About this Episode

With just five minutes apiece, nineteen democratic candidates faced off on the Iowa Democratic Hall of Fame event. In this episode we take a look at three candidates that we haven't covered as much: Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg.


  • Why we call Cory Booker the Football Coach
  • How "Mayor Pete" utilizes example language to address policy stances to slide in to the mind of the listener
  • Elizabeth Warren's persuadability and her plans to circumvent United States Supreme Court rulings
  • How linking your family history to that of major historical movements aids in getting an audience on your side
  • How rate of speech and volume influences whether a candidate is perceived to be more friendly
  • How contrast is used to make simple ideas sound profound
  • Theming, allusions, and analogies
  • Why leading Democrats are now arguing that Republicans don't own the American value of freedom.
  • The submodalities of viewing things from different positions and how it ties into scaffolding
