1/19 Bridget Todd: Democratic Debate Review

January 19, 2016

On today’s show, political strategist and writer Bridget Todd (@BridgetMarie) joins us to review the Democratic debate. (7:00) The chasm in substance between the DNC and GOP debates, and how the DNC is missing an opportunity to draw the distinction with multiple debates. Hillary vs Bernie on healthcare. Bernie on partisanship being more a media a myth than cause of dysfunction, which he says is really down to congress being bought by moneyed interests. Hillary tries to paint Bernie as an Obama-basher to cover for Wall St. donations. The logic behind this strategy and how it will play out over time. Advice to the Bernie and Hillary campaigns.

On the Fun Half (40:30) – Rubio isn’t up-to-date with the Flint, Michigan lead-poisoned water, more debate recap, and listener calls and IMs!
