Former Vice President Joe Biden says it's a myth that the young people Democrats need to turn out in the 2020 election are looking for "something radically different" in politics.
"This is not a hit on Bernie," Biden said. "But this is not a generation of socialists."
Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described "democratic socialist", is among the small group of Democratic presidential candidates who, along with Biden, have emerged as the top tier of 2020 hopefuls.
Biden said young people are concerned about corporate America's growing power, but they understand the Constitution and that consensus has to be reached in politics. "The vast majority, they want rational policy," said Biden, 76. He went on to say, "I don't think they're looking for a radicalization of who we are and what we do."
