Transcript for Clinton-Warren Split Grows Among Dems
Back now with our politics buzz board. Is there a family feud brewing for democrats? Hello, Iowa! First, check out this headline -- Hillary will likely announce her 2016 run this spring. But not everyone is ready for Hillary. The liberal group likes Elizabeth Warren and says they'll try to draft her into 2016 run. And also buzzing, brand-new hints from Jeb bush. He said he'll release thousands of e-mails from his time as governor, along with an book, could this be a hint of his upcoming decision? Despite this current environment in Washington, you can do big things if you set the stage in the campaign and move forward. And the roundtable is ready to go. Cnn commentator and former house speaker newt Gingrich, Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison, syndicated radio host and ABC news contributor laura Ingraham and Michael smerconish from CNN. I'm going to start with you, speaker Gingrich, books, e-mails, beating the opposition research, do you think Jeb bush is running? Probably. One of 10, 12 people. We have a lot of runners, not a front-runner. Jeb bush is not a front-runner. There are no front-runners. This is going to be a wide-open race since 1940. If he gets in, what happens immediately? I have no idea. I think an enormous amount of boredom. Okay, that was just scintillating -- boredom, laura? I disagree with newt in this fashion, there's going to be one establishment candidate and all of these conservatives running. So, if there's a number of conservatives running and there's one establishment candidate, the establishment almost always win. If Jeb has all the money, the whole bush network, which is massively powerful, I don't care what anyone says, it's going to take one conservative to challenge him. Five? Just look at the electoral map. Very difficult. You have to look at the electoral map and it's very difficult. Let's look at our Facebook senti-meter. 48% positive. 44% of it negative. I don't disagree for this reason. First of all, there's not be an established candidate. Chris Christie is going to seek that title. You'll have at least five governors running who can raise real money. 2008 was a very interesting example, McCain was totally broke, he had no money, and everybody else kept failing and McCain emerged as the candidate -- How did that work out? I'm saying, politics -- That's an issue. Primary and the general. Lots of things happen between now and then. Cyber warfare against Sony. Isis. Let's go to the democrats. Lot of things will happen. Representative Ellison, I want to put up your tweet from this week -- Ppçv "America is built on bold ideas and senator Elizabeth Warren is full of them. Exciting effort by move on to elevate her Progressive ideals. #Runwarrenrun. Will you support her over Hillary? I do think it's important that we have a robust discussion about how -- which candidate can carry the mantle of American working people the best, who can help close this dramatic income inequality that so many Americans are suffering from, who will be able to get people to the polls and excite people. So, I'm not signing up for any candidate yet, but I do think that Elizabeth Warren represents an exciting possibility. I want to go to Michael smerconish, we saw more than 300 Obama campaign staffers are calling for Elizabeth Warren to get into the race, what do you think? I think secretary Clinton need a main event, senator Warren is a main event. She poses a lethal challenge to senator Clinton in a primary, what she needs, meaning senator Clinton, is a Barry sanders.
