Show 237 - Edward-Isaac Dovere
This is the brilliant inside story of how Joe Biden won the Democratic nomination and The White House, told by Isaac Dovere, the lead political correspondent for The Atlantic. It begins analysing Obama's legacy inside and outside of the party, includes insights from voters who backed Obama twice and voted for Trump, assesses why candidates like Buttigieg, Bloomberg, Warren and Sanders were unable to defeat Biden... and how popular the politics of AOC and Ilhan Omar are with the wider party. In short, it's a corking summary of an incredible period in American politics.
