Sanders says age, gender, sexuality could all be construed as 2020 obstacles

Sanders says age, gender, sexuality could all be construed as 2020 obstacles

Warren said last week that during a private meeting between the two in 2018, Sanders did not agree that a woman could win the presidency - an indictment that he strongly denies.

That has raised deeper questions about societal misogyny that female candidates have to overcome. Elizabeth Warren, who is seeking support from women as she, Sanders and other candidates vie for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The Vermont senator said that a generation ago, most people would have said it was doubtful an African American could be elected president, as Barack Obama was in 2008 and 2012.

"It breaks my heart", said Kathy Staub, 62, a Sanders backer said of the tension between the two senators.

"There ain't no ideal candidate out there", Sanders said. All of us have got to do the best. The candidate who has the largest and widest spectrum of first-time participants has very good chances of winning. "What is the life record of that campaign".

A Sanders organizer was driven out of half a dozen nursing homes that are typically used as satellite caucus locations after appearing for conversations with residents, Rebik said.

Democrats have spent years blasting President Donald Trump as a sexist for the way he talks about and treats women. "I thought a woman could win; he disagreed", she said. As the candidates moved to shake hands with each other, Warren evaded Sanders' outstretched hand as she approached him.

NHPR: I guess just one more question on this.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said Sunday that "the world has changed" and that American voters are now more concerned with a presidential candidate's positions than their gender or racial identity. And to those people who think that a woman can not be elected you're dead wrong.

I was told that this could be a reason why it happened, "he said, referring to the condition of the eyesight". Royal Caribbean calls Anello's actions "irresponsible and reckless" in the new court documents.

Sanders: Look, the answer is yes. "I have never married in Iowa, but it is particularly important to me this year".

What they're saying: "There are a lot of people who say I like Bernie, he's a nice guy, but he's 78 years of age", Sanders said.

In Portsmouth, Sanders said, "What the march of women is, and what we're all about, says it's the women of this country who have the right to control their bodies, not politicians". "So everybody brings some negatives, if you'd like".

Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont on Sunday encouraged American voters to "took at the totality of a candidate" rather than their gender amid his recent feud with fellow progressive 2020 candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren from MA. You know, nobody is ideal. there ain't no flawless candidate out there. I've been doing this stuff for decades.

"Because I looked at you and I looked at him and I'm like, he did that".

"I think you called me a liar on national TV", she repeated. Some of you don't.

Warren was repeatedly enraged when she was asked by reporters about the scuffle, responding, "I have nothing else to say about it". That's what I do.

Though Chloe Sokolov always considered herself a Bernie supporter, the 25-year-old bartender at Eatery A, a popular Des Moines restaurant, plans to caucus for the first time this year in part because Sanders' campaign convened more than 50 service industry workers to discuss their economic challenges. So everybody has their advantages. All I would ask of voters is take a look at the totality of the candidacy, of the person.
