  1. Jeb Bush:

    I've got a story to tell and he doesn't and that's the difference. He kind of validated the weakness of his campaign. Now, having said that, what I feel uncomfortable about is that he's a great guy and he's my friend and I admire him, i think I'm more ready to be President. Part of this is comparing and contrasting. I don't feel good when a friend is getting beaten up. I don't feel good about it at all.

  2. Jason Johnson:

    As entertaining as it was during the last debate -- and frankly as therapeutic it was for people, myself included -- to watch Marco engage in his old locker room glory days of trading insults and following up the next week talking about the size of Donald Trump's hands -- it's not going to get the job done, what's going to get the job done is contrasting in a presidential way with Donald Trump.

  3. Kayleigh McEnany:

    This President will always put America first, This President will always protect American citizens. We will not see diseases like the coronavirus come here, we will not see terrorism come here. And isn't that refreshing when contrasting it with the awful presidency of President Obama ?

  4. Erik Jones:

    They have completely contrasting messages, where Trump has argued for 'America first,' Emmanuel Macron is arguing for a kind of cosmopolitan globalist vision of France and of Europe, that is going to create very sharp contrast when the two meet in France.

  5. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders:

    So my suggestion is, I think one of the reasons Donald Trump has been able to move so far to the right is that there is no primary opposition to Donald Trump, and I think it would do this country a good deal of service if people started thinking about candidates out there to begin contrasting what is a progressive agenda as opposed to what President Obama is doing, i think one of the reasons that President Obama has moved as far to the right as President Obama has is President Obama thinks President Obama can go all the way and no one will stand up to President Obama.
