We take a look at Elizabeth Warren's declining poll numbers and Kamala Harris' fizzling campaign, and wave goodbye to Steve Bullock and The Admiral. So with the field narrowing, we must also consider Ross Douthat's backhanded case for Bernie, and wait patiently for the Klobuchar Moment.

Amber talks us through the saga of WeWork, another in a long line of dumb tech start ups headed by a dumber leader emblematic of our dumbest economy. We then help talk you through some potential political minefields of your upcoming Thanksgiving Dinner Tables.
