12:31 pm
becka. he leaves behind a wife and three children. and iraq, a major battle could be in the works there. the iraqi military saying it's preparing to recapture the city of fallujah from isis and is warning residents to leave before the fighting begins. the u.s. led coalition has been carrying out air strikes near mosul as well as fallujah ahead of the planned assault. now back to "journal editorial report." >> i i should tell you that there are a lot of politicians saying bernie sanders should drop out..
12:32 pm
let me be clear. i agree with you. we are into the last task. >> welcome to the journal editorial report. a defiant bernie sanders vowing to stay in the democratic presidential race until the bitter end despite a growing course on the left urnling him to pack it in. sanders iss running stronger against donald trump than hillary clinton. could he be the better bet for democrats come november? let'smn ask "wall street journa columnist dan enninger, dorothy rabinowitz and columnist james james, the democratic establishment is now n turning bernie sanders. why are they falling out of love? >> i think sanders is reminding them of the party's real problem which is mrs. clinton.
12:33 pm
they don't want to think about howl difficult it will be to ru with her. she was supposed to have a coronation. he was supposed to be a minor candidate. the reason he's done well is because of hillary clinton. >> they want him to get out so right away she can focus on trump. >> and so they don't haveri to worry about her as much. >> what about the argument that the sanders people are making that somehow he's being treated unfairly. that he's not getting the love he deserves because of how well he's done. they all walk around perceiving a world full of the system is rigged. this is a fuel. is it a fair point? >> no. this is an election contest. this is exactly what happened
12:34 pm
wh when. bernie sanders is not terribly different from donald trump. they will not question behavior, as you can see. >> he's won three of the last four major states. >> kentucky was very close. is this a case of democrats having buyers' remorse at the end of the campaign about hillary clinton though she's likely to be the nominee. i can see it here. the fact is the intense dislike of mrs. clinton set into this story. he's the real victor going to be. g obviously she has the nomination as sheon keeps saying, keeps beg censored for saying. the polls say sanders does better against donald trump than hillary clinton does. could he be the better general
12:35 pm
election candidate? >> i think he could. the headee to heads have been there for months. i think what it represents is a generic candidate against trump. hillary is the one who barely beats him. if the candidate were joe biden, john kerry, i think in a head to head they would be 10% ahead of trump. >> i would suggest maybe hillary clinton is the only democrat that could lose to donald trump. how does she get bernie sanders and his supporters on board? >> sanders isn't being cheated out of the nomination. that's a ridiculous claim. however, if his supporters feel he's being cheated out of the nomination that's a political problem for the democrats anyway. peggy noonan proposes that mrs.
12:36 pm
clinton should consider making sanders her running mate in order to keep the party together and bring his supporters on board. >> i have a 70-year-old ticket. >> 144 years between them. i first thought it was a ridiculous idea. reading peggy's column, i felt like the logic was compelling. >> i know you don't agree. >> well, you know, wait for the american people to get a full blast of the bernie sanders, a man of the left to put it mildly, for whom the entire american history has been poisoned his entire life. this is what's there for bernie sanders. when you listen to him, why are you bothering me about the violence of my followers? we are fighting for a better world. this is the 1960s. of course we are bombing -- >>ca you don't think sanders wod help hillary clinton? >> it would be an endless battle. >> how does she get his
12:37 pm
supporters?on sure, you will h give him a big spot. influence of platform, he's already influenced her agenda in a major way on trade, taxes and health care. so many things. how does she mobilize voters so they come out instead of staying home? >> she could gong up in front o the cameras and say, i am a socialist. really. this is the problem. >> that won't help swing voters. >> exactly right. that's why the pundits are upset about bernie. he moved the party to the left. he's locking hillary in to progressive positions to make it impossible for her to pivot to the center in the general election. >> very quickly. >> she moved to the left. the one thing he has that she doesn't have is sincerity. >> still ahead, hillary clinton promisingg to bring in bills to shake up the sluggish economy.
12:38 pm
it's not that party anymore. we'll look at hill onomics coming up. real is touching a ray. amazing is moving like one. real is making new friends. amazing is getting this close. real is an animal rescue. amazing is over twenty-seven thousand of them. there is only one place where real and amazing live. seaworld. real. amazing

12:40 pm
my mmade a simple trip toonic the grocery storesis anything but simple. so i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear, and mhumira can lower your90% cability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask about humira, the #1 prescribed biologic by dermatologists. clearer skin is possible.
12:41 pm
test. test.. test. test. test. it, and especially in places like coal country and inner cities and other parts of our country that have really been left out. >> two for the price of one. that was hillary clinton in kentucky last weekend promising to put her husband in charge of kick starting the economy. it's not bill clinton's democratic party anymore. we are back with dan henninger. mary o'grady and joe rego. putting dollar bill in charge of the economy. smart move? >> we saw the revision. she says now he'll be in charge of the inner cities and coal country. >> what's been m happening in t
12:42 pm
last seven years? >> you know, i think it was an expression of panic. she thought she needed more than what was working for her. the big thing to look at is her unfavorables, untrustworthy poll numbers are at 55, rising toward 60. sheeeded something. she thought she was bringing in the democratic party's most popular democrats. keep in mind this is a guy they call slick willy. if your untrustworthiness numbers are high how does this help? >> she's trying to generate. forget the last 7 years. now that she's committing to the election. let's go back to the '90s, years of good solid growth. >> she's not saying to forget the last seven years but forget the last 5 months. she's been far to the left, competing with bernie sanders, banging the drum about inequality, saying she'll soak the rich and now is looking ahead to be the general.
12:43 pm
she's thinking, okay, i have to move to the enter a little bit. bill clinton oversaw a strong economy after i remind you, the republicans won the house in 1996. >> 1994. >> i'm sorry. she feels like, you know, that's a safe. cover for her so she ca get to the center. >> and the policy, mary's point is the policies are so different from what hillary clinton is proposing now versus what bill clinton pursued in the 1990s. >> the obama era democratic party repudiated the economic agenda. if you look at trade, for example, bill clinton finalized nafta, put china into the world trade organization. now you have hillary running against the pacific trade deal she helped negotiate as secretary of state. if you look at taxes, bill clinton cut the capital gains
12:44 pm
tax rate. proposing then is largest increase in history. there is a contradiction between the rhetoric and reality. >> her narrative is wages are low and people are struggling because the rich are too rich. >>he right. >> that's her narrative. it's not what bill clinton used to manage the economies in the 1990s. >> i would go further. joe mentioned the two most prominent ones. you have entitlements. bill clinton talked about reforming them. hillary clinton wants to expand them. bill clinton had work requirements and welfare to get more people on the ladder of opportunity. hillary clinton wants to expand all of the mandates and government assistance. she doesn't want to reform welfare. >> and>> she doesn't want to reform the regulatory state. she wants to extend dodd frank to nonbanks. she is in another of those dilemmas.
12:45 pm
she cannot separate herself from barack obama. she's trying to signal people in the center that i am not going to continue policies of the past. >> you would think that it is an advantage to donald trump on the economy and some of the polls show that. how does hillary clinton fight back on the economy? i guess go after the rich. >> that's what she thinks will work. i don't think that's necessarily a bad strategy. just because there is a wave of populism here, right? we believe that marginal tax rates matter. if you tax the rich, they don't do as much as they normally would to stimulate the economy. she'som counting on the idea th there is a populous wave and she's going to tell these people who had depressed wages during the obama years that she's going to make them better off. >> is the economy for trump an issue? >> it should be an advantage. will he point out the wit we have been talking about? he's not a policy guy.
12:46 pm
it is incumbent to point out. >> the chances of that happening? >> when we come back, a big week for the little sisters of the poor over the birth control fight and a potential list of nominees from donald trump. there's a place for vacationers who seek more
12:47 pm
12:48 pm
12:49 pm
than just a little time off. the ones who choose to go big or stay home. ♪ come with me now... where every amazing, despicable, wizarding adventure reveals moments that are truly epic. this place is made for those who do more than just vacation. ♪ whoa go with me now it's made for those who vacation like they mean it. universal orlando resort. the supreme court once again taking center stage in the 2016 campaign as likely republican nominee donald trump releases a list of 11 potential nominees. and the remaining eight justices issue a decision in one of the most closely watched cases of the term. we are back with dan henninger, james taranto and joe rego.
12:50 pm
the little sisters of the poor religious liberty case, people are saying this is a victory actually for the little sisters. do you agree? >> i do. i don't think it is a narrow victory. i think it is a broad victory. decided on narrow ground. . . ome kind of accommodation that actually accommodates our >> we don't have to follow the mandate on contraception and. is there a way to accommodate them. te them and still achieve all the goals of this mandate and the obama administration admitted yes, there was. so what the court said was all right, go back, figure out some kind of compromise that respects the tradition of religious pluralism in america and we will see if it happens. >> they vacated the lower court judgments against the little sisters of the poor and said you cannot in this decision punish
12:51 pm
the little sisters in the interim while this is being negotiated but the lower courts could come back if the obama administration does not agree to the accommodation that joe suggests and rule against them and go against them again. >> well, the big question is who replaces justice scalia. if it's a democratic appointee, either garland or an appointee of mrs. clinton, then the case probably eventually works its way up and a majority of the court says the government can force the little sisters of the poor to violate >> what chance, do you think that the administration will accommodate the little sisters? >> there's a modest chance. it's about coercion forcing private institutions to accommodate the state, basically. in given a chance for a do-over, we'll see if they take the invitation. >> and whatti do you think of t
12:52 pm
court, how it's doing with the 4-4 split. >> it's interesting. the way they handled the little sisters case basically ordering the parties of the case to work it out themselves is something i haven't seen them do before. some cases, they issued one per seeing the decision is upheld by the divided court and make no new law and the appeals court makes the decision. another thing i think we might see them do is really issue unanimous decision that restates current law. >> let's turn to donald trump's nominees. 11 names out there. what do you think of them and was this a smart move? >> it was a smart move. most p people think, by and lar, are impressive conservative jurists. not too much dissent from that but there's a credibility problem. i think, paul, it would be very difficult for him as president to flip and just appoint a crony because he's doing this to get
12:53 pm
theth support of the conservati movement. and we're talking about a lot of voters. if trump were president andnd wt back on this, his approval rating would drop to 40% within a month of his presidency. >> but here's the thing. we still have the campaign and the reason most nominees don't float these names beforehand is because they can become targets and you're already seeing the leftsa saying this decision on abortion, and this on contraception and targeting those. all reasons to support these people. >> he's making the case for it. >> the advantage to trump to say, if they'rehe attacking my nominees, conservatives come on board. >> right. the liberals are helping trump to solidify the conservative base which is a problem for him because conservatives don't trust him. >> you like the idea as well that he floated these names and what do you think of them? >> i had not heard of most of the names and i follow this stuff very closely, but i will
12:54 pm
give you an example. i got an example from a reader from colorado who's skeptical of trump and if there's chance of allison on thehe supreme court, i'll hang alongside and say a justice on the colorado supreme court. here's a conservative in a swing state who is warming to trump as a result of it. >> a couple names, joe, left off and i would like to have seen on. greg cavanaugh, of the sixth circuit. high powered intellects that the court lost, conservative intellectsel with antonin scali. so i mean, that's too bad but you like the list? >> luckily,y, trump said he may expand it if he needs to. i think that's kind of born of necessity. i mean, supreme court politics are so intense. trump needed to convince republicans that he would fight on behalf of principles to be shown he maybe doesn't care all that much. >> do you agree it boxes them in somewhat to pay a political
12:55 pm
price? >> if hee tries to appoint his butler or a relative or whatever, i think it makes much harder and will face more resistance. >> thank you all. one more break. hits and misses of the week. to truly feel healthy on the outside

12:59 pm
>> i think a fair bet. dorothy? >> this is hits and misses production of lbj passage of the civil rights bill, most enormous rancor of left and right, conservative and democrat and yet, they crossed the aisle and right to move from justice. it would be nice to think that our political parties could one day have that character. >> a future miss to google that held the big presentation on artificial intelligence this week, do your thinking for you. one of the examples cited, if someone sends a photo of a grandchildren to a grandparent, your cell phone will automatically rely, man, she's really cute. so you don't have to do anything. you like that? >> i like that. i think some day i'll go, siri, what do you think? they're all beautiful. and your own hit or miss, follow us. thank to my panel and all of you
