Hour 1: Cenk hosting. MoveOn.org has come out in support of Bernie Sanders. Their focus on Iowa and NH may put it over the top for him in these 1st two primary states. Talk about the endorsements Bernie and Hillary have compiled so far. Jayar talks about the overtly positive reaction to Hillary Clinton in Iowa after news of Bernie’s surge. Clinton’s response to Sanders’ surge is to attack him on his Wall Street stance. Cenk thinks this is a ridiculous tactic. She also went after him on his single payer promises on health care. Rich Republican donors are complaining about the lack of influence they’re having on the campaign with Super PACs after Citizens United gave them the go ahead to buy elections.
