“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.”
