  • -Hello, Senator -- -Hello.

  • -Senator Warren, thank you so much

  • for being on our show again.

  • -Oh, it's good to be here.

  • -We are just one day from election day.

  • -One day.

  • One more day!

  • I don't know about you.

  • I can't wait. -[ Laughs ]

  • Please -- -I cannot wait.

  • -Please get this --

  • Just get there. Let's go.

  • How do you think Joe Biden is feeling?

  • Is he nervous? Is he anxious? Is he excited?

  • -You know, I haven't talked to him for a little bit now,

  • but what I think is

  • he just feels this sense of enormous responsibility.

  • You know, when Joe Biden says

  • that this is a fight for the soul of our nation,

  • it's not a bumper sticker.

  • It's truly what's in his heart.

  • And he sees what it's been like

  • for four years with a president who lies to people,

  • a president who --

  • We're in the middle of a pandemic.

  • 229,000 people have died,

  • and the president doesn't even seem to care.

  • Joe Biden knows that we need a new president.

  • We need new leadership. We need a competent government,

  • and I think he's feeling that responsibility

  • and that sense that he is called to this moment.

  • -Yeah. You've recently spent a lot of time campaigning

  • for Vice President Biden in different parts of the country.

  • What kind of issues were coming up the most?

  • -So, I've been lots of places.

  • I've been to Minnesota and Wisconsin

  • and Maine and New Hampshire

  • and just today, virtually, down in North Carolina and Georgia

  • and back out in Wisconsin again.

  • You know, the number-one thing people talk about

  • is life and death.

  • I mean, they talk about it in lots of different ways,

  • but they do. They talk about this coronavirus.

  • They talk about the fact that eight months in,

  • Donald Trump still doesn't have a plan.

  • And then, they also talk about long-term, on their health,

  • that next week, Donald Trump and the Republicans

  • are going to be in court

  • trying to get the Affordable Care Act repealed.

  • That's going to take away healthcare

  • from tens of millions of people.

  • It's going to take away protection

  • from tens of millions more who have preexisting conditions.

  • And that is something --

  • I mean, this is like our basic thing.

  • We help take care of each other.

  • Joe Biden has committed to protect the Affordable Care Act,

  • to expand on what President Obama got passed,

  • and lower the cost of prescription drugs.

  • He's got real plans,

  • and he's got real plans to deal with the coronavirus,

  • with testing, listening to the scientists, the doctors,

  • contact tracing,

  • making sure everybody's got protective equipment.

  • This is a big difference.

  • This -- Truly, this election

  • is going to be an election of life or death

  • for a lot of folks.

  • -When I've heard you talk about Joe Biden,

  • you often talk about empathy. -Yeah.

  • -Why is that important to you to bring that up?

  • -You know, I never would have believed

  • that that would be the most important thing for a president,

  • 'cause I thought that everyone who would run for president

  • would have that basic empathy.

  • But Donald Trump has shown over and over

  • that he only cares about one person, Donald Trump.

  • And he talks about the coronavirus

  • as if it is an inconvenience to him,

  • or since he got $100,000 of great medical care,

  • that's all that really matters.

  • Joe Biden is a person who understands

  • what Americans are going through right now.

  • You know, he's a man who's suffered personal loss --

  • a wife, a child, and then an adult child, to lose them.

  • And he's also a man who has spent his whole life in service.

  • You know, it's easy to skip across what that means,

  • public service.

  • He's spent his life working for other people.

  • And I can't think of a better antidote to Donald Trump

  • than Joe Biden.

  • -And you've also known Joe Biden's running mate,

  • Senator Kamala Harris, for a long time.

  • Do you remember when you guys first met?

  • -Oh, yeah.

  • I'm telling you, there's a woman who knows how to mix it up.

  • It was back during the financial crisis.

  • In 2008, these giant mortgage companies were cheating people.

  • It was going to cost people --

  • lots of people, millions of people, their homes.

  • And Kamala was attorney general in California.

  • I was back here in Massachusetts.

  • I was a professor.

  • And, boy, I was ringing the bell as loud as I could.

  • And she jumped in that fight. We became partners.

  • We stayed partners in that fight

  • and a whole lot of fights since then.

  • You know, she's somebody who knows how to get in there

  • and fight for people, and I love that about her.

  • -What is the likelihood

  • that we'll know who the president is tomorrow night?

  • -Well, you know, here's the thing about democracy.

  • It really kind of has these two parts to it.

  • The first one is

  • every American citizen should get a chance to vote.

  • That's just -- That's our baseline.

  • But then, every ballot that gets cast gets counted.

  • And that means we may need to have a little patience.

  • We may need to stick in there just a little longer,

  • especially because with the coronavirus,

  • a lot of people have voted early.

  • A lot of absentee ballots.

  • And it's going to take a little longer to count them.

  • And counting them all means democracy is working.

  • So the way I see it is we're in this fight --

  • One more day for election day.

  • Everybody vote,

  • and we stay in this fight till every ballot gets counted.

  • And then we're going to celebrate,

  • and then we're going to get right back in the fight.

  • -What is your voting plan, by the way?

  • Have you voted?

  • -So, I haven't.

  • We're going to vote -- Bruce and I are going to vote tomorrow,

  • old-school, down at the elementary school near us.

  • We've been doing that for a long time.

  • We take Bailey and tie him up outside.

  • He does a little politicking with folks who come by.

  • You know, Golden Retrievers

  • do not understand about social distancing,

  • and he's there. -I have one, too. Oh, yeah.

  • -You know. You know. You also know about the shedding, right?

  • -Oh, my gosh. Please, yeah.

  • But they're so cute, it's all worth it.

  • -It's true. It's totally worth it.

  • So, we're going to go down there and vote.

  • And that is the reminder. For everybody who hasn't voted,

  • in-person tomorrow, that's way to do it.

  • It's -- You know, there's a real tradition for this.

  • And it's safe for people to do that.

  • Everybody's masked up and plenty of hand sanitizer.

  • They've taken lots of precautions.

  • So, anybody who hasn't voted yet, go to iwillvote.com.

  • You can get instructions on where you can vote

  • and what you have to do about registration

  • or what kind of I.D. you have to bring.

  • -Oh, good. -But iwillvote.com.

  • Everybody votes. Our democracy wins.

  • -I love that.

  • Real quick, last question for you.

  • So, you vote. You come home.

  • Are you going to watch the news all day long

  • and all into the night, or what are you going to do

  • to distract -- -No, I can't.

  • I -- That would absolutely make my eyelashes frizz off.

  • I could not do this.

  • -I know. -So, it -- Look.

  • What is to be learned from, "With 2% of precincts,"

  • you know, reporting -- No.

  • So, here's my plan.

  • Bailey, Bruce, and I, big bowl of popcorn,

  • sitting on the couch,

  • and we binge-watch something. -Yes.

  • -And then just kind of every now and again,

  • you make the flip over, kind of check where things are going,

  • and then you flip back, until we're deeper into it.

  • -I love that. That's a plan. I'm going to do the same thing.

  • -Good.

  • -Senator Elizabeth Warren,

  • thank you so much for coming back on our show.

  • I appreciate this. One more day. That's it.

  • -One more day.

-Hello, Senator -- -Hello.
