"BIG COUNTRY POLITICS" ON KTAB CONTINUES ALL RIGHT, WELCOME BACK TO "BIG COUNTRY POLITICS

" A FAMILIAR FACE WITH US, DR PAUL FABRIZIO WITH McMURRY UNIVERSITY, POLITICAL SCIENCE PROFESSOR OVER THERE THANK YOU, AGAIN FOR BEING HERE IT'S GOOD TO BE HERE IT'S A BIG DAY FOR US BECAUSE WE JUST GOT DONE WITH SUPER TUESDAY

WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE RACES TO COME IN MAY, TWO MORE RACES TO COME AND THEN THE BIG ONE IN NOVEMBER I GUESS THEY'RE ALL BIG AREN'T THEY? DEPENDS ON YOUR PERSPECTIVE BUT WE WENT THROUGH PROBABLY THE SECOND BIGGEST RACE OF THE YEAR WAS SUPER TUESDAY AND NEXT ONE, THE BIGGEST, OF COURSE, IS THE NOVEMBER ELECTION SO — AND THEN THERE'S THE LOCAL ELECTIONS WHICH WILL BE IN MAY AND RUNOFFS, THAT SORT OF STUFF

THAT'S RIGHT AND I WANT TO START WITH SUPER TUESDAY EVEN THOUGH WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT IT ON SUPER TUESDAY WE WERE LIVE ON FACEBOOK FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE WATCHING AS THE RESULTS ROLLED IN, WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST SURPRISE FOR YOU ON SUPER TUESDAY? IF THERE WAS ONE? THERE WAS

IT WAS HOW WELL JOE BIDEN DID A BIG PRIZE FOR EVERYBODY IT CERTAINLY IS YOU LOOKED WHAT HAPPENED SINCE THEN, MIKE BLOOMBERG DROPPED OUT OF THE RACE AND ELIZABETH WARREN DROPPED OUT OF THE RACE SO WE'RE BASICALLY DOWN TO A TWO-PERSON RACE AND WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THIS WOULD HAVE OCCURRED TWO WEEKS AGO? WELL, EVEN ON SUPER TUESDAY WHEN WE WERE LIVE ON FACEBOOK, WE WERE BASICALLY JUST TALKING ABOUT BIDEN AND SANDERS WEREN'T WE? WES WE SURE WERE, BECAUSE BIDEN JUST DID SO MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT WAS EXPECTED

HE'S BASICALLY TIED, IF YOU WILL, CALIFORNIA WE'RE STILL WAITING FOR CALIFORNIA'S FINAL, FINAL VOTES BUT BASICALLY, THEY'RE GOING INTO THE NEXT CONTEST TIED IN THE DELEGATES AND NOBODY EXPECTED THAT TO HAPPEN AND SO THAT MEANS THAT BIDEN REALLY BECAUSE OF THE CONTESTS THAT ARE COMING UP, THEY'RE FILLED WITH VOTERS WHO BIDEN IS MORE ATTRACTIVE TO BIDEN IS IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT GOING INTO THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

I'VE SEEN AN INTERVIEW SINCE SUPER TUESDAY WITH BIDEN HE SAID HE WASN'T SURPRISED PICKING UP THE SOUTHERN STATES IT WAS THOSE NORTHERN STATES THAT HE WAS SURPRISED AT AND I THINK EVERYONE WAS MINNESOTA AND THE BIG ONE OF COURSE, MASSACHUSETTS

HE MENTIONED THAT, HE SAID — SO ELIZABETH WARREN'S HOME STATE, BERNIE SANDERS'S RIGHT NEXT DOOR SO YOU FIGURED ONE OF THOSE TWO WAS GOING TO WIN IT AND THEN BIDEN CAME OUT ON TOP AND FOR ELIZABETH WARREN THAT WAS THE END OF HER CAMPAIGN IF SHE CAN'T WIN HER HOME STATE, WHY IS SHE IS IN RACE? WHAT DOES SANDERS NEED TO DO? THAT IS — THAT'S A REALLY TOUGH QUESTION FOR HIM HE TALKS ABOUT EXPANDING THE ELECTORATE

WE TALKED ABOUT BEING ATTRACTIVE TO AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTERS HE HASN'T PROVED IT YET HE TALKS ABOUT BEING MULTIGENERATIONAL GOING AFTER OLDER VOTERS, MIDDLE-AGED AND YOUNGER VOTES HE HASN'T DONE IT YET THAT'S WHAT HE NEEDS TO DO

HE NEEDS TO HAVE HIS ACTIONS MATCH HIS WORDS AND HE HASN'T BEEN ABLE TO DO IT AND EVEN DEEPER, HE HASN'T DONE AS WELL AS HE DID FOUR YEARS AGO SO BECAUSE HE'S NOT DOING AS WELL AS HE DID FOUR YEARS AGO, WHAT REASON DO PEOPLE HAVE TO THINK THAT THAT'S GOING TO CHANGE? AND I THINK THE DEMOCRATIC ESTABLISHMENT SEES IT AND THEY'RE SAYING JOE BIDEN IS OUR PERSON WELL, YOU MENTIONED THE DEMOCRATIC ESTABLISHMENT WHAT HAS CHANGED THERE IN THE LAST FOUR OR SO — DURING THE LAST CAMPAIGN, WHAT HAS CHANGED FOR SANDERS? WHY IS HE NOT DOING AS WELL? SANDERS, THIS IS GOING TO SOUND STRANGE, BUT SANDERS IS OLD NEWS

I MEAN, WHAT IS HE SAYING TODAY THAT WAS DIFFERENT THAN FOUR YEARS AGO? EXCEPT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT DONALD TRUMP I MEAN, HE HAS THE SAME CONSISTENT MESSAGE AND SOMETIMES, THE AMERICAN VOTERS WANT TO HEAR SOMETHING NEW AND I'M NOT SURE THAT HE WILL BE ABLE TO DO THAT BIDEN — YOU KNOW, BIDEN IS A COMFORTABLE SHOE THAT YOU WEAR, IT FEELS GOOD HE'S NOT GOING TO BE A RADICAL CHANGE OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT

AND SO IN A CERTAIN SENSE HE DOESN'T HAVE ANYTHING NEW, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, HE'LL BE NEW COMPARED TO TRUMP IF HE WINS AND I'M NOT SURE IF ANYBODY IS FOLLOWING THAT, BUT THERE'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO WELL, YOU'RE SAYING THE PROBLEM WITH SANDERS IS THAT HE'S OLD NEWS HE HASN'T CHANGED AND THAT'S HIS PROBLEM BUT YOU'RE ALSO SAYING BY THE SAME TOKEN THAT BIDEN IS LIKE AN OLD SHOE

KIND OF THE SAME — SANDERS IS NOT COMFORTABLE SANDERS IS NOT COMFORTABLE AND HE DOESN'T TRY TO MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE BIDEN'S CAMPAIGN IS PREMISED AROUND THE FACT THAT HE IS NOT DONALD TRUMP HE IS NOT THE ANGRY BERNIE SANDERS

SO THEREFORE, THAT'S THE MESSAGE WE HAVEN'T HEARD IN HOW LONG? I WOULD ARGUE BIDEN'S MESSAGE IS NEW YOU THINK HE'S MIDDLE OF THE ROAD IN THE CONTEXT OF THE POLITICS OF TODAY, HE IS THE MODERATE CANDIDATE THE REAL QUESTION IF THERE'S ANY MODERATE REPUBLICANS IF THEY WOULD MOVE TOWARDS JOE BIDEN, I HAVE NO IDEA, IT'S TOO SOON VERY INTERESTING

SO WHAT'S NEXT FOR ELIZABETH WARREN? SHE DROPPED OUT OF THE RACE SHE DROPPED OUT OF THE RACE HSHE GOES BACK TO BEING A SENATOR SHE DROPPED OUT PROBABLY AT A GOOD TIME BECAUSE IF SHE HAD CONTINUED IN THE RACE, HER EFFECTIVENESS, HER POLITICAL JUDGMENT WOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED INTO QUESTION SHE TRIED THE BEST SHE COULD

HER MESSAGE SIMPLY DIDN'T RESONATE AS THE CAMPAIGN WENT ON SO SHE'LL GO BACK TO BEING A US SENATOR IF THERE IS A BIDEN OR SANDERS ADMINISTRATION, SHE CONCEIVABLY COULD BE IN THE CABINET

SHE IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY FOR A VICE PRESIDENT THAT WAS MY NEXT QUESTION WHEN WE COME BACK FROM BREAK I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE LOCAL RACES, BUT I WANT TO PUT YOU ON THE SPOT HERE WHO IS THE BEST CONTENDER AS VICE PRESIDENT? WE TALKED ABOUT IT THIS OFF THE AIR ON SUPER TUESDAY

DO WE WANT TO DO IT NOW? WELL, I WANT TO DO IT NOW BEFORE WE CAN'T TO THE LOCAL RACES WHEN WE COME BACK FROM THE BREAK SO WHO'S THE BEST CHOICES? YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT ELIZABETH WARREN FOR VICE PRESIDENT, OF COURSE, IT DEPENDS ON WHO THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IS GOING TO BE SO ELIZABETH WARREN COMES UP, CORY BOOKER, KAMALA HARRIS, ALL OF THEM HAVE GONE OUT IN THE NATIONAL STAGE THEY'VE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL, BUT THEY'VE BEEN OUT IN THE NATIONAL STAGE SO THAT GIVES THEM A LEG-UP OVER OTHER PEOPLE

THEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMAN FROM GEORGIA, STACY A BRAMS SOME PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT HUMANNIAN CASTRO AND THEN YOU THINK ABOUT MAYBE AMY KLOBUCHAR, AND THEN YOU CAN CREATE A LONG LIST OF MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, A COUPLE OF PEOPLE IN THE SENATE WHO MIGHT BE OUT THERE WHAT YOU KNOW FOR SURE IS IS THAT IT WILL NOT BE A WHITE MALE WELL, A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE WATCHING RIGHT NOW ARE ASKING THE TV WHAT ABOUT BETO O'ROURKE? BETO O'ROURKE IS A WHITE MALE

I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT WHOEVER THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE IS WILL CHOOSE A WHITE MALE THE PARTY PRIDES ITSELF ON ITS DIVERSITY SO THE LAST THING IT WANTS IN COMPETING AGAINST DONALD TRUMP AND MIKE PENCE IS TO HAVE TWO WHITE MEN OUT THERE SO I THINK IF YOU'RE A WHITE MALE, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE A VICE PRESIDENT CHOICE SO YOU THINK ABOUT WOMEN, YOU THINK ABOUT MEMBERS OF MINORITY GROUPS

ALL RIGHT WHEN WE COME BACK ON "BIG COUNTRY POLITICS," WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE LOCAL RESULTS AND THE RACES UPCOMING WE'LL BE BACK ON "BIG COUNTRY POLITICS"
