Is Bernie Sanders a worthwhile gamble?

With Brian Beutler of the New Republic on his recent article Is Nominating Bernie Sanders a Worthwhile Gamble? Beutler is a senior editor at the New Republic. He covers domestic policy, politics, and political movements.

And Mike Lofgren, author of The Party Is Over. He spent twenty-eight years in Congress, the last sixteen as a senior analyst on the House and Senate Budget committees. His newest book is The Deep State: The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government. 

About the book:

    More ignorance about the so-called ‘ignorance’ of the American people, sadly from the Left. The *pattern* of misinformation tells you there is something systemic going on. That a majority of Americans believed Iraq had attacked us on 9/11 was a sign of the success of a propaganda campaign, which apparently you and your guest totally missed. Enough of the divide-and-conquer bs. The Left is as vulnerable to manipulation as the RIght, especially when they’re (we’re) told we’re superior and more educated than ‘most Americans.’
