    I will say it again: Joe Biden is the bane of millennials, he has voted on financial legislation to make it harder for ppl to discharge private student loan debt into bankruptcy. He has done so much to serve the banks and to harm the middle class, especially those that needed to take out loans or use credit cards, it is MADNESS that anyone thinks he is a good pick for POTUS.

    Elizabeth Warren has plans and can tell you what she’d do. I know who deserves a vote

      Ironically, she's probably the most electable candidate.

    Joe’s in front because for the majority of voters, he’s the name they remember. That’s how uninformed they are. Scary, given the great women and men who are on the ticket.

    At this point, this early out without doing proper research into the candidates, I would love to see Bernie as president and Elizabeth Warren as Vice President, but I want Bernie to stick to one term and then pass the torch to a younger more progressive candidate (preferably of the non white male variant)

    LOL everyone saying Sanders OR Warren... why not both? President and Vice President? Of course, Warren would probably be the vice president because America is sexist and can't deal with the thought of having a woman as president, so baby steps? Honestly. VP is the next glass ceiling to break.

    Biden is too old. America, you don't need another old self centered politician to guide your nation. You need someone young who actually want to change things, sees America for what it actually is, and doesn't want to get in the top just to get some money for their friends.

    I'm sorry. I'm a huge fan of Sam B but this video is just dumb and destructive. Biden IS the most electable and it IS because he is a traditional candidate. He's not my top pick, but I don't want another election where indecision and division amongst democrats gives Trump the election for a second time. Use your heads fellow democrats, keep your ideals, but for gods sake act logically.

    • Brian Pomeroy

      Trump is in it for himself and Biden is in it for his own survival. He's been briefed by the wealthy and reminded what happened to the Kennedy's. The wealthy will always be in charge and the poor will just die ignorant.

    Want to lose the general election? Talk policy.
    If your policy was out there and your opponents isn't, you lose.

    Bernie only lost because the party cheated and the media did bad coverage. And pushing for black or female candidate only for those reason is not a good idea.

  • theicyridge

    Who is calling Beto O'Rourke electable?

  • Njörun Ránsdóttir

    Speaking of electability... Samantha Bee, would you consider interviewing Marianne Williamson? I know she’s unconventional and perhaps not entirely appropriate as a candidate, *but* she has passed the benchmarks to be included in the debates, and she’s even bringing up some policy ideas to the left of Bernie Sanders: she supports full benefits for part-time workers, mandatory paid vacation for all, she introduced the idea of no less than $100 billion in reparations for descendants of African slaves and Native Americans, and she supports universal basic income, as well as the now necessary Medicare for All and free university education and universal pre-k policies. Plus she has a gigantic social media following, so it seems weird that the media won’t take her seriously in the age of Trump. Her message of love defeating hate could be the counter-Trump ticket. Oh, and she’s promised to take no PAC money too.

    The Bernie and goose joke was heartwarming. Funny, without viciously undermining everything he stands for.
    This is how it's done. Thank you, Samantha Bee.
    And as for YOU, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah...
    Jon Stewart will see you out back.

    It doesn't make sense that Sam uses polling of Democratic voters to make a case for electability in the general election. That doesn't prove her point, at all. Furthermore, maybe the male candidates have lost elections and the female candidates haven't, but Kamala Harris won in California and Beto O'Rourke almost won in Texas so Beto may have a better argument for winning the voters needed to swing the electoral college which is weighted toward Middle-America. Both Beto and Kamala can win California but Kamala may not have a dim chance in Texas. The question people have about electability is whether the winner of the primaries can win the general election and Sam does not address that issue. The arguments she makes do not logically lead to her conclusion.

    Joe Biden looks like he died two years ago, but, no one told him.

  • Brandon

    I think Biden is one of the worst candidates in the race right now, but saying that he is being hailed as “most electable” because he is a white man is a bit odd. There’s like 14 other white male candidates right now. There are definite biases in here, but let’s not kid ourselves as to why Biden is so “electable.” 1, Obama associations; 2, more moderate than most + appealing to all the older voters or semi moderate independents + farther left voters will line up behind him if he’s the nominee
    Don’t link all the women either. Gillibrand is even worse than Biden. Warren is amazing. They’re not equal

    Biden might be a man, but all these women are just more of the same: corporatists, servents to the Military Industrial Complex and/or Wall Street.
    You want a real female leader? Take a look at Tulsi Gabbard, who I couldn’t help but notice you gave zero coverage because you’re also part of the problem.
    Tulsi/Bernie/Gravel 2020, take your pick. They’re the only ones fighting for the people and not corporate interests.

    Well, we saw what happened in 2016 when the media shoved Hillary down everyone's throats despite the fact that she was one of the most disliked and untrusted major party candidates in history who could not even defeat one of the least qualified candidates in history. Instead of repeating that mistake, the process has to go through without interference by the media or by self-serving comedians.

  • Sitarya

    Biden is all about energy, and that appeals to the electoral unconscious and it's emotional biases. If we were a rational species hiring someone for the most important job on Earth, we would choose EW, or Bernie.

    The only way to throw your vote away is to not vote for the person you want. so long as we keep doing this, both parties will keep giving us progressively worse candidates. because, obviously, they can. look in the mirror if we want someone to blame.

  • Ulyssess
    Ulyssess Month ago

    The thing is that Gillibrand and Harris are both already bought up by Wall Street. It doesn't matter they're females, they're both corrupt. Warren is the real hope, and her background backs her up. Sanders is the only one whose background supports his platform. Biden has a long baggage ranging from mass incarceration policies he championed till the latest scandal in Ukrania that involves his son Hunter profiting from corrupting maneuvers. He's no candidate! Sanders is our champion!

  • Eric Brinkman

    I'm not super worried about all the media love for Biden, because he's not a good debater. He is going to get destroyed as soon as he has to debate ANY of the other democratic candidates.

    That said SB's point about the Biden hogging the media attention is a real problem. If Jeb had continued to hog the media attention aware from Drumpf, he probably wouldn't be president. He got (and continues to get) billions of dollars of free coverage from the media. So all that free airtime that good ol' uncle Joe is getting to describe cartoons is hurting us in the sense that they could be using that airtime to cover policy, which is how a Dem will actually defeat Drumpf in an election.
