(phone ringing) (phone ringing) you can't deal with something by ignoring it . but that's how some presidential candidates seem to be dealing with social security. americans work hard and pay into it, so our next president needs a real plan to keep it strong. (elephant noise) (donkey noise) hey candidates!
5:11 pm
the american people can't afford to wait for ideas that sound good on paper... but will never make it in the real world. the grandmother who has to choose between paying for medicine and paying rent... can't wait. the single mom who desperately needs a raise... can't wait. the student with a mountain of debt can't wait. we can make real progress, right now. i'm caucusing... i'm caucusing... i'm caucusing for hillary clinton. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. lothon toin liteoar 'trlglons donto e aet. thes rcs. more. i dwan tiow stans candidate from their home state. the famous ice cream duo.... ben cohen and jerry greenfield.... whipped up a custom flavor for vermont senator bernie sanders.
5:12 pm
it's a bit conceptual for dessert -- but ben cohen, the co-founder of ben & jerry's, hopes this is an easy notion to swallow. "we've never done anything like this." his new, extremely limited edition ice cream flavor is "bernie's yearning." "it sounds great! anything to honor bernie sanders!" the presidential candidate is one of the biggest names to come out of burlington, vermont since -- maybe ben and jerry themselves. "he's doing a lot better a lot earlier than we expected." cohen's canvassing for sanders in iowa ahead of the caucuses. before he took off -- he took out his home ice cream maker... and whipped up a batch of mint chocolate chip. though -- all the chips are in one solid mass at the top. reflecting, cohen explains, how sanders sees too much new wealth in the united states as going to the top 1% "and you break it up into a lot of little pieces." more income needs to go to the
5:13 pm
chocolate needs to be blended down into that mint ice cream. "you spread the money around." cohen's promising to give away 25 autographed pints of his creation to winners of a random drawing through "i think ice cream is just ice cream. jack: not a place for politics? susie: not a place for politics. 56:45: i can relate ice cream to entertainment, but not politics." "it's important to point out that ben cohen is doing this as a private citizen. he no longer has a hand in running the company he co-founded. ben & jerry's corporate offices told political candidates." "we're talking collectible here, you know!" you can enter cohen's ice cream giveaway through february 3rd. some iowans who aren't old enough to caucus are learning how the voting process works... in a sweet way. "some of the kids in the chocolate chip cookies were set. set in stone." middle schoolers in mason city are using cake and cookies to help illustrate the
5:14 pm
republicans and cookies stand for the democrats. from there -- students picked what type of cake or cookies that look the best. in case you're wondering, chocolate chip won the democrat's cookie nomination and ice cream cake took it for the g-o-p. there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place

to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our hearts. and that journey begins here in iowa. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask you to join with us at the caucuses on monday night.
