On this week’s episode, anchor Jeff Greenfield looks ahead to next week’s Democratic national convention in Charlotte. We report on efforts by Democrats to win the white, working-class vote in Ohio: a constituency considered key to carrying the state, and winning the election.
The in-studio interview from Tampa is with Walter Shapiro, who has covered American politics for more than four decades who writes for The New Republic, for the Columbia Journalism Review, and for Yahoo! News and Tim Carney, senior political columnist at the Washington Examiner. He’s the author, most recently, of Obamanomics—a look at the President’s economic policy. Greenfield asks his guests about the democrats chances in Ohio and if the Republicans successfully made their case to voters following the republican convention.
Later, we take a look at the convention speeches that propelled unlikely candidates to the nomination — and even to the White House.
