June 11, 2016: Is Hillary Her Worst Enemy?; How the Right Shifted on Mass Incarceration

June 12, 2016 @ 9:18 am

This week, as Hillary Clinton becomes the presumptive nominee, we'll be joined by Rebecca Traister, who spent days up and close with HRC and wrote a terrific profile for New York Magazine. It's long been said that in small groups Clinton is very different from her public image -- relaxed, smart and funny -- but she's so media-shy that the public image is unlikely to change. 


Then we'll speak to Johns Hopkins political scientist Steven Teles about a new book he co-authored with David Dagan titled, Prison Break: Why Conservatives Turned Against Mass Incarceration. It's a fascinating look at one of the rare examples of a political coalition reversing course on what was a core piece of their agenda -- being "tough on crime." It wasn't quick, and didn't come easy.  

Finally, if a Democratic Platform Committee hearing falls in the forest -- or is broadcast on C-Span -- and nobody hears it, does it make a sound? We have a couple of short highlights of past Politics and Reality guests Larry Mishel and Heather Boushey testifying this week about what we need to do to make the economy work.
