Elizabeth Warren as the Baker's Wife (an under-appreciated, competent woman who gets stuff done), Bernie Sanders as an older man that some dismiss as crazy, Beto O'Rourke who "was raised to be charming, not sincere," and Marianne Williamson as a character people forget is even in the show!

The choices got a standing ovation.
