Clip: 08/21/2020 | 2m 47s | Video has closed captioning.

How does this year's DNC fit in with the history of party conventions past? Doris Kearns Goodwin is perhaps the nation's best known presidential historian.

She recently wrote the book "Leadership in Turbulent Times" and she joins Christiane from Boston.
