In an extensive interview for Wednesday’s CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley took a stroll with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders around his childhood neighborhood in Brooklyn but not before a surprisingly tough sit-down that hit Sanders from the right on tax increases, the minimum wage, and how his ideas would be guaranteed to be “dead on arrival” in Congress.

However, Pelley started part one by going after Sanders with Clinton campaign talking points that the demographics of the states coming up on the primary calendar serve him no good with Pelley even suggesting to him that his New Hampshire win “[m]ight be your last one” because “[i]t only gets harder from here.”
