaming services where if the company wanted to try to to fuck around with that they could, although I don't see Tom Cruise signing off on on that ever know Tom Cruise is a big factor here, because he's been willing to wait for this movie to come out in theaters, and Paramount was really, I think justified in its decision to hold a quiet place to because, as you said, it did come out in that right window, where it was able to get to a certain number in box office, And then it went to Paramount Plus After a short window and they got the boost there. But, you know, I'm sure Paramount Plus executives look at top gun two and say, Listen, this would be huge for us, You know? Can you throw this over to us, But so far they haven't been willing to do that. And I just think it's a It's a sign of the times that no one is really able to predict. I mean, we're seeing this also in this situation with vaccine mandates. I mean a lot of states in the US and especially in countries overseas. Like France. They've instituted vaccine mandates or negative test requirements for venues, whether it's movie theatres or concert venues, and I talked to people about whether this is expected to help or hurt attendance, and the consensus I've heard is that people are thinking that it will probably hurt. Attendance in the short term, you know when you're opening a big movie, or when you have a an all audience concert venue or specific genres that tend to attract certain crowds that might be adverse to the vaccine. It's going to hurt attendance in the short term, but in the long term, it may actually help people get vaccinated in greater numbers, which will ultimately help attendance. I mean, what are you hearing about this in the music world? Yeah, The music business is very divided. Right now, you've seen the the biggest promoters. Both live nation and egg have said that they will mandate vaccines or negative tests that all of their events. And then a lot of those decisions still come down to individual acts, smaller venues and what they are willing to provide. You know. Garth Brooks cancelled his tour for the rest of the year. Nine inch Nails has canceled some of its tour. But then you have a lot of these big festivals. You know whether it's bottle rock in Napa Valley or Lollapalooza. It already happened. A lot of big festivals are still going to go ahead because there's so many people whose livelihood depends on this whether it's crew members. The acts themselves and the promoters independent venues. There's there's a lot of people involved in some of these live music. Yeah, I was set to go to jazz fest in New Orleans in early October. And they canceled it because the caseload there in Louisiana is just terrible. And you know, the vaccination level is so low and when I called to cancel my hotel, the guy there was just so dejected and everybody was canceling. And, you know, there is a residual effect of all these cancellations on these businesses in and around both the concert venues and to a certain extent in the movie theaters. I mean there. Study put out by NATO. The theater owners this past week said that $5 billion in spending is associated with people who go to movies..

"This week on the business Space Jam. A new legacy starred LeBron James, of course, but his co star Bugs Bunny that was prolific voice actor Jeff Bergman. Bergman takes us through some of the challenges of this often overlooked profession If I'm doing Fred Flintstone Alright, Barney arms from working at that gravel pit with Mr Slate. Oh, you said it, Fred. I'm right behind you. Those are difficult because they're very different Vocal placement. Many voices of Jeff Bergman. Next time on the business. This is press play. I'm Madeleine brand live concerts are back for the most part, but they don't really look like the shows of pre covid. Your entertainment companies like Live nation and egg have announced they will be requiring vaccines or negative test results to attend their concerts. Will be checked like IEDs. Here in L. A mask. Mandates are also back for both indoor and large outdoor events. But if the venues aren't making big enough changes, some artists are taking safety precautions upon themselves Acts like Foo fighters, the killer's maroon five and more all say they will require the audience to either be vaccinated or show a negative test result. Same thing for country artist Jason is bell. We're not giving people healthcare or food or shelter were trying to entertain folks. So I'm not saying anybody has to get a vaccine or a negative test. But if you don't, then you don't get to come to the show. And he recently canceled Mississippi concert because the venue would not comply. We're gonna talk about the new way to tour now, with three tour managers Riley Vasquez, Conor, Teamster and Kendall being welcome to the program, Everyone Hey, Hey, Hey. Okay. I want to talk to each of you about your tours and what you're planning for and experiencing, and Kendall let's begin with you year, wrapping up a quick tour with a four piece bluegrass band. Tell us about them and how the tour went so, Yeah, it's actually our day off. We have one more show tomorrow. We're on a double bus tour opening. Um, for John Hiatt. I have four guys in my band. Um, And it's been a nice quick trip so far, um, great shows nice venues. Yes, it's gone. Okay, So what kind of precautions are you taking all things considered? Yeah. So as far as precautions, we, um we're wearing masks. Um, we kind of check in with everyone. Every morning. I have hand sanitizer everywhere. I have masked everywhere. I have rapid test on my bus. I have vitamins for everyone to take in the morning. And Kind of out there. Discretion. Um So do you test every day? No, we don't test unless we're since we're, um uh, majority vaccinated or all they vaccinated. We are not testing every day now. Okay. And Connor, you're in the planning process for your first tour. In what? Nearly two years? Tell us about that. Yes, yes, tour managing my first tour in two years. I was selling merch previously for Allan Stone when Covid actually hit halfway through our tour, But I'm Gearing up as tour manager and merchandiser for the band Mannequin Pussy from Philadelphia, and we're currently in the advancing process right now, playing a lot of email tag amongst my part time covid jobs at a music venue in a record store, so it's been Kind of hectic on my end, but, yeah, we're we're doing our best to just, you know, make sure everybody is going to be safe and vaccinated. I believe every band member and every crew member of all Three of the bands on our tour are going to be vaccinated, which is very nice. Um and we're just going to be, you know, working hand in hand with each venue in each city about You know what they're doing to keep everything a day and keep everybody safe. So we're just gonna try to meet them halfway and figure out the best option for everybody. And these are mostly indoor clubs, right? They are entirely indoor clubs safer. One festival in Boise. Okay, So is that anxiety causing at all? Uh, a little a little bit in theory, Uh, Like I said, one of the jobs I got during Covid was actually out of music venue and it is one of the venues that we are playing on our tour. And the fact that I've seen both sides now it's an attendee and as an employee since the show's return to union transfer in Philadelphia, it's It's nice to know that most of these venues we're going to our requiring masks. And covid vaccination proof or proof of the negative test within 48 or 72 hours, depending on the city like you mentioned previously about Jason Isabel, like we're not afraid to. You know, have to take the public health into account when it comes to our shows in certain cities and mandates and stuff like that, But obviously, you know it is up to the city's discretion. Whether we can require Vaccination or the negative testing thing, but, uh are are band has been outspoken about you know how well that process has worked because they just came out of the tour with Japanese breakfast for about three weeks. And just about every show required that and everybody was fine. It was it was an ideal set up in a really good process. And, Yeah, we're just trying to keep it wholesome in the punk community. It's really It's really hard these days. Yeah, I can imagine. Um Riley, you our tour manager for something called a worship tour. What is that? And what kind of venues are you playing? So it is three Christian artists who make music for the church. And that is a genre that has kind of become a little bit larger over the last few years. Amazing people incredible people out on the road and we are playing sheds and B and C markets right now, so we are a tour of nine buses and three trucks..

Yeah, well, I I start guy who owned the network that were first on We just call Barney arms because he had super hands like this. Not one. But the I've got a camera over. There was a reason I was going there a camera. I was going there trying to get credit here. For what? For getting us on TV. I told you to be a team. All right? Yeah. Now 110 Million TV homes nationwide. Yeah, we heard that 135 shot. Hey, listen, one of the greatest parts about this radio program and television program. Fact you'd be listening to us in Dallas, Texas, you're driving on the road in Washington is in New York City here on your couch eyes that we could e mails from listeners and viewers every day asking us about if we'll interview a certain celebrity or an author or a CEO of a public company, and we got an email from from a listener or a view, I think was a TV viewer out of out of Miami. Asking about gravity to Sam Rubin. I and I thought, Well, what does Stan Rubino Sam is the president and CEO of becoming a lightpath Technologies? They're a publicly traded company. They trade under the stock symbol l P T. H. You gonna light path? Calm, But we got one of our producers are executive producer Greg totter off to reach out to these guys. And guess what? We got the CEO of a public company on the area, Sam. Great to have you along, sir. How are you? Great. Thanks for having me and just to be clear. I'm not them The celebrity category right under the CEO part. No, you wait. You wait till after the show, Mr. Yes. They'll be clearing the streets for you. You're going viral. I'm counting on it. Hey, Sam, talk to us about so obviously, But when people found out you were coming here with us, we got off flight email. Talk to us about life path. What do you guys do over there? Yeah. The light bulb has invented many years ago. A technology to pick for mass production off glass lens for use in technical applications. And over the years over the time as optics on different that has found many applications to be used. The market for this has grown quite a bit. And today we're world leader in providing such lens. Is that going to many, many applications that many places All the way from telecom equipment through cameras through thermal image ng contact List temperature measurement really example. All these cameras we see everywhere now taking temperature measurements from people, you know, really optical cameras using infrared light. Their mission from our body to calculate what the temperature is. Let me ask you about that, because that that is called sensory and contact lists imaging right there. Technology. That's you guys at the tip of the spear. They're basically what it comes down to is. You guys are creating the lenses that allow us to even use our iPhone or my heart rate monitor. Watch to basically use the lens to determine what my body temperature is and everything else is that accurate? Right. What's the body temperature is measuring the oxygen pulse rate. You know, the applications are almost endless for some of those technologists and the temperature measurement is definitely one of the you know, I think one of the things we're most proud of in the company right now, because Using our technology. One congealed in el temperature measurement devices like that, where the lenses or maybe $10.20 dollars for the whole device instead of it used to be $200 so You know, if Cove it would have happened 10 years ago. I'm not quite sure how temperature would be measured on how all of this would play out. So say, I'm talking about that. Because that obviously that's front and center. Kobe is, you know we're living in a covert environment. Would you happen to be in the business? I mean, look as as grotesque as it sounds. This is an opportunity for a company like yours, but look it, it's also necessary. It's necessary for health care professionals is necessary. For the rest of us to kind of figure out where red How is it been for you guys operating in code of it as a company? First of all, have you guys survived? How's the workforce? Bennett and second of all, what's been the adaptability with you guys that based on what you're doing, and obviously the new frontiers, you guys air, creating Yeah, differently. I mean, like every company, our first and highest concern. What's fair way employees and making sure that there's a healthy and safe of possible So we took every precaution. We can just like every company, right, sir. Terms off, distancing, working from home separation between shifts and so on, and such as worked perfectly well for us and Which would everyone is safe from the healthy from the demand point of view. We definitely saw a spike in demand that the beginning due to these lenses for temperature measurement, that sort of coincided exactly. With the growth in demand in another application, we have off optical communication and the deployment of five G networks around the world, so it sort of became our perfect storm in terms of demand. And we were capacity constraints for quite a while, Sam. It's also isn't it Also true that the Internet of things has never been more important than right now, right? Yeah, exactly. And everything is getting connected, and everyone wants to hire spanned words to what they for every device and for every screaming S o. You know, that really put a big strain on companies like revising and such that you heard about that the beginning in terms of switching to work from home. One thing it watch Netflix. Maybe while you're working, hopefully not. You know, and all the bandwidth that was later on that exactly, Yeah, I'm feeding my dog right now and just started. What would he be willing if he would be replying to you? I am a question just as a as a Johnny lunch bucket. Guy that looks that, cos you guys are basically a manufacturing facility. Yeah. I mean, you're obviously innovators. You're obviously you know, in the end from inception to fruition, bring it to market but manufacturing in the middle of co but had to have been challenging. Can you talk a little bit about that? Because it makes me start thinking about car manufacturers and thermometer manufacturers and e everything talk about that. Yeah, I know, you know. First of all I have to say our staff has stepped up from the very beginning to deliver as much as we can on everything we can, especially once we understood. The role our lenses play and all the contact list temperature measurement devices, So we switched working three shifts in every location. We could well operation in China. Came back to work in the middle off that whole storm in China, where companies the country would still shut down. We were asked to come back to work earlier. In Orlando people while there was a stay at home, we're coming back to work. We're working full full shifts 67 days a week, really stepping up to delivers many lenses as we can to all of this, So let's not really well I'm gonna rip your fast because part of this thing and that manufacturing Is what you have done and doing diligence on you before you came on there. You guys have really adopted vertical integration. Rusty tell us with vertical in creation, And that means when you lay down and you try this slide.

And second of all, what's been the adaptability with you guys was based on what you're doing, And obviously the new frontiers you guys were created. Yeah, definitely. I mean, like every company, our first on DH highest concerned with our employees and making sure that they're healthy and safe and possible. So we took every precaution. We can just like every company, right, sir. Terms ofthe distancing, working from home separation between shifts and so on. And and that has worked perfectly well past Saand. Such would everyone is safe from the healthy from the demand point of view, we definitely soy spike and demand that the beginning due to these lenses for temperature measurement, that sort of coincided exactly with the growth and demand in another application. We have off optical communication and the deployment of five G. That works around the world. So it's a little became our perfect storm in terms of demand, and we were capacity constraints for quite a while, Sam. It's also isn't it Also true that the Internet of things has never been more important than right now, right? Yeah, yeah, exactly. And everything is getting connected, and everyone wants the highest bandwidth to what they for every device and screaming. So you know, they really put a big strain on companies like revising and such that you heard about the beginning in terms of switching to work from home wanting to watch Netflix. Maybe while you're working, hopefully not. You know, and all the bad witch that was needed. Exactly. Yeah, I'm feeding my dog right now. And just what would be willing if he would be replying to you? I have a question just as a as a Johnny lunch bucket guy that looks at companies. You guys are basically a manufacturing facility. You're obviously innovators. You're obviously end end from inception of fruition bring it to market. But manufacturing in the middle of covert had to have been challenging. Can you talk a little bit about that? Because it makes me start thinking about car manufacturers and thermometer Manufacturers nickel every mean everything to talk about that part. Yeah, And I will, you know, First of all I have to say our staff has stepped up from the very beginning to deliver as much as we can on everything we can. Especially once we understood the role our lenses play in all the contact list temperature measurement devices, So we switched working three shifts in every location. We could How well probation in China came back to work in the middle ofthe that whole storm in China, where companies that country would still shut down. We were asked to come backto work earlier. In Orlando. People with the stay at home. We're coming backto work. We're working full, full shift 67 days a week, really stepping up to delivered many lenses. We can't do all of this so fast because part of this thing and that manufacturing Is what you have done in doing diligence on you before you came on there. You guys have really adopted vertical integration. Rusty. Tell us with vertical integration. That means when you lay down and you try to slide your sleeping bag that no does not..

"That the day that would do anything to avoid getting into a full scale war the United States and none of it makes any sense ended in a drunken stupor the problem is in the system the problem now for three years which is basically that you know the the standard media approach has always been to treat a president as if he's serious and obviously that's been the right approach until now and they can't really come up with another approach another way of doing that when Donald Trump says that because you know they have to report X. basically and then when Donald Trump says why they just report why and they act as if trump were a normal president I just think it's not so much of a conspiracy or anything like that it's just that this is how all reporters you don't have to learn to do reporting forever particularly on the government yo you you'll give one side you give the other side and you treat the mall is that they're serious we've got a president where you approved doesn't matter there's nothing serious in what he does and says and you can't actually know what's going on but the media is just constitutionally incapable of talking about it that way and so yes I think ultimately the Democrats you know particularly once there's an actual nominee are going to have to figure out how to take that point to the people and how to keep reinforcing who prompt is and they're not going to convince you know the the the people who are hardcore trump supporters no matter what but there's a there's a middle out there that I think can be convinced Sir so obviously the other issues there's an impeachment going on yes I love to talk about the only bit in terms of Iowa and who's the target is the person who is the head of the falls right and now Bernie's ahead in the polls back in what was in the November all of a sudden Pete but the judge was ahead of the girls and they piled on against him in a subsequent debate about the wind cave eccentric so you expect they'll be I'm going after Barney arm yeah I expect Bernie he will have somewhat of the target it makes sense although to be fair the polling has is not consistent so the the des Moines register CNN Iowa poll came out with Bernie on top of the all within the margin of error of of Warren booted judge Biden but then the Monmouth poll it think it was came out and put Biden on top with followed by Bernie so you know the fact is the for front runners are bunched together it is anybody's game to win right now were to lose the mistakes in the debate are are quite serious from that perspective I do think however Bernie is the the the major target at this point but it remains to be seen how directly people will go after him on the stump the the the more moderates which are basically good at judging Biden no they don't name Bernie or they don't name Elizabeth by name but they do differentiate the issue positions especially birdies Medicare for all so I would expect to see that and I would expect to see it even even stronger tonight but given that the four of them the four leaders are all pretty much close together in terms of their numbers in there is an expectation that that will be the case throughout this primary season are you among those who expect the Democrats to show up at the convention in Milwaukee with no clear winner with everybody around the fifteen percent threshold I don't know that I expect that yet every cycle it seems we talk about an upcoming contested convention and so far it hasn't happened even as the Bernie fought to the bitter end and and Hillary in a bomb of thought to the bitter end it's a little more likely this time because there are four front runners rather than two and if you split the vote for ways it's awfully hard for anybody to get a majority but it's also a team of winning actual delegates and to do that you've got to meet the fifteen percent threshold either at the congressional district or state level and in a lot of the states right now the Iowa pre New Hampshire the weather is polling you only wanted to the candidates actually breaks that threshold so I think Iowa New Hampshire gonna help settle a bit about whether it's still four candidates going forward or whether it windows may be to three but even so the chances of a contested convention do seem higher than they've seen it in recent years Sir with Andrea Yang having missed the threshold for this debate Cory Booker just giving out you're going to the club wish debate viewing party yeah I heard dips and chips are of a higher quality I hope so I'm gonna be hungry at that time today so sad but eve got the star on the stage you I I just think is an empty suit I cannot believe that somebody could say flagrantly try to buy the presidency with so little to say with except a bunch of hollow platitudes but you know welcome to our money driven culture yeah but is there any likelihood of anybody else I mean and you know if you got this for you got two guys Bernie and Joan that'll could only seven one one term I think realistically speaking up then you go Elizabeth who's number much younger not that much younger but you know but still yeah a lot of men in this country not like smart women and she's obviously very much and then you got bit Pete who's apparently putting out ads and I were attending the fact that he's a veteran buddies he would also be the first gay president in the United States and that itself was a a pretty high mountain to climb so you think that we're stuck with these four oh could anybody else come out of somewhere and I guess that's what manner of Bloomberg strategy is right well that certainly Bloomberg strategies basically to skip the first four and tried to buy the support that he needs to win delegates during super Tuesday historically that's not been a winning strategy but historically people haven't had killed hundreds of millions of dollars to spend on the ad so we'll see what happens there but I think realistically you know Amy Klobuchar could surprise injury Yang could surprise and I say that in the context of not winning but you know managing some one of the top four down to third it perfectly in Iowa because this is done across sixteen hundred and eighty some odd precincts where you are viable or not in individual precincts so it's very possible with the floor all roughly around twenty percent state wide all of them have places where they don't have support a nothing to get local delegates club which are might be able to pop in here and there you know she doesn't have to win she doesn't even have to do that well she just has to kind of do a lot better than the six percent polling shows and then the media will talk about the Andrew Yang thing is it is it is more interesting in a sense to me only because last night I was at a rally he held here in des Moines AT Drake University and there were probably six hundred people there the room was absolutely jammed I was completely shocked at the size of the crowd and you know I don't know if these were committed Yang people Yang gainers as they say or people who are simply curious and taking advantage of the opportunity but it was by far the biggest crowd I've seen for him you know does it turn into votes I have absolutely no idea right now but it's also something worth looking at so well just in closing there is of course a lot of criticism of the field now being all white and and in fact and we hang is made that criticism of course the Republican Party is visit is uniformly and irrevocably all white so it's a bit of a double standard accusing the Democrats of being a white man's body but they do obviously have a lot of minority voters which they count on so what do you think about the vice president's sweepstakes in other words one day be a pressure to put somebody on the ticket they could attract minorities like maybe who in Castro or camel Harris what do you think about the V. P. balancing the ticket sweepstakes well there's certainly a long history of picking DP candidates the balance one way or another often geographically I think it's it's absolutely the case that there will be massive pressure for a non white VP candidate and if the nominee of somebody like burning the or Joe Biden the pressure will be not just for a non white VP candidates but for a woman as well so I think that that's how the Democrats will end up addressing the need to appeal to non white voters that that make up a huge part of the party base it is interesting that we've we've come to this ever been deal quite a number of you'll non white candidates running this time who were absolutely plausible viable candidates but it really isn't Iowa or New Hampshire's fault per se both of those states of course are very white but these Canada's also didn't catch on in South Carolina sixty percent African American in the democratic primary or in Nevada and so it's not so clear why this has happened the way it happened but there's no doubt that it will lead to pressure no matter which of the remaining canisters of the nominee to make sure the ticket as diversified whenever red loss guy thank you very much for joining us here you're welcome you enjoy that lark wise and then enjoy the chips and dips and again I mean speaking with that David read lost his a professor and chair of the problem of political science and international license the university of Delaware is currently a visiting professor at the university of Iowa he is the co author of why Iowa have core consistency question elections improve the presidential nominating process and his latest book is the positive case for negative campaigning we take every station break and we're back assessing whether the moderators of tonight's debate we'll try to make sparks fly with friction between Sanders and.

United States president
