David M. Axelrod is a political consultant and analyst, best known for being the Chief Strategist for Barack Obama's presidential campaigns.
Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin found she had a knack for storytelling as a child, recounting baseball games inning-by-inning for her father when he’d return home from work. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author has since harnessed that skill into chronicling the lives and leadership styles of American presidents at moments of national crisis, most recently with her 2018 book Leadership in Turbulent Times. Doris joined David to talk about the episodes of history that have led us to the present day, the fight for the soul of the Republican Party, and the historic inauguration of President Joe Biden. To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
Joe Scarborough had his first media experience hosting a call-in show on public access television to raise his political profile during a run for Congress.
