Moments before midnight, following their Democratic presidential debate, CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash and political director David Chalian boasted that former Vice President Joe Biden had what Democrats called the “chicken soup appeal.” According to them, this special appeal manifested in Biden’s ability to consistently remain frontrunner status and possibly be the cure for the illness which was supposedly President Trump.

After replaying Biden’s closing argument and touting it as his best moment during the debate, Bash talked about why he remained consistently at the top of the field. “And a top Democrat said to me, recently, that Joe Biden has the chicken soup appeal. That he has what's going to make everybody who feels sick feel better,” she said.

And that was the chicken soup speech right there at the end there,” she boasted. “And that is really what he is banking on. And when -- If he can do that and people listen to that and take that in, that's what he's going for. And if electability and beating Trump and feeling better about the country is what these Democrats say they want. That's it.
