Chatting Up A Storm - Claudia Cragg


Jul 24, 2018

@KGNU's Claudia Cragg (@KGNUClaudia) speaks here with Dan Pfeiffer,@danpfeiffer a cohost of #PodSaveAmerica, now also coming to #HBO in the fall in four hour-long specials. The show's co-creators/presenters are   & .

One of Barack Obama’s longest serving advisors, Pfeiffer was White House director of communications under President Obama (2009-2013) and senior advisor to the president (2013-2015).

The Decade of Obama (2007-2017) was, Pfeiffer believes, one of massive change that rewrote the rules of politics in ways we are only now beginning to understand (which is, he says, why we all got 2016 wrong). YES WE (STILL) CAN looks at how President Obama navigated the forces that allowed Trump to win the White House to become one of the most consequential presidents in American history, why Trump surprised everyone, and how Democrats can come out on top in the long run.

Part political memoir, part blueprint for progressives in the Trump era, YES WE (STILL) CAN is an insider's take on the crazy politics of our time. Pfeiffer, one of Barack Obama's longest serving advisors, tells never-before-told stories from Obama's presidential campaigns to his time in the White House, providing readers with an in-depth, behind the-scenes look at life on the front lines of politics.
