Frozen on the big screen of the television in the living room was Bennett's recent viral performance breaking the Republican Senator Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate. In his speech, Bennett, a motivated legislator who talks to pragmatic optimism, says passionately about the closure of the government and raises his voice when he accuses Cruz of "crocodile tears" for the fact that he once used tactics himself. ] This performance, which many in the living room Helen Warner said on Thursday, denies Bennett's self-tolerance, which even senator acknowledged.
"I'm glad you do not play now," he said to a little. audience, "because I would say," God, I do not want to go with this guy. "
The explosive moment of Bennet last month became his calling card, which gives the senator an opportunity to speak with groups that are somewhat short. Would it be less clear if it was enough to launch it in a field that is already being broken by presidential candidates.
"I do not think it determines my time in the Senate," said Bennett CNN, sitting on the couch Warner, he is "beautiful" from the fact that people first learned about him from a speech.
"It's just one language, but it gives me the feeling that there are people who are open to this message and there are people who simply report
For those who consider support for the possible running of Bennet, the performance was as good a start as any other, which one is different.
presented him, "said Barnet, 70, the lead event of Bennet's first event. "I was sitting and looking at all this, and then I came back and looked at YouTube … I probably had a look at it for four to six weeks in full."
"This was a moment for me," said Kim. Mangers, a 59-year-old Democrat from Dubyuk. "It made me feel that he was there for people."
Even with the encouragement of such people as Warner and Mangers, the next task of Bennet convinces voters that his attractive language was not the beginning and end. what he can offer in a growing field of Democrats who run for the opportunity to take over President Donald Trump.
Bennett is not ready to say what makes him better than those Democrats, many of whom are his colleagues in the Senate ̵
"When I'm ready, I'll let you know," he said.
The Colorado Democrat also said that he congratulated a great field – "My gaze is more fun," he said, "and believes that he will strengthen a possible candidate.
But when he thinks, or he needs to manage himself, he suggested one difference between him and a number of other candidates: geography.
This should be obvious to everyone, but geographically, I'm just one state away from this, "Bennett said, from only Nebraska's Iowa Department of Colorado.
As he passed through Iowa, Bennett entered the Saturday Sabbath on an area outside of Winterset, a city known for the book and Madison County's Bridges. Even for democratic activists who are prone to party politics, he needs an introduction.
"Hi, I'm Michael Bennett," he says again and again, moving from group to group.
Vicki Brenner, who was the master of Bennet at his family's home, tried to help people make familiar communication and sign up to his progressive powers.
"Like many of you, I've seen the video!" said Brenner, when she introduced the senator. "How many of you saw him take him to Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate?"
Several hands climbed into the room about three dozen people, and their heads nodded in response.
Bennett throws himself into a pragmatic legislator who has a progressive record of voting, but also knows what is needed to win an electoral split, for example, in Colorado. He relies heavily on the roots of his education – he was the head of the Denver School of Public Administration before joining the Senate in 2009 – and calls education "one of the greatest challenges" facing the country.
t in politics, economic opportunities and many other things, his answers are long – as a senator, who is not suddenly limited to hours of committee hearings.
"I apologize," he said on one Saturday after a conversation on such a length had to go before he could answer all the questions in the room.
He talks about how Washington should be, not how it is. He tells more about the Capitol than the White House.
He also does not take a firm stand on some of the central issues that are guided by the discussions of the campaign. When the voter asks if he is worried that the party is far too far to the left, it does not directly answer, but calls for the creation of coalitions to make progress.
"I'm not going to make a decision anyway, on the Green New Year," he said, asking the voter for a plan that shares some Democrats with his practicality. "I do not say anything negative about the Green New Deal in any way."
For some, though, the Bennet field makes him "moderate" as one woman in Iowa called him during a session question and answer on Thursday.
Bennett shuddered with a nickname.
"Well," he said, before describing herself as a "pragmatic idealist."
"One who thinks they are progressive must have and he is interested in advancement, "he said. Political proposals fit into the progression of his party, his view on Medicare for All – a broad health plan that supplants Senator Berni Sanders and many other candidates for 2020 – more than centrist, the fact that the senator
"I am concerned about this bill," he said, noting he was worried about the bill "Medicare for All", which would support Sanders to employer insurance plans that have most American countries. "I do not think it's a good starting point."
If he enters the race – the decision he said on CNN on Saturday that he will do "soon" – he will undoubtedly be pushed to take a specific position on progressive plans such as the Green New Deal.
Because many of his compatriot democrats are already looking for a party's candidacy, the fact that he is investigating his own proposal raises questions about what he considers to be absent in this area. 19659002] "I'm not sure that this is about nothing. I think it's just a moment in history when we have a billion people on our side and I think it's good," Bennett said in an interview. . "I think this was a tragedy for us to lose Donald Trump – it's unfair that we lost Donald Trump. We have to find a way back, not just to win, but also to lead the country."
