“Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has had the “luxury of being a complete long shot” so far in the race to be the U.S. Democratic presidential candidate, President Barack Obama said in an interview published by Politico on Monday.

Obama said both Sanders and Clinton, his former Secretary of State, share similar views on core issues like income inequality, but said Clinton faces the disadvantage of being a well-known commodity “in a culture in which new is always better.”

“I think Bernie came in with the luxury of being a complete long shot and just letting loose,” Obama said in the interview with the political news website. “I think Hillary came in with the both privilege and burden of being perceived as the front-runner,” he said.”

  1. How will Bernie bring change when he hasn't accomplished anything in his whole 30 year career

  2. Obama was probably worried that a president with fire in his belly might be better than he was.

  3. Because Obama is a fool, a hack, and a traitor to the Liberal values that have always been the key ally of the Labor movement in the US.

  4. Obama was to the left of Hillary but the so-called president's club will always support the candidate they think is more likely to win the nomination/election.

  5. Obama will support whoever his bosses in the Bilderberg group want, and that has been Hillary. But of course she should GO AWAY.

  6. Go trump the jobs president. Check out the homeless black woman living in trump tower for the last nine years free on u tube.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  7. Obama think Americans not ready yet more about party than let's Americans decision

  8. Lol, Obama did the exact same thing as Bernie did and beat the shit out of Clinton, but he's not entirely loyal to the tribe, so I'm just gonna support Clinton who is a horrible candidate.

  9. Politics is dirty business. What embodies dirt and filth more than the young turks?

  10. I supportSocialist because SOLAR, ROBOT , COMPUTER will hurt old economysystem.

  11. DISLIKE Obama and Clinton because too UGLY!!!

  12. So, let me get this straight. Obama thinks Hillary is a Progressive because she has fought against people who criticize her. Lovely.

  13. Sanders been vetted? 😂😂😂😂

  14. Both Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton were "Reagan-lite," and Bernie Sanders is the modern Eugene Debs & Norman Thomas Socialists. We need more of that Debsian-Thomas tradition.

    BERNIE SANDERS 2020!!!

  15. He had to to support her. Bernie is a dreamer/ quack ! All the shit he talks about sounds great, it just won't work. Reality is people have to work to have stuff. There s no free ride, somebody has to pay. Communism looks great n paper; human nature makes it fail every time.

  16. Did you guys hear the contempt while he was praising her!! LMAO He can't even believe it…

  17. almost 700k views? Damn. Crazy how much election years get them views.
    Makes sense, but damn, that's up like 300% from off season years

  18. One Belt One Road to the Promised Land! Westward Ho! "We come from the land of Ice and Snow! Drive our Hordes to the New Land! Valhalla! We are coming!" The Mediterranean or Bust! Westward Ho! The People's Republic of China has 100 times the GDP of Israel. The People's Republic of China can afford to purchase controlling shares of Israeli Companies and are doing so. Retiring Israelis will be offered free Housing in a Retirement Community of their Choice: Paris, Venice, Munich, Las Vegas, Hollywood and so on.

  20. "He campaigns like Bernie but governs like Hillary" … nicely put

  21. This is totally biased, does anyone not know what Hillary has done for us during her years in public service?!

  22. You all were totally nuts. Don't get me wrong. Hillary is a war criminal, a warmonger, a liar, a thief, and a money launderer. Having said that, she would have been FAR FAR more progressive than President Trump. Does anyone doubt that she would have filled Scalia's seat with a liberal? Maybe not a flaming, bomb throwing liberal, but a Breyer-ish type who would have upheld virtually all the gains of the New Deal and the Warren Era? You purists were insane not to realize the strength that was behind Trump's movement and you let him into the White House. Joke's on ya'll!!! CBZ

  23. Because Obama is an idiot who entrusted his legacy TO A CRIMINAL.
