Podcast: Can we regain the ability to come back together after elections?
“Everything has changed,” says CNN political contributor and Center for Politics scholar Paul Begala about campaigns and elections since he was the senior strategist for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign.
“Partisanship is now part of our identity and social media has really put jet fuel behind all the fissures in our society. Elections have always been about dividing. We’re losing the ability to come back together afterward.”
Begala joins ‘Politics is Everything’ to discuss the changing nature of political campaigns, the 2022 elections, political organizing, Texas politics, the Democratic Party and more.
