Even with Bernie Sanders losing the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton, Cenk Uygur has a few more things to say to Hillary Clinton.

If she had any sense at all, she'd pick Warren. It's a no-brainer and a layup. That's why Hillary Clinton won't pick her. Wall Street wouldn't like her either. Plus, like Trump, Clinton has a huge ego and Warren is a star, so I'd be surprised if she picked another star.

He's just like Obama, except he's even more establishment than Obama was. Change on the outside, continuity on the inside. Wall Street LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVESS Booker. "An African-American senator who secretly takes all of our money is everything we want," they say. He's got an excellent chance.
