Why is President Obama warning Democrats?

Why is President Obama warning Democrats about nominating a candidate who is too progressive?

Well, he's something of a moderate himself. And he's worried that if Democrats nominate a super progressive candidate, particularly on issues like health care, they will lose moderate voters, suburban voters, swing district voters, and hence the key states they need to win to beat Trump. So that's why he's warning.

What do the results of the Kentucky and Louisiana governor's races tell us about 2020?

Well, they tell us that Trump has really no coattails at all. And the Republicans are in trouble in those suburban areas. And that's a big issue for them heading into 2020.

Were there any smoking guns in the first week of impeachment testimony?

Well, I wouldn't say smoking guns, but there was lots of compelling testimony from Bill Taylor, Marie Ivanovic, all documenting a quid pro quo between aid to Ukraine and an investigation of Joe Biden. I think that's why you see polls moving slowly in favor of impeachment of Trump.

Empathy and listening are key to establishing harmonious relationships, as demonstrated by Callista Azogu, GM of Human Resources & Organization for Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), an Eni subsidiary in Abuja. "To build trust is very difficult. To destroy it is very easy," says Callista, whose busy days involve everything from personnel issues to union relationships. She sees great potential for her native Nigeria not only because of the country's natural resources, but because of its vibrant and creative people.

And as a result, much of the developing world will have to wait even longer for their turn. Part of the challenge, World Bank President David Malpass says, is that "advanced economies have reserved a lot of the vaccine doses." Malpass sat down with Ian Bremmer recently to talk about what his organization is doing to try to keep millions around the world from slipping deeper into poverty during the pandemic. Their conversation was part of the latest episode of GZERO World.

He joins Ian Bremmer on GZERO World to talk about how his organization is trying to keep the developing world from slipping further into poverty in the wake of a once-in-a-century pandemic.

Joe Biden wants to move into the White House, but the coast isn't clear. He may need some bleach.
