9:02 am
mental movie theater now and a couple of years. >> with the exception of maybe a children's film. >> life as change. >> the presidential race has changed, let's begin with that. just this morning, former vice president joe biden officially announced he will be seeking the democratic presidential nomination, he is running against president trump. biden posted 3.5 minute video on social media, he focused on the violence in child, virginia in 2017, that's where a large gathering of white nationalists and counter protesters turned violent when a man rammed his car into an opposition group. killing 32-year-old heather higher, biden noted that president trump said there were very fine people on both sides in the charlottesville. >> those words, the president of the united states, assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate, and those with the courage to stand against it. in that moment, i knew the threat to this nation was unlike any i had ever seen in my lifetime. >> nearly 2 dozen democrats are
9:03 am
running for president and we are still 41 weeks away from the iowa caucuses, the former teacher vice president and six are senator from delaware enters as the front runner in nearly all national polls, this morning's campaign video, biden says that voters give president trump eight years in office, it could alter the character of our nation. >>, america is an idea, an idea that stronger than any army, more powerful than any dictator or tyrant. it gives hope to the most desperate people on earth, it guarantees everyone is treated with dignity, and gives hate no safe harbor. it instills in every person in this country the belief that no matter where you start in life, there's nothing you can't achieve, if you work at it. >> biden's first public scheduled event is monday and pittsburgh, pennsylvania, that's where stick to members of the teamsters union about rebuilding the middle class.
9:04 am
he will travel to early primary and caucus states where advisors say to lay out a vision bringing americans together in a polarized time. the president is already attacking biden come early this morning the president tweeted, welcome to the race, sleepy joe, i hope you have the intelligence to wage a successful primary campaign, it will be nasty, you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick and demented ideas. if you make it, i will see you at the starting gate. >> and setbacks for the president's allies have warned that biden might be a threat to reelection, let's talk more about that with the of politics, james taylor. >> thank you. >> joe biden has been leading the polls, a lot of democrats are hinging on the word electability, joe can maybe get it done, is that what is going to win more people? >> the democrats are deciding, what their differences are, their policy differences, the primary number 1 is defeating donald trump, then they can sort out the differences. i think that's kind of close
9:05 am
rank approach that they are going to take with donald trump. >> don't joe biden is a threat, yes or no, this is the question because of his appeal to white, working-class, specifically in the midwest where president trump was successful in that 2016 bid? >> 125,000 votes, donald trump one across three states by 75,000 votes, joe biden, by name recognition alone, covers that, and i think the democrats have to come up with a appeal, that the democrats can't focus on the big idea, they've got to focus on specific communities and groups in terms of development, so i think joe biden is that authentic, real blue-collar guy, he's the real thing, he is really a joe, last time around with donald trump, we have the guy from ohio, they called him joe, this is a real joe, who made good and became a senator and a vice president two times, so he's a regular guy, made good, where donald
9:06 am
trump, please try to pretend>> throw in one democratic candidate, is bernie sanders liberalism or on trend with the democratic party today? who's got the lease? >> there's a five headed monster that is the democratic party including nancy losey having control over the congressional democrats, but obama, clinton, joe biden, and bernie sanders have to win over the democratic party, that all has to be set out in the competition, the competition of the campaign itself will sort it out, joe biden is the one right now, bernie's number 2, this is kind of a repeat of 2016, the establishment democrat versus the resurgent candidacy of bernie sanders, we are kind of back in 2016 again. >> you mentioned alexandria ocasio-cortez, she's getting a lot of support crossed the country, she's bringing what many see as in a new idyllic to
9:07 am
the party, does this slow the new resurgence of some of the young voters? >> it would in normal times, in a normal political environment, there would be a push to make joe biden become more amenable to their insurgent, but donald trump is the x factor, and i think people might want just the opposite, that mainstream democrats are not the young, the young have not had a real impact on the political process since the 70s, to be honest, it's where nancy losey is, and i think that's where most democrats are going to be in terms of the safeness of joe biden. >> a known quantity, is really an extension of obama, he's an extension of hillary clinton, too, if you're a progressive young person, joe biden is not your fantasy candidate, but
9:08 am
those who are actually going to show up in the polls in november are going to be older people, and they want normalcy again. that's where joe biden might come in handy as a normal, known quantity. >> i was going to ask you, professor, if there was one thing to derail his candidacy, would it be his age? that the problem is, you have donald trump is the oldest present president in history and it didn't bother them, bernie sanders is being taken seriously, and they say we wish you were 20 years younger and he has all the best ideas that all people are coming behind them, taking off his ideas and they are not bringing authenticity that bernie has, so again, even with, even bernie sanders is better than donald trump to citrus immigrants, i assume. because bernie sanders may be as much of a problem for mainstream eurocrats as donald trump, ideologically, but trump and bernie sanders are tapping into a populace insurgency something is wrong in america and the parties have these two outsiders, basically as the main players, so joe biden coming in, trying to bring us
9:09 am
back to the 70s, 80s, 2000, old- school party politics, as much as he is a known quantity, that can also undermine him because we know of his gaffes, we know of the anita hill., we know his position on busing and others things. >> is called baggage. >> it's a blessing and a curse to have biden, he's the one guy who can definitely be donald trump. the problem is the democrats are so divided amongst themselves in terms of what they want for these times that they may see joe biden as much of a problem and nancy pelosi as much of a problem as they do trump, for different reasons, that might split the party in november. >> the first campaign event, monday in pittsburgh. >> thank you. new developments in the case of a sunnyvale man who investigators say deliberately drove his car right into a group of people. >> good morning again, new
