Bernie Sanders speaks to the media, Washington, D.C., November 28, 2018 (Al Drago/Bloomberg)
I joined BBC Foyle on Wednesday morning to discuss the entry of Sen. Bernie Sanders into the Democratic field for the 2020 US Presidential election.
We consider the different position for Sanders between 2016, when he was the insurgent trying to displace a single front-runner, Hillary Clinton, and a 2020 campaign where he is one of about 20 hopefuls.
Can Sanders establish that he is the preferred Democrat choice on issues such as health care, education, immigration, and the economy or will a new generation of politicians surpass him?
I think this election is going to turn not upon who promotes these ideas that we need, but upon who is seen as most effective as getting them across and getting them accepted.
