Bernie Sanders may have just gotten a game-changing endorsement

In an interview with CNN’s Gloria Berger, Biden said that Sanders is doing “a heck of a job” on the campaign trail, and praised the Vice President’s authenticity and proven track record of sticking to the issue of income inequality. Biden said that Sanders is “speaking to a yearning that is deep and real.”

As Bernie Sanders inches closer and closer to upsetting front-runner Hillary Clinton, he just gained his most powerful supporter yet: Vice President Joe Biden.

In an interview with CNN’s Gloria Berger, Biden said that Sanders is doing “a heck of a job” on the campaign trail, and praised Sander’s authenticity and proven track record of sticking to the issue of income inequality. Biden said that Sanders is “speaking to a yearning that is deep and real.”

“There used to be a basic bargain,” said Biden. “If you contributed to the profitability of an enterprise, you share in that profit, and that’s been broken. Productivity is up and wages are stagnant.”

One of the biggest issues surrounding the Sanders campaign is the supposed “media blackout,” and Berger did little to disprove that perception. Berger only asked about Sanders in relation to Clinton’s campaign, and constantly tried to shift the focus back on Clinton. Biden kept his answer focused on Sanders while also carefully not saying anything negative about Clinton.

When Berger said that Clinton also is attempting to cover income inequality in her campaign, Biden responded that income inequality has always been Sanders’s focus, while Hillary only recently zeroed in on it after Sanders.

Sanders, the former dark horse, is now neck and neck with Clinton in the polls. In New Hampshire, Sanders is leading over Clinton, while he trails by just three points in Iowa.

    Just a heads up but I’m pretty sure that in the second paragraph you called Bernie the Vice President, unless Biden was praising his own authenticity.

    The Vice President praised the Vice President? Confused.

    “Biden said that Sanders is doing “a heck of a job” on the campaign trail, and praised the Vice President’s authenticity…” Does this writer think Bernie is VP???

    Biden has made strong statements in the past about how great female leaders are and how we should foster them. I guess talk is cheap. Why do so many people chafe at the thought of a brilliant, experienced woman in charge? Misogyny is alive and well.

    BTW Bernie seems to be a nice guy. But he has no experience that recommends him for the most powerful job in the world.

    Correction needed: “Biden said that Sanders is doing “a heck of a job” on the campaign trail, and praised the Vice President’s authenticity and proven track record of sticking to the issue of income inequality.” This makes it seem like Sanders is the Vice President, not Biden.

    Bernie has been a senator for many years and was a mayor before that. He actually is much more qualified than Hillary in almost every way. I suggest you do some research into what he has actually done.

    It has nothing to do misogyny. As a woman, I’m voting for who I believe to be the best candidate, Bernie Sanders. His track record CANNOT be beat. I’m enough of a feminist to know that a we’ll have many chances for a capable woman to be president, and it’s insulting to me as a woman to think I would choose a president SOLELY based on sex. It’s not about man vs woman. It’s about voting beyond superficialities.

    Because you just made up the brilliant part and didn’t mention the overweaning corruption

    He was the mayor of Burlington, Vermont for 4 terms. He has experience at managing. And by several accounts, he was successful at it.

    Of course it is. The need to think clearly about the article is way over the heads of the electorate. It’s much easier to just make fun of a simple mistake. That’s the Liberal way. Undeserved guilt is the most powerful weapon in the Liberals arsenal. Use it (make fun of the author who wrote the typo), and the intent of the article goes away. And we can all sing CumBaYa.

    yep that’s all to focus on because the article lind of says what is going on… no need to comment further so you pick apart inconsitencies … I think you are thinking more is being made than actually is

    Bernie Sanders is the only qualified candidate, Sanders is winning the Presidency because of that reason, in spite oof the dirty trickery by the DNC, rotten politics as usual and he is running true to to himself, an effective gentleman. That and the fact that the Republican candidates do not have any more decorum than a sand lot baseball game, name calling, rude face making, unreal. Even children on the 7th grade debate team know you are not supposed to talk while another person is speaking. Its rude and these people want to be a world leader?
