  1. Hey, Chris here — who would your dream 2020 candidate be?

  2. _What?_
    Is anyone really asking this?🤔

  3. Are we determining our democrat rep by the money behind them? If so, we lost already, politics have not changed

  4. Establishment media know Biden can’t win the primaries and they are afraid of the alternatives ( Bernie & Warren)

      @Craft9841 Big power grab?? Get over yourselves. The Democratic establishment has been grabbing all the power to the exclusion of everyone else in the party. Bernie is the only one who wants to give some of that power back to regular people! Jesus Christ, we’ve towed the line for the warhawk Dems for long enough. It’s time for YOU to tow the line, and back Bernie Sanders or accept Trump or Joe Walsh for another 4 years.

    • @Tim Murphy she doesn’t exist, and you should stop liking your pathetic comments.

  5. The DNC establishment are corrupt and crooked politicians, they only represent the special interests people and corporations.

    • Yes, we need Trump! He only serves himself and ivanka. 4 more years🙋🏼‍♂️

      Those dumb bastards are gonna screw up the impeachment and then screw up the election by screwing all the anti establishment candidates

      I can see it now

  6. As someone who voted for Hillary I think it’s fair to say I want her no where near the 2020 election, her biggest appeal was, that’s she wasn’t Donald Trump. @mikefly320

    • @Jeff Dean <<<<< Who Trump taught to blame minorities, liberals and the media for their failures in life!

      @Real Christian.

      Trump won 39 Of the 50 states the only reason she won the Popular vote is because of California that is only reasons

    • Bring Obama back not Hillary. Only a person of Obama’s character & stature could ever begin to heal America after tRump. Anyone less & the circle will come full circle again & we will still be in the same dilemma.

      Frankie Parton California is in the U.S dumbass🤣4million more democrats voted against trump in past mid terms than his cult😂You poorly educated racist 🤮

  7. Why does CNN hate Bernie Sanders so much? Right, follow the money.

  8. Establishments are wondering more like

  9. NOBODY is asking this. Stay the hell home, Hillary. The money media elite hate Bernie and, to some lesser degree, Warren.

    Establishment Democrats are the reason we got Trump. When will they just get out of the way?

  11. You gotta be the most hated reporter at CNN. And hey, it’s not “Democrats wonder”, it’s Corporate Democrats and Corporate Media who wonder…

  12. All I’m saying is start preparing yourself now Democrats…

    Not even gonna watch this by the title Dems aren’t looking for anyone else we have Bernie! Establishment might be not our problem.

  14. Please no… Hillary needs to stay in the woods, literally.

  15. This seems like this is a question only the media is asking….

    • It is. All the dem candidates making dents are gonna tax the needlessly high earners and they don’t like it. Idk why, its not like they could ever spend it all.

    • They know that Bernie voters and Tulsi voters are bust voters who will not vote for the establishment but still trash and smear them day and night. Crazy world!

    • @younes jorge im a bernie voter who voted for Hillary when I had to. Theres plenty of them. Do you throw blankets like that at conversations about race too?

  16. Hmm, I am not wondering, I will be voting Bernie Sanders, how about them apples.

  17. The establishment on both sides are losing their grip on our government

  18. John Kerry lost to Geroge Bush, for God’s sake!

  19. And his voice changes yet again…it’s amazing. It’s like someone is doing a force choke on his balls..

  20. The only reason to vote democrat is if you’re tired of winning.
