Sept. 25, 2018 -- "Deplorables." "Dregs of society." That's how Hillary Clinton, and now Joe Biden, have referred to the millions of Americans who chose to not vote for a Democratic president in 2016.
Phil Bredesen is trying to run as far away as possible from his own party's standard bearers, past and present. The problem for him, however, is that he was one of their most reliable sources of campaign cash.
Phil's reasoning? In his words: "When people run for office, that's what you do...you help and support your party."
Our question: when it comes to explaining votes for Senate Democrats' liberal agenda, would Phil only say, "that's what you do?"
And just as a reminder, Phil shares Clinton and Biden's disdain for the middle and working classes: he's bragged that he's from a "more sophisticated world" than most Tennesseans, and believes that Congress cares too much about "what voters think."
