knowledgeable about things and by watching her, but i do remember, in 2008 whshgs she was running, and for the primaries. i are em that situation. barack obama and we trying to get back -- and to get that vote. i don't think for either campaign and like i said, we did have a connection, and we have anyone who is -- the vote and paying attention -- something that we were trying to grab on to but no one really got it. >> all right, i appreciate the insight, and they can make-up their own minds and anything that happens in the primaries. and insight, and that will go to the discussion, we will have more when we come back, and we will be checking with msnbc, and political analysts for all of the headlights out on the campaign trail. >> anchor: the weather on saturday is gorgeous.

take a live >> anchor:
this year, for the conventional wisdom about presidential campaigns, like how much it really matters to have experience. jack has perspective on that frmths the only way of doing politics, since on the daily basis, you know, we have had especially in the republican side. an enormous number of candidates and some of them complete, political novice with no
two ago, that lack of experience might have been a disqualifier, but these days it is the things that helps to make the candidate worthy of the office and now we used for candidates who articulated our aspirations for a better country. but so far, it indicates that the voters are more interested in candidates on both sides, who shatter the status quo and fight the establishment and the media elite, maybe here in south carolina we saw the start of this in 2012, that is the i couldn'ter that the republicans broke a 3, decade streak and voted for a presidential contender who did not go on to win the nomination. so what happened? many believed that newt won that year because he came out swinging in a debate, against john king about the relationship with his ex-wife, he blasted the media and south carolina gop voters ate it up, compare that to donald trump and his practice of insulting reporters to cover his rallies or his war with fox kelley.
love the idea that the candidate who ridicules the media as an institution, but trump is going further, attacks at rivals andself financed and does not have to worry about losing support from funding sources and one of two in the candidates who have never held any elected office and also getting traction at least early was dr. ben car son, another outsider who was less of a politician than trump and a washington insider and 74-year-old, senator, bernie sanders candidate who despite the risk of being branded as a free, spending socialist one who does not need super packs is giving hillary clinton's campaign a serious case of heart burn. more than any presidential election, cycle in modern history, this one is breaking all of the rules. >> and we have been covering politics, since your beginning
and the difference that we have seen decades and decades. >> i have never seen anything like it. >> and i am not the only one. >> anchor: thank you, jack. checking with charles. >> anchor: yeah, stepping out to make the voices heard. one student is speaking out and making family she spent
a lifetime making a difference for people. winning healthcare for 8 million children. benefits for families of reservists and the national guard. standing strong around the world for human rights and women's rights. hillary clinton. she'll raise the minimum wage. take on the drug companies to lower the cost of prescription drugs. and give everyone the opportunity to go to college without going into debt. she'll get the job done... for us.
"tell them, to go **** themselves..." he's not a reckless blowhard, or a scripted robot. he's a conservative governor with proven results. he led the nation in
job creation and beat the teachers union to enact massive reform. jeb bush. over 40 retired generals and admirals and 12 medal of honor recipients know he's the commander in chief we need now. conservative, proven and prepared. jeb bush for president. right to rise usa is responsible for the content
>> anchor: republicans are going
to the poll this weekend, but hillary clinton and bernie sanders continue to fight for the votes in south carolina at the democratic primary. >> anchor: which is the weekend after and there is a heated battle for the young, black, vote. meaghan norman has more. >> the vote is very important, particularly here in south carolina. it seems like it fits in both of these categories but one of them stands out from the pack, because unlike his
he is voting republican. >> from what i know, yes, i am the only person in my family, and voting for the republican party. >> reporter: brian said that he used to like dr. ben carson. >> i don't think that he has what it takes to be president. i don't think that he has the kind of energy and passion for it like the other candidates do. also, he lacks the experience. >> so now he switched. >> i am supporting governor johns kasich and i feel like he is the best candidate on the republican side. >> hall has done his research, even though his colleagues do not agree with him, they have stuyed up too. >> there is the thing that the normal person thinks about politics. and so we are something to that effect, whereas, the five minutes, will not thinking about pot tikz >> reporter: williams supports hillary clinton. >> and actually i am not supporting her like she is a woman.
work that speaks volumes of who she is behind her gender. and so much more than that. i feel like, if they were a man, i would definitely be seeing. >> write, stands next to a bernie sanders supporter, but says the revolution is not rubbing off on him yet. >> i think that the young people that have revolutions and have change, and a change, and i think the change, and i am never -- with the revolution. >> and the sampling of the opinion from the young voters. others that i have spoken with say, that they will vote for, they are still open to be persuaded by the candidates. in the studio, wis news ten. >> anchor: thank you and still to come on the news at seven, other news is making headlines. >> anchor: a child left at school, change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability. bernie sanders. he was there when dr. king marched on washington.
