The Battle Over Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Supreme Court Seat
"Coming from the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Let's turn to our political expert from S. M u Cal Jillson to figure out how it impacts both of the presidential campaigns. Good morning, Cal. Good morning. How are you guys? Good. Let's start with President Trump. Obviously, he's trying to nominate someone this weekend. The Senate is ready to confirm. Do you think it happens before the election? It's going to be very tight. There are number of steps that have to be taken for a nomination actually to be up for a vote in the Senate, so it could happen. If it does, it will mean that things have have moved pretty smoothly. Democrats will try to make sure that there are road blocks to slow things down. So I think it's a 50 50 that that you actually get a boat. Before November 3rd. What does that do for the president's campaign? Because a lot of positives you would think would be Oh, it reinforces his commitment to reinforce conservative justices on the Supreme Court, or at least conservative leaning justices. But some people have also said It could. You can really energized Democratic voters to go out to the polls. Yeah, I think that both Democrats and Republicans are highly energized right now and turn out in presidential elections who's usually in the 50 60% of eligible voters range. People think now it's up, probably in the mid sixties, which would be higher than anything since the Roosevelt elections. So 65 Would be a real big turnout, and it's hard to drive it up much past that, so I don't know that that it will have much effect. Second thing is that this race has been in Biden's favor by 5 to 7 points for the last six months in Pickman didn't change that impeachment was more than six months. Earlier but big events like impeachment, the Corona virus, the economic collapse. The economic comeback have not changed People's decisions between Trump and Biden. So I don't know that this will either Nancy Pelosi says she wants to maybe impeach the president again on this issue. Do you think about that? Well, I don't think that's gonna happen because November 3rd is going to clarify a lot of things. There's a lame duck session after November. 3rd where the congressman someone whom just got beat in their election are still in office until the first week of January. So I think there may actually be a vote on the nominee to replace Ginsberg after the election, which raises a whole new set of issues. But once once it's clear whether Trump continues as president or Biden as president, and whether or not the Democrats have taken the Senate that will clarify a great deal. The shoe may well be on the other foot right now. Republicans have the advantage and moving If, after the election, the Democrats have it. The interesting question is, how did they use it? Quick we've

Stumbling block: the battle over WeChat
"A new battle is shaping up in the legal wrangles around. Social Media APPS operating in. America. The trump administration's attempt to block we chat and Tiktok from American APP. Stores was overturned by a federal judge on Sunday. Yesterday, America's Commerce Department said it would appeal. The wildly popular video sharing Tiktok has been the subject of jockeying from American firms for ownership after President Donald Trump said he would ban it unless CEOS was agreed. It can't be controlled for security reasons by China too big too. Invasive and it can't be and here's the deal I don't mind if whether it's Microsoft or somebody else a big company secure company, very, very American company by it. That seemed to be solved on Saturday when he approved a deal involving Oracle and Walmart. But that still left, we chat a platform with a huge following in China and among the Chinese diaspora if you as battling TV use of which had that would ask. For examples, I can use the. In. The US Li Tang is Chinese but lives in New York Bats. The hub was blocking China's. Savings so The government binding dvd from using the reach hats not means my connection with China is totally being cut off. The administration's wish to block it entirely now lies with the courts, but that battle will be very different from the one over Tiktok. This was going to cripple these we just in America for about three and a half million Chinese Americans who the majority of its users and the California judge has sort of paused this in order to examine. Around freedom of speech in doing this, how Hudson is the economists Asia Technology correspondent. The ruling kind of acknowledges that while there may be national security questions, it doesn't appear immediately that Aban is the only way to deal with those questions and the ban does appear to impinge upon the freedom of speech of those Chinese Americans, and so it's kind of a we're gonNA take a moment here in to check how legal this is and that makes sense because nothing like this has ever happened before. So in in what way What what are the rights that are that are under threat here? Well, it's pretty broad brush. We shot is kind of everything up and both in mainland China and and in America people, use it, use it for loads of different things they use to send money to their families. They use it obviously to communicate to the most obvious analog. There is something like what's up but also has personal finances. It has news it's kind of like. A little internet in a box and for a lot of people that's the whole Internet, and so that's why cutting it off is such a risky thing and yet the fact that it's sort of all of the Internet in a single APP is particularly important in China where not only are other services. Particularly Western services blocked Yukon download them from APP stores in China, things like twitter and facebook and what's up, but the communication on we. Chat itself is censored according to the Chinese government sort of prescriptions and so in a way, this freedom of speech argument is actually a question of whose freedom of speech you know do we want Americans to be free from Chinese censorship or do we want them to be free to use a service that they want to use? It's a it's a difficult question and so on. What grounds is the trump administration trying to ban it. Well, the stated reasoning is that we chat presents a national security risk to America and to American people. As with Tiktok the idea is that data about American sort of intimate data communication with their families. Businesses can be harvested through we chat and sent back to the Chinese government for various purposes. The other concern is that we got sensors conversations on its APP and both of these have grounds. In fact there there's research from the group. Called the citizen's lobby in Toronto which does showed that we chat is censoring various kinds of communication, not just in mainland China but all around the world for its extra China, which users. But there's a more skeptical angle to this on the government's motivation, which is that being tough on China looks good for trump in the run-up to an election and it puts Joe Biden in a corner to sort of force him to take position on closeness with China. To how does the discussion around we chat fit into the the rather longer running one about Tiktok the difference between the two of them is that TIKTOK has American investors tiktok has its roots in the acquisition of an American company, and so that gives America sort of jurisdiction over to talk because America's always had control over investment in the United States, and that's the kind of starting point for the examination of Tiktok and the administration's talk on talk we chat doesn't have that. We chat doesn't have any American acquisitions that formed it. It's a much older piece of technology and it's much more sort of purely Chinese. So the only way that the administration has to attack tiktok is through this very unusual executive order that resulted in a list of transactions from the Department of Commerce. That again important to remember doesn't have a precedent and so you know when we're looking at what this the results of this temporary stay from the judge in California will be. It's very hard to say because nothing like this is awesome before. So in in that regard, the long run outcome of this won't be the kind of division and selling jockeying that we've seen about Tiktok no, there's no latitude for that. I mean the fact is as well that we chats three point five, million users in America doesn't represent like gigantic sort of social media growth opportunity that tiktok one, hundred, million users, a brand new APP that you know all the kids. Are On that's a much more exciting proposition for companies like Oracle at Walmart that are you know supposed to be taking stakes in? TIKTOK. But the other way in which these two things are joined up is in the American government's increasing efforts to control the kinds of things that happened on the Internet and this isn't just about versus China America versus China is kind of catalyzing a much much bigger discussion about what happens online and who gets to be in charge of that. But all of this seems to be getting away from the you know free on splintered on almost entirely unregulated Internet that America pioneered. Yeah. It undeniably is is just a factual observation to say that this source of activity very top down very directly political. You know trumped basically in charge of these things and and a group of bliscoll allies starts to look. A lot like the way that China does business online and I guess that's not necessarily a problem at Priori. But it's definitely a change in the way that America does its business and it is important to remember that it's not like America. Star should this to China has not allowed loads of different American services in for a very long time and you know one. Potential. Outcome of this is that you'll see the people who really need these services using them sort of illicitly. So you start to get a kind of grey market for digital services where your ability to route around the controls that your government puts on. You dictate your ability to access the services you need, and that's probably a bad thing. Hell, thanks very much for your time. Thank you Jason.

Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?
"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.
Judge extends Wisconsin absentee cutoff 6 days post election
"Today that absentee ballots and battleground Wisconsin can be counted up to six days after the November 3rd presidential election. As long as they are postmarked by Election Day. The highly anticipated ruling unless overturned means that the outcome of the presidential race in Wisconsin might not be known for days after polls close. Under current law, the deadline for returning an absentee ballot tohave it counted is eight PM on election day. Democrats and their allies sued to extend the deadline in the K swing state after the April presidential primary saw long lines, fewer polling places, a shortage of poll workers and thousands of ballots mail days after the election. US District Judge William Conley granted a large portion of their requests, issuing a preliminary injunction that was expected to be appealed all the way to the U. S. Supreme Court. He put the ruling on hold for seven days to give the other side a chance to seek an emergency appeal. In Wisconsin's April presidential primary. Judge Conley also extended the deadline for returning absentee ballots for a week and in that election, nearly 7% of all ballots cast or return the week after the polls closed. 2016 presidential rates was decided in Wisconsin by less than 1% point fewer than 23,000 votes.

Guess these are criticisms not doing enough to connect with the Latino community, and if you think that that assessment is fair or do you think that there's more work to do there? Were you know I think people are just so excited about the Joe Vying Kamala Harris. Ticket that everybody wants some light right there now in their neighborhood at knocking at their door, I mean, they're that excited about this ticket that I think there's some folks who who just feel like until they go come to their neighborhood, it's just not happening but but I know I serve on the National Latino. Council. For by now early supporter I know that from day one joe by his been reaching out to Latinos but I know that we can always do better. Anything that we could do to make sure that we reach more. Latino voters. Not Just in Florida not just in Texas not just in California. New York Arizona. New Mexico but everywhere across the country because if you look at any state these days we have Latinos everywhere we have them in Hawaii. We have him in Alaska. So I think what matters is knowing that that he has started his spanish-language press he started making sure that we we air as much as possible. Eh, he's gotten. The Latino Leadership Councils now in several states, I know I'm working on building up in in Texas because he wants to make sure that he touches the Latino community in especially also is Dr. Biden I think Dr Binding early on recognized Latino vote was and more importantly how important Bill Latino vote was that I know that she had a virtual event with with the would we call the commoditised synagogue Nestle. Which is Debbie Powell from Florida. Veronica, grammar from from Texas and myself were all three Judiciary Committee and people here called on ESCO mothers did judiciary it stock and Jill heard about it and wanted to do an event with us and we did, and now we're going to launch a commodity to commodity campaign to make sure that we impress all our voters that we got to vote until one mother to another. To remind work in our own mother network to make sure that we come out and vote to make sure that we make the change that's needed at the White House. So I'm excited. So one of the things I've found really impressive about Biden's response to that specific criticism is that he wasn't defensive and I think you know right before he visited Florida reporter asked him about. Whether there wasn't enough outreach to the Latino community and buying said something like you know I'm going to work like the devil to make sure that I listen and their vote. So he was open to the idea that there was room for improvement and I think both by an Harris are both consistent in responding without being defensive you know and they bring people to the table. There's a lot of work to do and I think we can always do better and I can tell you Scott along with surrogate were willing to do that. He's he's got a lot of people on the ground. Excited to do that. I mean I can tell you a story Saturday I. Don't do too many in person events, but they wanted me to go to a phone bank and I was assured that were social distance everybody's a math. And I went and the minute I walked in it was about Sylvia Joe Sylvia Joe. Any they know the job blindness running. They're excited because. It hurts them to see a White House that is about hurting people for us in. Texas. It's about what we've seen him doing at the border, but it's also seeing that they're not getting more help and more relief on for everybody on unemployment. It's also about what he's doing to Medicare and social security because that hurts our relief does on our lead us. So people know and they know the to make the change that we need they're going to have to get there in those phones. And? Of, course, the member of Congress I've First Ladies First. So that became their chance. Soviet Joe and I told him I said well, it's not just a joe as it Soviet Joe more contests. So I left him with at Madeira. Very excited. You're making calls and Were Spanish language of phone calls to low propensity Latino voters in Harris County

My home state burning I'm trying to come back to you guys new. York. One piece. Hey. Guess Co host to of in the thick, not only all stars but they've they've guest cohost. So awesome that you guys just say I was thinking about this this podcast years ago and we called so much of what's happening in America right nine we actually have the records to prove it just like the audio records of trump. We have the records to prove that we called a lot of this four years ago two, thousand, sixteen I feel like it's five because I've aged horrible fifty. In our minds in two thousand fifteen but it came to fruition in two, thousand, sixteen but. But. Yeah we did we and one of the things that we talked about which we all have talked about is the role of the media and how you guys are getting it wrong in. So many ways we talk about that but let's start off with our first topic so. It was twenty twenty. I think. You know every single one of us is battling some level of low grade or high-grade. Depression? You know he's just kind seeping in for me. The end of the summer is really hard moving into yet another season and still being in lockdown You know also just the weight of these decades, centuries of racism and injustice in this country. and that is kind of the backdrop for our twenty twenty-nine election update. We are now less than sixty days away from the November election I know, right so both the trump and binding campaigns are really upping their games. We think, right. We'd Hoke we know the Republicans are the Democrats. This election season but hey, the pandering has started as well. I don't know if guys have seen this actually was one of the first people notified about this campaign video by by Joe Biden people that are associated with the Joe. Biden campaign it's a campaign salsa song called. Biden. Muscles. Things. Just just. Coming off. Applaud keeps going. By. By then? Okay. Okay. Okay. So Oh God that's going to be playing all over Kissimmee Florida. I'm telling you they're going all in I know the people that created it. Very committed they just basically put Biden on the hook for that stuff right there. Yeah ecological in. Los Angeles. Off The detention facility. So his own campaign song is saying he's about to do that. Yeah. So and then the other thing I just wanted to add. Yaas who Maria interviewed. And frontline, we talk about this I think all the time you know the Obama deportation policy she was named to the transition team of Biden's campaign and all the immigrants, rights, activists, immigrant lawyers that I know I know you guys have been following. This are just there's a story in the hill people need to read it. They are up in arms about destroy. So there's a lot of questions about the Democrats right. Right it's it's yours to lose and I have nothing personally against Cecilia when yours But I did interview her and it was a moment that was very challenging Was You know? Talk me down 'cause right now I'm feeling like the. Vote. We are combined this immense electorate and it's like. Are you kidding me twenty twenty? I've been talking about this since the first time I covered politics in what in the early nineteen nineties. POC voters taken for granted.
"biden" Discussed on Skullduggery
"Him, begin to ramp up coming out of Labor Day, and that tempo will continue and increase between now and election day you'll be he'll be out there traveling he'll be going to battleground states and you know he'll be meeting people on the ground where they are from all walks of life all political parties in the big cities and in smaller towns I think you'll see that over the course of the next seven weeks. I WANNA get back to a few foreign policy questions if that's okay. Russia and actually before we get to that, just obviously we know what the Russians did in two, thousand sixteen and reports of what they're doing this year have Lee as the Biden campaign seen evidence that the Rut that Russian hackers are seeking to penetrate any of your emails. I am not aware of I. Don't know the answer to that question. What I do know is that Microsoft has indicated that Russian hackers including some of the same folks who around for years ago from the GRU have been targeting allies. But I have not been briefed on the question of whether been direct efforts attrition of the by an campaigns emails themselves in that foreign affairs article referenced before Biden wrote, We must impose real costs on Russia for its violations of international norms and stand with Russian civil society. This was written before the poisoning of Navan me the main. Russian. figure. But then he also writes in the very next paragraph I will also pursue an extension of the new start treaty and anchors strategic stability between the United States and Russia. What if those two goals that he articulates here are in conflict if we impose real costs on Russia, it undermines our ability to have a new start treaty with the Russians which takes precedence. Curbing a nuclear arms treaty or imposing real costs on Russia for its violations in their national look I. Know You're GonNa, think this is a bit of the dodge but I don't think it is i. think that that is a false choice I believe the United States can pursue effective sanctions policy against Russia and get the Russians to work with us on matters of arms control negotiation and part of the reason I believe that. Is because I lived it. I was there negotiating on the Iran nuclear deal with the Russians part of the p five plus one telling the Russian negotiators that sanctions were coming with respect to what they did in Ukraine, and then securing Russian cooperation in a series of heart asks of Iran. So we can walk and Chew Gum at the same time here I think that we can take measures. To respond hold accountable through the Magnitsky Act and other staps those who are participating in these vile acts including against Mr Navalny while at the same time sitting down with Russia on matters of security like the extension of the new start treaty. Another issue that is getting some attention is the war in Yemen and we have a report today from the New York Times that a State Department lawyer in two thousand sixteen while the Obama Biden Administration was in office concluded that American support for the Saudi war in Yemen including providing precision, guided bombs and other logistical support for bombing raids that. killed thousands of innocent civilians could amount to a war crime and that senior officials in the State Department and in the administration could be held liable for that. Now, I know you are one of the former Obama administration officials who signed that letter in two thousand eighteen saying that the Obama Biden support for the Saudi war in Yemen was a mistake and you regret it. But I don't know that I've heard whether the vice president shares that view and whether he spoke up at the time in opposing what President Obama was doing in providing that military support for the Saudi warned him. So the vice president has said that he would end support for the Saudi war in Yemen it would end in and he would not, and by the way going back to your question about Jamal Kashogi that it has been so many debates over the course of the cycle that I've momentarily forgotten. He spoke to the issue of Kashogi and said, one of the things that will be on the table would be a suspension of arms sales to the Saudis writ large but certainly, you would not be supplying them with any weapons or any military or logistical support for the war in Yemen. That's point number one but number two is I was not actually in the administration in two thousand sixteen and therefore don't know exactly what the nature of the internal deliberations were nor have I had the opportunity to look at data in detail the report laid out point number three as the basic proposition that US support. For Saudi, Arabia was going to be helpful to the cause of stability and peace in the region did not bear out period and therefore it would be a good thing for the vice president. To win this election, be able to implement an outcome that has the United States ceased. Any hand in the continued prosecution of that war so he will cut off arms at all arms sales to the Saudis. What what he said in the debate is that that would be on the table as as part of the response to what happened which Walker show. Gee, I got to say Jake I do hear a lot of waffling here like maybe we'll consider it but I can't promise. That's what we're GONNA do well, you can call waffling I what I would say is the vice president has been absolutely crystal clear in his position that. There has to be more accountability for Xiaojie than there is, but I certainly not gonna sit on this podcast and close off his options for how he's going to carry that out whether it's with respect to arms sales or with respect to sanctions. But you can you know come back on here in a year if we win this election and I think I will be able to look guys in the eye over zoom. And be able to say, yes, we did follow through on holding them accountable way so. Wait. It's it's you know it's hard for me to speak on his behalf when he and I haven't sat down to have a long conversation about what the exact nature of this is, and you know you guys can can appreciate that this is not. Just, very quickly. So year from now, we're going to be doing everything resume I was gonna say I hope not. I I got a couple more questions. Jake you you were talking about debates were two weeks away from the first presidential debate efforts of all I don't know has the commission announced a you expecting these will be not on zoom but physical debates both looking there. Okay. you know have been deeply involved in debate crap in the past I'm sure you will be this time around as well. What do you think? Donald Trump's strengths and weaknesses as a debater and what will you be advising Joe Biden going into that I debate. Well, I would say Donald Trump strength and weaknesses is basically that he has no shame and no real relationship with the truth. So that's a strength because he doesn't get phased by anything he just will keep powering on through. It's a weakness because over the course of ninety minutes is just complete lack of credibility ends up shining through and I feel that that's what happened to him in two thousand sixteen and I expect to see some something similar in twenty twenty. The other thing that I would just say in this regard is that the trump campaign has spent a lot of time lowering expectations on Joe Biden by saying he's not gonna be able to show up and be affected in these debates and I would just say Donald Trump to the extent. He's spinning that story in his own brain is going to be an for rude awakening because Joe Biden is going to come to the activate. Don't you WanNa keep lowering those expectations? Luck. My..
"biden" Discussed on Left, Right & Center
"This is Josh, Barrow and welcome to left right and center. You're civilized yet provocative antidote. The self contained opinion bubbles that dominate political debate. It is the second week of August and this week Joe Biden got a running mate California Senator Comma Harris. The Biden campaign mentioned does a lot of public suspense before settling on the most obvious choice a choice that fits well within the Biden campaign strategy of avoiding unnecessary risks and trying to appeal to his broader swath of the electorate as possible unlike. A lot of the other candidates that Biden considered Harris has a big national profile and the typical level of experience that you would expect if someone of vice president or president, she's been vetted through the media and her strengths and weaknesses as a candidate are well known. So most likely no surprises here. Harris alienates few potential Biden voters unlike other possible who might have been seen as too far to the left or too close to the center she's also a historic pick should be the first woman. To serve as vice president and she's the first black woman and first Asian American person ever on a major party national ticket. This isn't a contradiction but I think it says something interesting about where we are as a country that she is both a historical pick in this way, and also the safest most consensus candidate that Biden could have chosen to talk about that I want to bring in our left right and center panel is always I'm your center I'm joined by Meghan mcardle calmness the. Washington Post on the right and left Dory and Warren President of the Center for Community Change Hello Great to be with you thanks for having me during what do you make of the choice of Comma Harris I think it's fascinating and exciting from a democratic and progressive perspective because it shows I that Democrats aren't making the same mistake they did in two thousand sixteen by attempting to appeal to we might think of as a nonexistent swing voter by taking no risks as essentially what Hillary Clinton did. This pick shows that I think the Democratic Party and former Vice President Joe Biden in particular are recognizing that Americans I want leadership that reflects the diversity of the country and that this could potentially be a. Pick for base voters I want to go back to something you said at the top Josh around the most obvious pig let's just remember. I don't think we would say this is the most obvious pick. So it's sort of a side of how much at least the Democratic Party has shifted over the last four years and frankly the country and then I think on the other side in terms of the Republican Party in the trump campaign. I think they'd have a strategy for her and so I think what we're now seeing as their bumbling around trying to you know, use all sorts of epithets and birtherism to Plano and Castro's non-citizens. There's just a lot of Michigan that's happening on the other side because I don't think they expected this conventional wisdom pick to be the pick. During I thought one thing that was interesting about this choice because the president said that he was surprised that Biden Pick Kamala Harris which is. A little weird because it was she was presumably leading the VP veepstakes the the whole way through. But I think that trump looks at this and there's a significant risk that Harris overshadows biden on the ticket and certain ways. Certainly Republicans already one of the things they're saying about it is that you know it's really really she's going to be running the show and then it's this weird double thing where she's going to be running the show and then she herself as a puppet of. And the left and that sort of thing but it's Certainly she. She has such a high profile and there are certain Democrats who are also eager for that sort of narrative basically that you know people who weren't that eager about Biden in the primary Maybe they see this as Harris is the thing that is motivating them here, and so I think that the trump but frankly a lot of other politicians would have looked at that and said, you know I want a pick that really says that I'm in charge I don't want people to be able to say that I'm overshadowed by vice presidential candidate and I think it's interesting that Biden wasn't. Wasn't put off by that and went ahead and chose her I. think it shows a certain maturity and if you think about what trump is predictably doing, he's calling her meat he's he's using all his favorite sexist attacks. He's sort of like the boy who cried wolf. These things about so many women nasty women. It's a rerun of the last time. A woman pissed him off and Biden picking. Harris. Shows a level of maturity and willingness to work with those who have differences compared to themselves as remember. Harris criticized Biden on his shortcomings and instead of whining and crying about it like the the crybaby and the White House he chose to work with our in picker knowing the full risk that she might overshadow him I think we should all be taking notes of that kind of political maturity. The other point here is for all the attacks that are gonNA come comma. Harris on Senator Harris. On the one hand there, you could make the case that there's a question empirical question will she be pre? We'll see increase turnout among particularly black voters are not on the other hand, the more trump attacks, her the more. There will be a rallying fact around her Megan, what do you make of this?.

When asked what would you do? Differently I listened to the experts well. We already know what he'd do differently. We watch them on n one h one to quote him really h one n one. So then you know. The train wreck continues with these interviews. You know whether he said. I'm going to be joe or beat Joe Biden. It sounded like Beach Biden to me, but whatever it is, but he's doing a pretty good job of beating himself, and he does this interview with a radio host by the name of Charlemagne. It was so bad you can see like Joe shushing away a staffer who tried to prevent. You know this ever confused boss from from answering any more questions, and that's when he said the line that you just heard. You Ain't black if you don't support him in the election. Well. Now rightly, all the criticism has been taking place You have even the radio host Charlemagne saying that Biden is an intricate part of the system that needs to be dismantled the founder of B. E.

He spent his fifteen minutes laying the wreath on Memorial Day back in his basement, being stupid and he couldn't Bill O'Reilly. Right couldn't answer the question and that is. What would you do differently joe? Listen to the experts. That's not an answer because Donald Trump listened to the experts and the expert by the way none of the experts agreed with him on the travel ban or the quarantine or the subsequent travel bans. He did all that on his own. And we'll Joe, Biden well I. Think this whole Mucho thing about not wearing a mask. The president probably is the one person doesn't have to wear a mask because he's getting tested and everyone around him has to get tested. which is the right thing to do and I'd say that regardless of WHO's the president? But what's going to happen in one hundred sixty days? A lot is going to happen. Then you're GONNA have once Joe has to come out his bunker and they're going to have whatever convention they're gonNA. Have Trump's GONNA have a convention, a real convention, regardless of what the Democrats do and I I would imagine. There's probably pressure on the Democrats, Wa-, what do we do? He's GonNa. Have One. We're GONNA. Look stupid. Joe Is going to be in his basement. That's not going to look to exciting so we'll see what happens here. But then he's going to have to answer for quid pro quo. Joe Is going to have to answer for zero experience hunter and Ukraine and China then he's going to have to identify what he would have done differently why he called. The travel bans phobic hysterical fearmongering. He's going to have to explain why eight years as vice president thirteen million more Americans on food stamps eight million more in poverty. Then he's going to have to explain. Why did why did IT TAKE DONALD TRUMP? Because he's you know he now has the definition while if you vote for trump, you ain't black.

He's accusing him of you know it's just like he's. He's flailing. And everyone's hoping. For Your Points Michelle. Obama he can't lose I don't know. Michelle Obama wants it or not, but I'll take trump's economic record against the Obama Biden record any day, and I'll take trump's foreign policy success and beating Baghdadi and killing him and killing. Sola Mani and killing the al Qaeda leader in Yemen and and defeating the caliphate that they couldn't be bringing back jobs from overseas manufacturing jobs that they said was never coming back.

"All things Riley Simple Ma'am Mr O'Reilly. All right. You WanNa talk about Biden Women enough time last. Segment your thoughts on this on CNN last night. Very simple question posed. If you were President what would you do differently to handle pandemic saw? Mr Biden was lucid. He had control over his words last night killing Reagan. So I'm familiar with because when Ronald Reagan got shot. He lost that ability for a little while. Got It back so biden could not or would not answer that question and I'm sitting there going what's going on. I mean you don't have anything that you would do differently. He said Oh. I've listened to the scientists like who was that imply that trump doesn't listen to the side. There's what's out there. I mean come on think not welcome. Sorry go ahead. Well anything but he listened to the scientists. That's what when they said and this is where there was no option here. The country demanded a shutdown the projections which have all been wrong. So far were two and a half million Americans. We're going to die bill. That's what they told us. They got it wrong. China lied all the models were wrong. You know faucher. I love the guy but he was saying. The risk is low on February twenty-ninth and he was saying that you know you don't have to wear a mask like March tenth and March nineteen. If you're young and healthy you can go on a cruise ship. Yeah but that was a teed up for Biden to absolutely knock it out of the park. Here's what I would do differently than president trump. Abcd he couldn't come up with one Hannity. WanNa why because while they were impeaching him. He put in the travel ban. This was ten days after the first identified corona virus case then the quarantine I in over fifty years then subsequent travel bans alder and impeachment. They weren't talking about corona. Nobody was the an and you would think at. The interviewer would jump in and go Mr Vice President. You have one thing that you can point to the.

"Ones elitist. Help. Economy recover no way you want him to be the one to help prevent the spread of Corona virus now and and the president trump is getting the credit for what's being done and in California, which is a real election and the first time in decades that we looked to see from Democrats Republicans. They basically the mayor held up announcing that he was gonNA shut the city of La down until August he held that right. You know just when it's too late at the voters would react, and as of today, the last numbers I saw Garcia was up by twelve points, not even. So Donald Trump is the way to get elected in any job. Never trumpers distance himself making a big mistake. I. Don't see that I mean Biden the sheltering in place. Scott and every time he goes on, does one of his stupid virtual town halls. He looks dumber than the last one. even this week another disaster. My aunt any walks to the camera takes off as aviator sunglasses I. Mean it just looks so contrived fake and phony in this guy he he's not been pushed. He's not been stretched at all or challenged in any way, and he seems to do best when he's hiding at some point doesn't have to come out of his basement. Well some point you will have to come out of his basement and the notion. I can't even imagine what a debate between the two candidates will look like in terms of energy level in terms of focusing on issues and everything else you know look. There is John mentioned buyer's remorse. thirty five percent of voters say it's still at least somewhat likely. Biden is going to be replaced as the nominee, and that includes twenty eight Senate Democrats that speaks to a tremendous lack of okay, so then that that's nominee that raises the question. You think he gets replaced you. There's a chance Scott Rasmussen than Bat than John. It is a difficult thing to replace him. For one reason that reason is Bernie Sanders because a lot of Democrats say oh, we need somebody like governor. Cuomo whoever else. If you take the nomination away from Joe Biden and do not give it to Bernie Sanders the Bernie rose. You're just going to just leave free to civil war within the Democratic Party, so I don't think it's going to happen but I. Think it's going to be an ongoing issue. Matt, What Jill? Biden Jill his wife, says well. You know I just don't think my husband's up to it. What happens then? I think it becomes a shift show. Well, I think it would be a method that you know Scott makes it very good point about Bernie Sanders group, but probably the the the deft way for them to do, it would be for Biden get the nomination. And after he gets the nomination at some point there quickly there after have to bow then your vice presidential nominee would likely become your presidential nominee, and that person is going to be an Obama approved. Person I can guarantee you that so that that's probably the only way they could pull it off and I know there are a lot of rules DNC. Not, sure they can do it prior to that, and maybe they couldn't do it after that I do think this. Though I think that Biden is going to increasingly right now. The public's not focused, Scott. We're word about a pandemic. We're worried about our own livelihood and our our safety when we start focusing on these candidates, and they really see how weak by this that's when the Democrats are going to start to really panic..

"Everything else is closed, but he opened up new polling places just to help in democratic more democratic parts of the district What do you make of those two? Victories, because my interpretation is, is that whatever momentum Democrats might have had? In two thousand eighteen would be gone. Scott shown you know when you talk about these things. I always offer the caution that people attach too much You know excitement to special elections, but these do cut against the narrative that somehow this is all a disaster for the president, and for the Republicans something going on out there Matt mentioned people who are anxious to get back out to work We did a poll. Poll, the other day, and found that sixty percent of voters six out of ten believe that all businesses should be allowed to reopen now as long as they practice some you know safety protocols, only twenty six percent oppose. This is not the narrative we're hearing. I think that's feeding into some of these special election results and I think it's. It's a larger problem for the. The Democrats in the sense that we are not able to sustain these lockdowns. They are not a popular a response, and there is no plan and some of the day I live in New York City. There's no plan here to reopen the city anytime soon, and that is a problem in creating increasing levels of frustration so I think if you begin to look at the. The dynamics of I think we've passed a tipping point. Voters are saying okay. A week or two of a lockdown may have been okay to get us past the initial surge this certainly in New York it was, it was well received, but now let's get back to the business of making. America work and I think people were are looking to a different kind of leadership for that. We have a couple of issues for emerging on Biden one is he's were recruiting Ao.

"I've only spoken to her once since She came out with her whole story and it. The entire conversation was more about moral support. And you know giving her whatever feedback. I could in terms of the way in which people are going to come for her. The various things that she needed to do to protect herself. I think it was more a lot more practical advice and also just moral support and letting her know that I was thinking about her and that. I'm you know obviously empathize with everything. She's going through. What's your number one piece of practical advice? My number one piece of practical advice to her was that she just really needed to take it day by day and to focus on herself and her truth and her why her why yes like. Why did you decide to speak out? Tell me more about that. Well that's for me. That's what kept me grounded when I was experiencing so much harassment after I spoke about my interactions with that I had to always focus on. Why did I decide to do this? And we talked about those reasons. I'm curious why did you decide to tell your story? I'm not sure that I know that. Like what what your decision process was. The primary reason was because I began to see photos emerge of him interacting with other women and there were stories that were written and there was even a Vignette that was done by John. Stewart and making fun of creepy uncle. Joe Biden left his hands on Stephanie. Carter shoulders for an estimated twenty seconds. You seem tense distress of me. Groping you for twenty eight straight seconds and so. I had to constantly be reminded that he was acting this way that he was making women feel uncomfortable and everyone was just laughing about it. It was not being treated seriously and I knew from personal experience what that felt like and it was wrong for Lucy. Telling her own story was a way of shifting. The way the rest of us saw what happened to her not as an incident that was laughably awkward but as an incident where she was actually harmed and that gives her empathy for. Tara Reid who seems to be seeing what happened in our own life through new eyes. Her allegations of what happened in. Biden's office have become more extreme over time at I read told. Reporters Biden made her uncomfortable. She said he ran a finger up her neck during a meeting her to serve cocktails because she had nice legs. But that story evolved into a full on assault charge. I think that the way in which we characterize the various things that she has done like for example. I don't consider the stories that she has said. I don't consider them being a story. Why not because she? All she did was leave out details. She hasn't changed the fundamental substance of any of the things that she said she experienced. It is all been part. She omitted in A. This isn't coming from her. This is what I would I would think. Is that as you gain confidence or the courage to tell a little bit more And she did try to tell a little bit more shortly thereafter but media did not in the AP said this that they were not able at the time to robbery those parts of the stories and yet Katie Helper. Now all of these additional journalists have so you have to question. How much effort did you really put into crop rating these stories that they were so easily corroborated. Al Right we should say. Joe Biden denies that anything happened between himself and Tara Reid it sounds like you believe all of allegations including the most recent ones. I do believe Tara. Ultimately in all of these situations everyone will have to come to their own conclusion. You know because there's rarely smoking gun evidence and I just hope that win folks are assessing that that they're doing so with at least in informed viewpoint and not because they have immediately made this knee-jerk reaction because this person doesn't fit the profile of a perfect victim..

"Quick were boarding. Here are the top. This episode does describe an incident of sexual assault. I heard that you have this file. You keep of hate mail. You've gotten over the last year or so. Is that true? Yes Lucy. Florez knows what it means to accuse a powerful man of hurting you. She knows what you can lose. It gets filled almost luckily not daily but it was daily. What's in there? It's a lot of. It's a lot of? Hey it's a lot of vitriol. It's a lot of cruelty and a couple. That are scary so I keep all of those because you just frankly never know when something terrible could potentially happen to you and you want there to be a record last spring before Joe Biden was officially even running for president. Lucie Florida accused him of making her uncomfortable in such a peculiar way that it seemed hard to have made up. The story goes like this movie. Lucy been running for Lieutenant. Governor of Nevada Biden had agreed to stump with her. This is back in two thousand fourteen. Lucy says they were getting ready to step out on stage together. They're all blind up listening for their cues. We were all waiting to be called and I feel his hands on me on my shoulders and that in and of itself was already weird because I was like. Oh my God the vice president. Lucy can't forget these little details of their interaction. How she hadn't washed her hair that morning and it made her especially mortified when Biden leaned in to sniff her head and then he plans this slow kiss on the top of my head and I am just. I don't know what to do. I I don't move I don't my arms are still at my side. I I just I just and I'm literally just praying to God. That is willing to listen for my name to be called because I just want to be out of that situation last year as Lucy told this story publicly over and over again it wasn't just hate mail that started pouring in. There are also messages of support messages from women. Saying I've been in situations just like that one with the boss or a with Joe Biden after you spoke out how many other women came forward with their own allegations I always lose track. I think it was seven or eight total Including me so I think it was an additional seven or an additional six. One of these women was Tara. Reid Tara Reid. A former Biden staffer accusing the former. Vp of sexual assault says she TARA ARENA SENATE PERSON. You probably know her name by now. A year. After Lucy Flora came forward were reads allegations are now at the forefront read telling the Associated Press quote. I know that I was too scared to write about the sexual assault read alleges that Biden went far beyond sniffing her hair. She says he assaulted her when she worked in his Senate office back in the ninety s Lucie Florida said that after she went public with her allegation Tara. Reid reached out to her wanted to talk. I do still have the email where she talked about that. She had several incidents with Joe Biden. And that she wanted to speak out as well but I did not end up reaching out to her because it was such a it was. It was a really difficult thing to bear. You know your as a sad. It's I don't think we talk enough about what women experience when they speak out against a powerful man you must. You must wonder what she would have sent to you. I do. I do wonder ally and I you know and I actually feel a little bit of guilt.

"All right so let's get into some details about who joe might nominate and the best way to look at that. I think is a kind of working our way through his history I think all of us were sort of surprised. Going through is history. How sort of effective. He seems to have been against justices in a lot of ways. At least he was a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee for a big chunk of his tenure as Senator and he was the chair of it from eighty seven through ninety five. I that committee holds hearings on and investigates nominations to the Supreme Court. And so I wanNA kind of run through his votes and We should note here that Supreme Court. Nominations weren't really contentious at all until about the mid eighties. Right started being contentious. And then it's sort of ratcheted up to the current day where every single one You know sort of a battle in eighty one. He voted yes on. Sandra Day. O'connor was a unanimous. Vote for yes in eighty six. He voted no on Rehnquist. As the Chief Justice Rehnquist been nominated to the courts in the early seventies and it was appointed as an associate justice. Reagan nominates him to be the chief justice. The reason that it was sort of contentious is that Rehnquist apparently tried to convince Justice Jackson in the early fifties to oppose Brown v the Board of Education to side with the segregationists and he claimed that he was just sort of an intellectual exercise when he was testifying to the committee in what was almost certainly perjury and that was one of the first. Modern era fights for over Supreme Court. Justice Biden opposes him in eighty six. So it's Yes for Scalia In a ninety eight to zero vote in Nineteen eighty-six which While a a mistake. In retrospect it was uncontroversial in large part because it was considered a big deal to get an Italian American on the court. Yeah not a joke. Eighty-seven he opposes Robert. Bork maybe the nomination that led us to where we are in terms of how aggressive the fights can be over. Supreme Court appointments. Yeah for our listeners. Who Don't Know Robert? Bourke is just a fucking huge piece of shit like your real garbage in the mid nineties after his nomination had died and all that he wrote a book called slouching toward Gomorrah Modern Liberalism and American decline like. That's the type of guy that they were trying to put on the fucking Supreme Court. He's also been very very influential in antitrust law. Which is you know all about like how we handle monopolies or prevent monopolies. I don't know if anybody has like taking a peek out their window and and you know noticed what the what. The weather's like in terms of American capitalism and monopolies. But I don't think he's theories of law have panned out to how it was Biden voted. No he played an instrumental role. In killing BORK's domination he helped recruit a few Republicans to make the no vote. Bipartisan and just publicly grilled bork on The Right to privacy which you know obviously is what underlies women's right to choose Having abortion in that Supreme Court history. That right goes back to a case called Griswold v Connecticut which was about regulating contraception and preventing people from getting contraception. And it was about you know married families having autonomy in their the privacy of their bedrooms and Biden. Just grills bork on this. And if you watch it if you don't really know what's going on it can be a little confusing but it's if you know even a little. It's pretty clear that Biden's just trying to get bored to come out and say women shouldn't have these rights and Bork is just like fuck in dodging him saying like look. Yeah have openly criticized Griswald And by Extension Roe v Wade by I've criticized the reasoning. The court used to get to these decisions. I'M NOT SAYING THAT. Like necessarily the right desert does not exist and at some point. Biden. 'cause look you've been a lot of rest for a long time you've been talking about this for a long time really telling you've seen nothing in the constitution one way or another to like make this call. You're one of the most Well read and scholarly people to come before this committee in all your short life. Have you come up with any other way to protect a married couple under the constitution against an action by a government? Telling them what they can or cannot do about birth control in their bedroom. Is there any constitutional rights anywhere in the constitution? I have never engaged in that exercise. I passed on what I was doing was criticizing doctrine. The Supreme Court was creating which was capable of being applied in unknown ways in the futures basically they killed Bork's nominee. Yeah right sort of exposed and clearly obviously just trying to avoid saying what was blatantly true you know it ended it which is good because he replaced with fucking Kennedy. Who for all his faults and we've talked about him? Being an idiot is much better than Robert. Bork and especially on both Abortion and on gay rights. Yeah Yeah you don't get the gay marriage decision. You don't work for the majority. The gay marriage is illegal in this country in many states. Without this happening right right. Yeah all right so Joe Biden. Votes no onboard. He's instrumental in knocking bork. Damn embarks place. Comes Anthony Kennedy? He votes yes on Kennedy who was confirmed ninety seven zero he votes for suitor Justice Suitor. Who ends up being a liberal by the way although as Bush senior nominee sooner gets confirmed? And then Clarence Thomas Biden votes. No on Thomas but Asterisk he leads the hearings in his as head of the committee and essentially. Just let's Republican senators openly smear Anita Hill. Who had accused very credibly in my view. Clarence Thomas of sexually harassing her at the Biden voted no on Thomas. Whatever the end of the day his actions probably didn't have a effect on the outcome of Thomas's confirmation? Just because things had sort of crystallize along party lines already at that point but his actions at that hearing nothing short of disgraceful just a fence rows. Moral failure really discussing stuff right. Yeah exactly So two thousand five by votes. No on Chief Justice John Roberts balls and strikes Mr Balls and strikes. The Umpire himself young player himself The vote was seventy eight twenty two so there was some real democratic opposition. But this wasn't a contentious one. I don't think anyone really thought that he would lose the same year he votes no on Samuel Alito The current sort of Resident Weirdo on the court. Thank yeah resident dumb ass after I think it's two thousand seven buns no longer a senator but he made statements opposing Corsican. Cavenaugh the bottom line here is. You've got some real genuine dark spots in how he handled this stuff is actual votes have been surprisingly strong. It's hard to imagine someone being much stronger I frankly he you know. He's opposed just about every Republican nominee in the past thirty years every Republican nominee since suitor. My guess is a big part of this is. He's just sort of a party. I guy think he's also been a hard liner on Roe v Wade. Frankly that's a big part of it for him and of course probably worth noting Biden's in the White House. When Obama Nominates Sotomayor and Kagan Keagan very sharp I think maybe the sharpest member of the court great writer reliable liberal vote on the big issues but she can be wishy washy strong tendencies towards formalistic reasoning for chefs. Yeah Soda my or may be impure jurisprudential terms these strongest Supreme Court justice in history by favorite. He's great and you know. I think we can mostly ignore Merrick. Garland this conversation is a pathetic and embarrassing attempt by Obama to nominate someone who the Republicans would approve. But I do want to note that I am like a little bit haunted. By the prospect that bienne would nominee Carlin fulfill legacy. He was once asked about it and said that he was open to it. Probably a meaningless statement. You know. Someone's like are you opening this sure. But yet if he did that I mean I cannot tell you how much it would just fucking flip my brain on its head. I'm no longer doing the podcast. I'm going Fulton Che Guevara if he does that. Yeah the one thing that gives me. Some confidence is his pledge right is publicly stated in reiterated that he would dominate the first black woman to sit on the Supreme Court which I mean. It's a very Joe Biden thing to say to make that sort of campaign right but like it's completely separate from ideology right. You ever seen a black lady up there yeah yeah. I don't know if you guys saw this. But Jonathan Turley the biggest fucking hack law. Professor wrote an article criticizing Biden. Pledge Calling it affirmative action in court for Constitutional Shit and one of his arguments about why this is like a bad pledge is because they're not many black women judges in select. Think about how narrow the pool is Mike Company. Beautiful and brilliant white man. Are you passing up on right? Yeah that's unreal argument right. Jonathan early fucking full grown adult putting on Florida's before he goes in.

"All on Biden Bernie has nothing to lose If I can do no harm right is he's challenge is going to be don't belittle don't flood any answers and he's you know let's face it. He needs he needs that movement that Sanders has built. He's not going to get all by the way there's going to be someone on that are never but but he's got to get most of it And they've got to get them turn out he's got to get them excited. And he he's not there yet although let. Let's just talk about Michigan for a second? And let's talk about Michigan Rick with an eye towards the general election. Assuming that Biden continues along this path pulls it off. He's the Democratic nominee Michigan's. Obviously I mean one of the absolute most important states in general election one of those that Donald Trump won and helped get him to in into the White House. We know all of that but if you look you mentioned that he won every county against Bernie Sanders. I think that the more. That's a very important thing. A lot of those counties are counties that he's going to have to take to be sure Donald Trump but the other thing was turnout was records for Democratic primary. That's right and and it was against the backdrop of corona virus and that scare and the knowledge that most of the candidates that were running. We're not in the race anymore. We're down to two in the final days. Yeah there are a lot of early votes. Something like forty percent of them early votes but The this was this was a test of all of those things. And of course Michigan takes on this kind of mythical place in the democratic mind because of the fact that it was the site if that upset by Bernie Sanders in the primaries and then that bigger upset by Donald Trump in the fall. So look if you're talking about electability if you're talking about how you relate to white working class voters the fact that Joe Biden has them already for all the flaws in his coalition. The fact that young voters are not excited about him. The fact that Latino voters are not on board the same number you can count on African American voters being solidly behind Joe Biden at this moment and white working class voters again to kind of folks that powered the Obama coalition the Bill Clinton coalition but flipped over to Donald Trump in the last couple of years They kind of like Joe and that is a that is a not insignificant factor if you're the White House if you're donald trump looking at the match up that's now developing or we've got to take a quick break when we come back. Rick is going to tell us. If.

"FROM THE NEWSROOM OF WASHINGTON POST ABC Washington Washington. It's known Nakashima with Washington. Mrs Post reports I- Martine powered March fourth today Biden surprising surge the Federal Reserve responds to the Corona virus. And why we're all doing a bad job washing our hands so who ended up winning or quote unquote winning on to produce day. Well there's winning in two sentences. There's winning in the sense of how many delegates were accrued. Philip bump covers politics fix that is to be determined some extent fourteen states each individual congressional district in all those states American Samoa. All of those contests will yield delegates based on how people dating each of those contests and as such the winner of each of those hundred eighty. Plus contest is to be determined but the real one was Joe Biden Super Tuesday for nothing now county. Now let behind. This is your campaign. Jill Biden was the winner on Tuesday simply by virtue of the fact that he won more states but particularly because he won more states when everyone a ago figured his campaign had maybe a couple more days to go. Go the press. The punishment declared a campaign did report. We're much we really saw a surge for Biden in South Carolina. He wants off Carolina in convincing fashion. And then really did. A very good job is came in a very good job of coalescing his past competitors around his candidacy. And next thing you know on Super Tuesday's seizes huge national surges surgeon. All these different states ends up winning not only southern states which is where Bernie Sanders Portland. Two Thousand Sixteen Wensley Minnesota Massachusetts which a week ago again we're saying well looks like Bernie. Sanders can win those states and knock with four NIIMI KLOBUCHAR instead ends up being super juicy me over so we're in. With whom did Biden do particularly well last night? The shortest way to answer that question and say the binded well with black voters in particular in the South. There's nuance there. The nuance is that for example. He did better in Texas. With white voters tended Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders do better with Latino voters in Texas but Biden Scout? A win in Texas Biden also did well in Minnesota Massachusetts which obviously is a different demographic base than North Carolina or Alabama. He showed strength with White Democrats that I think people may not have anticipated that he would do. I think is important. Moving forward in the race sanders did well in states like Colorado. He did well in California too well of course Vermont but there's a really important asterisk that should be applied to sanders. Good showing California and it's going to get better over time I'll point this out. For the simple reason that Bernie Sanders was able to bank a lot of early voting absentee votes when he was doing much better in the race before this big biden surge and a lot of the California vote was already done by a week ago before last weekend before the Biden surge in that all went heavily to Bernie Sanders. We saw exit polling showed. That is the people made up their minds in the last three days by one then by ten fifteen points sanders one Nevada before that by much wider margin and it really just seems like Biden was a lot of people's acceptable. Second Choice that once the field started to thin and people were looking around and saying like well. There's a candidate that I love but there's also the candidate that I could survive seeing as the nominee and for a lot of people that was Biden in a way that I think is not true for Bernie Sanders really. What we're talking about here is there are a lot of Democrats who really like Bernie Sanders message. They like his policy ideas. They liked the idea of Medicare for all. They liked the idea of a college education being affordable or free or paid for by the Government. They like these things have Bernie Sanders has put forward but they really liked the idea of donald trump losing more right and we see that in exit poll after poll. The thing which is driving people you mean motivation to main concern is having donald trump lose after sanders emerged as the frontrunner people started to be like. Okay well what does this actually mean the context of him taking on trump and it certainly is the case. There are arguments to be made that he can beat. Donald Trump in November But polling has shown that it probably is more likely that you'll biden can be trump in in November and that really spurlock people be like okay. Then this is the guy we should put four and a big part of the argument that Sanders had been making about how he can beat. Trump in November. Is this idea of young people on that. He is the candidate that can activate young people people who would not otherwise vote. Tell you with absolute competence. We're going to win the Democratic nomination. We are going to defeat. Trump didn't necessarily support that we go sway off putting together an unprecedented grassroots multi generational multiracial movement. What we've seen over the course of the primaries that doesn't really support that this was his electability pitch you make me nominee and I'm going to bring out these people who don't normally vote and to be fair that worked to some extent for Donald Trump. Donald Trump was the beneficiary in two thousand sixteen. Both of increase turnout from people who don't normally vote who were very motivated by his campaign and from Hillary Clinton both having this perception that she was going to win and not being a particularly She didn't have a lot of enthusiasm. Powering her candidacy. So it made sense that sanders could make that case. The problem is that unlike trump his core basis support is a group. That really doesn't vote very often. There are lot of reasons why I mean we tend to talk about young people not voting and we tend to talk about it almost a pejorative sense but really what it is. It's easier to vote if you don't move all the time because you don't have to register voters you have lived in the same house because you own the house because you know where your polling places. It's easier to vote it. You're not working on election day right. There are all these reasons that young people are disadvantaged in it is harder for them to vote which makes it less likely for them to vote but it also means that if you are a candidate who's relying on those young people you're in trouble because you've got a big hill. You have to climb even before you start trying to cobble together your coalition. I also just want to talk briefly about some of the other candidates so former mayor Mike Bloomberg did not do well. He is now out of the race. Chapin very fast. But I'm wondering about Elizabeth Warren happening a lot of folks trying to turn voting into some located strategy. She was having a rally in Detroit Michigan. Prison did not vote on Tuesday night. And our colleague anyone scheme political reporter she was with Warren and warns camp last night in Detroit. She was there to kind of look down the calender rally rally people for the beyond Super Tuesday on in all ready. Here's my advice. Cast a vote. That will make you proud..
