Ben, Jason and Nicole team up to explain why everybody is rooting for Hillary, including Republicans. GOP strategist Nelson Warfield explains that his party “gets a more contemporary devil-figure than Ted Kennedy.” And speaking of devil-figures, Hillary’s advisor Harold Ickes has an eloquent assessment of his old White House rival. “Dick Morris is a lying cocksucker.”

If Gore studies Nixon, “he could end up in the White House after all.”
