He might not be a visionary, but yes I would like to wake up two weeks in a row not having to even think about who my president is and be able to only worry about my day to day life for those two weeks. I haven't had such two weeks since 2016…

Let there be no doubt, McConnel and co. have used DT as a distraction to get their evil agenda across. If anything we need to put as much, if not more effort in getting him out of office than DT. DT is a self-absorbed bully. McConnel is downright evil.

Michael Bennet: We aren’t making progress due to a lack of imaginative or exciting ideas. We are ignoring the exciting and imaginative ideas that have PROVEN TO WORK in the rest of the first world nations who put a greater priority on their society than their corporations and their militaries. We are failing to make progress because it is in the best interests of the corporations and the wealthy and entrenched politicians that we keep allowing a FOR-PROFIT healthcare system and a FOR-PROFIT education system AND the continued ass-kissing of the NRA CULT and the weapons manufacturers they protect. It’s… Read more »

Michael Bennet's ideas are NOT progressive. A Congress that works? No shit, Sherlock. If "many Republicans" are saying 'he knows how to write laws', it means they're being written in a way that "many Republicans" can agree with. Affordable Care Act was originally a Heritage Foundation (Conservative think-tank) idea, and Romney got it passed in his state, but when President Obama proposed it, NOT A SINGLE Republican voted for it. So if "many Republicans" can agree on Michael Bennet laws, that clearly puts him to the right of centrist President Obama. Fact is, he's just a beat-Trump dead-center centrist. A… Read more »

Isn’t the concept of self governance antithetical to the idea that we need a large federal government telling us how to govern ourselves?

A lot of good democratic candidates this time around. Really hope the DNC doesn't force Biden down our throats. I think Biden is fine, but I would much rather see Bernie, Pete, Yang or Bennet on the ticket. Biden just has too much of a past that the RNC is going to dig up and spin against him and I don't think he's got his head on quite right.

Trevor, thank you so much for having these candidates on your show and allowing them the time to speak so we can really hear their views. Watching them on your show is so much better than the goofy debates they've been through so far! <3

It is always darkest before the dawn. There is a new breed of politician emerging. At least in the Democratic party. Step aside Pelosi, Biden.

Nice, unfortunately until proved wrong ny history, this guy's too smart and pragmatic to be elected into the whitehouse. Very good people are mostly bad at elections, at least in the US and also lately in EU, while the worst seem to be best performing. We get the President we deserve.

This guy sucks. Stay in senate. We are tired of going for inches. Tired of o hey here’s a little tiny incremental change be happy. Because the wealthy don’t do anything in increments. The military industrial complex does nothing incrementally. So why when it comes to things that benefit 99% of Americans we need to be happy with a little. We want Universal healthcare and we want it now! We want free college and we want it now. As those are human rights. Nothing less will do. So gtfoh

Michael Bennet will take away so many republican voters from Trump simply because he is so well known for working across the aisle. I think if more people get to know what he actually stands for instead of the stupid speed dating debates, he would be further along. They really should of taken more days and less people for each debate. I never knew from watching the debates that he wanted universal healthcare with a public option because they never give him the chance to speak.
