Guests: Ross Baker, Joe Garofoli, and Rebecca Traister
Yesterday was a big day for Hillary Rodham Clinton. She became the first woman in American history to become the presumptive presidential nominee for a major political party. Despite suffering several losses, her rival Senator Bernie Sanders vowed to push on until the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia at the end of July. In this hour of Radio Times, we’ll examine the results and implications of yesterday’s primary contests for the Democrats and the GOP. We’ll be joined by ROSS BAKER, professor of political science at Rutgers University and by JOE GAROFOLI, senior political writer for the San Francisco Chronicle. Then we’ll hear from author and journalist REBECCA TRAISTER of New York Magazine about her profile of Hillary Clinton – “Hillary Clinton vs. Herself” – and her take on Clinton’s campaign thus far.
