How Trump and Biden are making their pitches in battleground states

"If you look at a lot of these swing state polls is you look at them understand that the trump still is polling. Below the number he got twenty sixteen right he he's not pitching in to the support that he was getting in most of these polls. If not, all of them Joe Biden is polling ahead of where Hillary Clinton was. Right. A lot of these states are are states trump won that he's not leading in now. So I would say it's not a it's not as bad as you think it is. But B The pilot is almost certainly going to tell you buckle up your seat belt because. It's GonNa get closer. It's why we call them swing states or battleground states. So my my my thing on Florida's we get into this one quick thing in the last six presidential elections forty, five, million votes have been cast in Florida and the difference between Democrats and Republicans in that total of forty five million votes is a little more than eighty five, thousand death-ray Florida's Florida, I mean, it's GonNa be tight. It is going to be a very tight race all the way there. It's going to be a one point to point race. It's always has been, and if it's two points that's big in Florida, a Roberts set so. It doesn't surprise I. I agree with my thought I don't I kind of questioned the tide all in terms of the the strength of trump with Latinos over Biden air. I'm little asking that as well but even then you look at those numbers that finds doing much better with seniors than Hillary did in two thousand, sixteen in Florida I mean it's sort of offset the different race. It's not the same but it's going to be very tight.

"With. We went out into the hallway. Or do. For A second debate, the second debate we went in and and he said to us, I just want you guys to know we're going to have a good night. Yeah, and and he and he totally delivered and you know. But the psychology of those two locker rooms were completely were completely different. So by Pelosi says who who who I think is a is a genius in in so many ways that politics but she said publicly, she didn't think that Biden should debate trump I honestly I honestly don't know how one would. Not Debate trump I think he has to kind of I think Biden has to clear that. Hurdle now will a question for you puff is. If he does well, in that first debate and trump is outrageous Do you go through with the other two debates I think you have to try may want to add others i. just think you do those too I think you're not GonNa do listen. I. Think it's hard to shortcut the system cheat the gallon during the primaries not run through the tape there especially because one of the real complaints about trump is that he has absolutely. No regard for rules, lawns, laws, norms, and institutions. These presidential debates are an institution and by participating in them, you're showing respect for the system. So I agree with you I think he has to run through all of these but but I I, just thought him they'll I think there'll be a lot of pressure on them from Democrats to do exactly You know as you suggested that question now. So one question on the locker. Room. Because I do think that is so important as body language heading into these things like I'm not sure we're trump will be like because he hasn't really taken the governing part of being president that seriously like he may look forward to this I like you have any assessment it's hard to get into that adult brain of his, but you have any like is he going to be like a warrior who just can't wait to go? After Joe Biden I I mean, what's your sense of that? You know he's a showman daily he you know he's a performer and I think that he will go up and perform. The thing is he will perform as he is accustomed to performing. You know he's a he's a lounge act You know he's the Don rickles of politics and You know he will go up there and he will you know try and Demean and slash and and I, and whether that plays. Well, you know here's a thing about preparing for debates of the reasons we did poorly in the first debate in two thousand twelve is that we were preparing for one Mitt Romney in another Mitt Romney showed up I think the Mitt Romney that showed up was the more authentic Mitt Romney not the Mitt Romney who had been sort of trying to make himself acceptable to a D- a Republican party that had become more conservative than him. he turned up as the more myrick I who had been the governor of Massachusetts. And it was a very pronounced shift in strategy and you know we we we didn't really properly prepare for it in an Obama didn't make the adjustment on the stage and you really don't want your candidate having to make that kind of adjustment on the stage because the way you prepare for debates.

"They actually did spend a lot of money but it was they didn't have. They just didn't damage Biden in the way that they had hoped and that's why his onto this next you know the the The. The law and order campaign because he's improvising and trying to find some way to to drag by down because he knows there's a place to which he can't go. Number wise here. So So yeah, these polls. I, mean the most encouraging part about these poseurs where Biden sitting and also you know when you put together trump's approval with his with his vote, you know how he to the number needs. It's hard to get there unless he succeeds in doing what we said earlier unless he succeeds in bringing, you know hundreds of thousands of these battleground states hundreds of thousands of new voters in. Who are more akin to him which I think it's still a concern and why I think not just like rah-rah motivational speech Democrats should assume that trump's going over perform these polls because he's going to likely drive big turnout I mean it's not inconceivable. You know now part of this was to your point he won Wisconsin with forty seven point two or forty, seven point four because a third party. But you got a million four thousand votes it's not inconceivable. He could get that up to a million, six, hundred, thousand. As we all slowly adjust to the normal. We still need to be smart about how we do business. Luckily, they're stamps dot.

Today's Mantra Is... Big Booty!

"Mantra. Hi My name is Sarah Axelrod. I'm a run coach and lover of poetry and I'm here to put the fun back in pro funding. You don't have to be an athlete to be Hashtag coached and luck. And if you need an anchor to hold onto as you move through a tough situation you've come to the right place. Today's mantra is big booty big Buddha the other night I watched my kid play an entire game of musical chairs against herself and her stuffed animals. I didn't even have to play. All I had to do was take chairs away one by one because she didn't have any room in her hands and press play and pause on let it go as she did the rest. It was the funniest thing I have ever seen her do. Parade around with Armfuls of dolls and Steffi's only to furiously stage a battle between herself and each of them for each available chair when the music stopped. I've never seen anyone commit to a fiction so thoroughly last week. Captain Awkward gave some beautiful and heartfelt advice to a reader coping with depression. Who asked for help with small talk in their current state of being? I'm a deer in headlights. The reader wrote and I can't think of something that's even vaguely interesting and not some form of super depressed so I can't remember sorry and I know that's fine to say sometimes but I don't want that to be my response every time someone talks to be in person and quote captains response was as always compassionate and sound a reminder that it's okay not to be okay and that you're not ruining anyone's Day by being upfront about what's on your mind and you also don't owe them anything. You aren't comfortable revealing. Then she tells story about herself having moved Chicago in her twenty s taking Improv classes to try and force yourself out of her shell quote my nice teacher and seen partners would do a thing and then it would be my turn to yes and them and add my own thing and I would just fuck and stay in there silently like I was Ali minus the fund's smirk or any trace of whimsy and quote. Oh I feel that. So hard. And then captain awkward goes on to describe the also way too much extra warm ups that they did. For this Improv class zips APPs up and big booty and as soon as I read the words big booty I was thrust back in time as time machine to freshman orientation college standing in a big circle of I'm sure equally petrified freshman. The upperclassmen initiated us to the uninhibited line with the following chant. Big Booty big booty big booty big booty and then it was like a call and response big booty number one number one big booty booting up to number two big booty so in person in the middle looks at you and goes big. Buddha number one you have to respond number one big booty and if you flood your response to the collar. It's your turn to be in the middle and start shouting big booty at people. You've never met before so I was terrified before I got to college but this was the game. The told me I would be all right for me. Once I played big booty with someone there was really no remaining facade of coolness or aloofness or withdrawn understated nece. There was nothing understated about any of this and I look at any person in that field and think I know what it sounds like when you shout. The words big booty we were there. After divided into small groups to go on our backpacking trips before school started and big booty was so beloved. We would take a hiking break. Drop our pants and play it in the middle of the adirondack trail sure. The other hikers really appreciated us. I stayed friends with a few of the other students on my trip though. Not all of them and yet still whenever I caught sight of them somewhere on campus I could confidently muster a friendly smile and wave even if we hadn't spoken in months because after all if I closed my eyes I could imagine their booty dance. I know that social anxiety is real and that it doesn't go away by just trying a little harder and I know that sometimes being out in public and having to answer the question of how are you is a truly fraught situation and I know that. Sometimes the thought of that situation isn't enough to convince you to stay home and I am not saying but you should just get over yourself and big booty your way out of the house. What I am saying is this. You are not silly or at least you are no more silly than anyone else around you that you look at it and think wow they seem to really have it all together because that person has definitely gotten their shit owned and musical chairs whether they remember or not. That person has played zips APPs up at their Ernest Improv class and

Live It: A Mantra for Memories

"Fm to get started a picture maybe worse thousand words but when was last time you read a thousand word article instead of just repeating it hot? This is coach Sarah and this is the morning Matra. Hi My name is Sarah Axelrod. I'm run coach and a lover of poetry and I'm here to put the fun back in profundity. You don't have to be an athlete to be. Hashtag coached and love. And if you need an anchor to hold onto as you move through a tough situation you've come to the right place. Today's mantra is live. It live it. My mother-in-law is a scrap booker. A memory maker. She writes down every funny thing. My daughter says so that it can be documented for later and while she saves it for the scrapbook. She also repeats it every single person's she speaks to for the next several days. My daughter is at the moment her first and only grandchild and she is savoring every single moment. I sometimes look at her scrapbooks. She has one for every year of my husband's life until he graduated from college and same for is older brother and I feel a little wistful. At how little I have collected and memorialized in such an organized fashion. I hear constantly that I have to write everything down. Collect everything. Save everything back everything up three times. Because if I were to lose these images of my daughter's baby and toddler years they would be gone forever. Think a lot of us. Feel this pressure. Make Memories Savor the moments live every day? Like it's your last. Never Forget and yeah having lost my mom at age thirteen I occasionally gripped by the fear that somehow my family will all die and leave me alone and the thought of not having them near me is the thing that scares me most. I want to remember everything. I'm heartbroken not to have single video of my mother for example or a single recording of her voice. After she died we kept her answering machine message for months as long as we could. It advised collars that if they were in need of a little loving kindness to quote just give themselves a hug and so my phone. Now is chockablock. With videos of my daughter's singing spinning laughing string pancake batter telling me stories insane. Stories that go on and on. I have photos upon photos of her eating Khorasan's drink hot chocolate drawing X. sugars brushing her teeth. Naked and covered and self applied Unicorn Tattoos seized by the urge to capture her in her most iconic poses both the powerful love and affection. I feel towards her in those moments and the fear that I'll forget the fear of losing the perfect for your old version occur. I WanNa put my phone away and just be with her. The moment is beautiful and I want to live it. But what if I don't get ensure that will keep her with me? Always the other day I went out for a run at about six. Am later than usual for me. And it was. The first year morning we'd had in several days and coincidentally the moon was full and enormous and hung low in the sky over my shoulder as Iran ports. The track and twice. I stopped to take a picture of it because it was so captivating. And what if I couldn't see it anymore once I got to the track and both photos streetlamps were in the way the foreground this blurry and in the picture of the moon just look like a teeny Dot of light dimmer than the ambient light and barely even identifiable. I was tempted to try again but I made myself give it up and moved on. I got to the track. There was again hanging low over the university buildings on one side. While on the opposite side eastern sky began to glow as the sun got closer to rising. The moon was so unimpressive the way my phone captured it. How could it looks so big and cap to being in the sky and yet shrink so willfully in my photo after that attempt my intervals started which meant no more stopping and yet the urge was so strong? I just had to get the photo but did I. My hand instinctively reached for the phone in my pocket and I searched for what to say to myself to make myself believe that. I didn't really need this photo as much as I thought I did. I see tourists all over Boston. Taking photos of everything photos. That honestly seem kind of silly to me. I used to really judge them for it but then I look at myself my camera roll and I think yeah I get it. We're all afraid of forgetting and yet it isn't always the case that seeing something through a camera lens is the only way. Remembrance proofs had had a camera his memories wouldn't have saturated his madeleine's we wouldn't have the iconic Proust's Madeleine's as the symbol of remembrance.

There Is Always Enough Love to Go Around

"Coach Sarah and this is the morning mantra. Hi My name is Sarah Axelrod. I'm run poach and a lover of poetry RETREA and I'm here to put the fun back in profundity. You don't have to be an athlete to be Hashtag coached and loved and if you need an anchor to hold onto as you move through a tough situation you've come to the right place. Last year. I published a mantra about the amount of love. I have to go around. There is always enough and I never want you or or anyone else in my life to forget that or cease to believe it. But if you need reassurance I get I used to believe a lot of things about love including the idea that needing it made made me lesser that asking for it diminished its value when I did receive it having to ask someone to remind me that they loved me. Felt like an admission of weakness and I was determined Herman to radically eight that weakness. It's been a long time since I really saw that assumption for what it was the product of pain and loss and need that did absolutely not make week or broken but actually untying the not that I tied myself into has been a much longer process and it is ongoing recently though perusing using one of my usual advice columns. I found myself reading these words. You are central Theresa whether you're aware of it or not was that emotion itself is weakness and that all things that blossomed from emotion our intern week or diluted were broke. Yeah you're right. Heather have released. It was my central precept for a long time. I was drawn to people who didn't seem to need anything. I wanted so much to be like them. I thought that if I tried hard enough to just grow my shell it would work. I wouldn't care about hearing the words I love you. They're just like words and words are cheap. Actually actually emotional. Distance was a sign of respect. A sign that this person looked at me and saw their equal similarly emotionally needless human woman. Yeah couldn't keep up that charade for very long and here's why I started making friends with people who express love and affection friends. WHO said I I love you? Who hugged gratuitously? Who helped space for me and cared about my feelings a lot that love the willingness with which it was given made me feel safe and hearing that I was loved even when I already knew it especially when I already knew it matter I used to hear and believe that if you say I love you too much the words lose their meaning meaning well not yet but I'll call you if it happens? My daughter for a three month period last year would ask me to read the same story to her over and over over again. This was before we discovered frozen called. I'll always love you by painting. Lewis and penny is a little bear. Breaks his mom's favor bowl and is immediately lately. Jittery about how she will react so before she sees the broken bowl he finds her. He snuggles up and he asks whether she hypothetically would still love him mm-hmm if he did something bad she replies without giving it a thought. I'll always love you. So he gives her a for instance would if he paints all over his baby sister. What if you punctures every pillow in the house their response is always the same? I will always love you and you're going to have to clean your shit up but it begins with that constant. I will always always love you. I suspected from the beginning that my daughter was requesting the story over and over again as a way of broaching the same question with me without having to ask me outright and then we haven't read it in a while it's refrain has remained an anchor for which she returns to when she hears a weary or corrective tone for me. But Mommy. Do you still love of me or more adorable. Are you still my loving mother. And the thing is that when she asks me. There's no need to think about what my response will be. And even though I'm not about to be completely redirected but ever I say next we'll begin with. I'll always love you and to get the

Today's Mantra: Wait Your Turn

"All my brain. Here's is party time. Hi My name is Sarah Axelrod. I'm run poach and a lover of poetry and I'm here to put the fun back in profundity. You don't have to be an athlete to be. Hashtag coached and loved. And if you need to anchor to hold onto as you move through a tough situation you've come to the right place yeah. Today's mantra is wait. Your turn wait your return. Hey everyone welcome back to the morning mantra pod. Did you miss us. My brain sure miss you while we were on hiatus I I could not stop myself from grabbing. mantras out of thin air. All the time sermon in Church Metro Metro Metro. A new book. I'm reading to my daughter. Metro Metro measure mantra. Greek British bake off with my totally obsessed husband major major Metro Metro morning guided meditation veteran interim Metra Metra tre actually. It's this last one. That both excites me in irritates me. I've actually been meditating regularly since the beginning of December and it's thin tastic. I look forward two in each morning. The fifteen ish. Minute sessions really tend to fly by actually. That's kind of the problem so often. I find myself at the end of the meditation session realizing that. I haven't heard a single thing. The Meditation Guide has said happened tuned into my breathing have found awareness in my body. Haven't really even been conscious of my thoughts are just been running away with them. What on Earth is my brain doing all this time. Well it is thinking about upcoming podcast interviews writing my weekly newsletter. Plotting a run on route my head deciding what time I will broadcast the strength search for today. Getting ideas about everything especially mantras. Let your thoughts float overhead like clouds in the sky. The Meditation Lady Says Without Chasing Them. That's good I think as I go dashing off in pursuit and it's great. Don't get me wrong. But this very tendency to let my inspiration and my ideas seep into every crack of my waking hours without giving me a break is the the same one that can tear me to pieces when the thoughts that gripped me are more negative kind. There's a fine line between inspiration obsession and the meditation practices among other things. Things intended to help me set boundaries with my own brain to help me learn to consider without dwelling and decide without ruminating as I slide back into the habit of writing and recording mattress regularly. I know that my mantra generation machine will sometimes grab my attention at inopportune times in that what I need to let go of is the fear that if I drop everything and listen a loose something I'll be behind this is the thinking I need to dismantle. I know that indulging my thoughts every time they a knock without asking. Is this helpful right now. Is this a good time for me. Isn't the long-term healthiest thing for me. My brain loves me and it's just doing what brains do its way of operating isn't good or bad it's part of WHO. I am and how I work. I take comfort in planning and executing my brain has been trained for years to always be deep planning so when it pulls it my sleeve as I breeze plies. New Suggestions and ideas and requests and distractions. I'm not saying no. Oh I'm saying not right. Now wait your

Q. activist what she would say to someone who believes marriage is between one man and one woman I don't wanna say than just merry one one she waited a bit and then headed this snarky comment you can find one sounds like he was saying anyone with those beliefs is a loser or maybe just deplorable in addition to worries about warrants electability and Biden's ability to perform Democrats are also watching an intramural primary going on you could call it the Biden understudy battle that's where Peter the judges the candidate to watch says David Axelrod but the judges still pulling in the single digits but he came in third in last quarter's fundraising behind Warren and Sanders but ahead of Biden if Biden were to stumble who could take up that late people to church is clearly now angling for that now he is more moderate in temperament and in policy then certainly than Warren or Sanders and he's been more pronounced about his differences with them lately so tonight's debate takes place against a backdrop of a lot of churn in the democratic race with three and a half months before any Democrat votes or caucuses a lot can still change Mar Eliason NPR news Washington

Today's Mantra Is 'There Is Enough'

"Love in coffee beans. Well it's six. Am and there is enough love to go around hi. Hi this is coach. Sarah and this is the warning mantra hi. My Name is Sarah Axelrod. I'm run coach and a lover of poetry and the person who cares about your wellbeing. You don't have to be an athlete to be Hashtag coached and loved and if you need an anchor to hold onto as you move through a tough situation you've come to the right place in today's is there is enough. There is enough recently. My my husband overheard me getting off the phone with coach K. and saying Yep Levy to buy he looked at me and said you guys say I love you on the phone and I laughed at him because has of course we do. was that really so strange. I mean have you met us. Say I love you a lot to a lot of people my husband and my daughter her coach K. my friends my brother the people I coach in the fitness protection program. I've heard people say that somehow. If you say I love you too much it loses its meaning but I guarantee you that. If I have ever said I love you to you whether allowed or in written form I mean it. I mean it every time I remember a time when I was much younger when my husband was my boyfriend and some of my very closest female friends were having a pretty hard time with him now he'll be the first to admit that he was not yet his best self at the age of nineteen and he didn't have quite the way with people that he now works hard to cultivate but it wasn't just him. There was a thing that seemed to happen among my friends. When I feeling started to seem serious we got married young and that didn't fix everything but I didn't really get where the hostility was coming from until one day when I was having a screaming fight on the phone with my oldest friend who is angry and hurt at the feeling that I wasn't prioritizing our friendship enough. I don't remember the details of the thing that had set her off but it was one too many times where she felt like had chosen my husband and not her. I ached for her but I also resented the jealousy and the assumption of bad faith on my part and the only thing I found within me to say was I don't know how to make you believe this but it is possible for me to love you. Both I have enough room for you. Both there is enough love. I don't know if she believes me in the moment but more than a decade later we're still friends because at some point she decided to believe me we would not still be friends if that had continued. I feel pretty certain and the pressure of having to constantly reassure someone that they were in fact loved when they refused to take my word for it was crushing and yet but at the same time I could so relate to the panic that comes from the feeling of being unloved. I hated the thought that anyone ever felt unloved left me until the age of thirteen. I slept with fifteen to twenty stuffed animals all in my twin bed with me at one time because they feared they're feeling cast aside or loved less. If I put them in a closet on their behalf I could not bear it. I would not be doing what I do now if I did not have it in me to love many many people at one time hundreds of people in fact I want you to I know that when I tell you I love you on the phone facebook group to your face. I mean the hell out of it. I see you and I see what is in your heart in many cases. I have been where you are or I am where you are or I will be where you are and I see your generosity towards others and I see how hard you work. Can I see the beautiful things you do and I love you. Endlessly whether you need to be reassured of this or whether you are asked all the time to reassure who are others. This mantra is for you. There is enough love. You have enough love for all the people in your life who are worthy of of it. There is enough. The love you show is enough demonstrating it. All the time can be tiring. I know this too sometimes the the people closest to you and depending on you need more than you can give and that does not mean that you are not enough. It's okay not to be okay. It's okay to need more then someone can give and it's okay for that someone to say. This is my limit. I do not love you any less for having limits but this is my limit I used you think that in order to really love someone I had to let them take whatever they needed. In order to truth that I had enough love for them. It is possible to set limits to to preserve yourself and still love someone as much as it is possible to love them. It is possible to set limits and still have your love be enough if you are the one who needs to be reminded that you are loved that there is enough love for you. It's okay to ask for that too. It's always okay as long as you can. Hear the truth. Use the response when the response is that there is enough hear me now. If I have ever told you I love you. I love you and no matter how many people I tell it to. There will never be any less for you.

"The axe files with your host, David Axelrod. Who is Nate silver? And why does everybody in politics care so much about what he thinks? Well, it has to do with the fact that over the last ten years he's been one of the most accurate forecasters data analysts writing and speaking about politics, he came by the university of Chicago last week, his alma mater to talk about data, and politics and sports, and I sat down with him to talk about how he ended up being who he is. Nate silver, a living legend, it's great to be across the table from you and welcome back to the university of Chicago. Where all began I am a UC graduate. I'm still a huge fan of of the city of Chicago. You know, I've been in New York for like almost ten years now, and it's like a little bit of a weird interval when you come back to a city, it's kinda place Chicago university of Chicago. And then lived Chicago afterwards. Like kind of where I came of age, basically. Yeah. So it's a little bit. Like, you kind of get this like rush of like memories and emotions and like now, you kinda see the city Moore's outside or even though it was kind of your home city. So, but it is always great to. So I have the reverse I grew up in New York. Yeah. And go back there, and I have all these warm memories. But I do feel like a like visceral tell you I came out to Chicago to go the inverse, Chicago and thought this is sleepy little town. Yeah. Yeah. Coming from New York. But now. Now, I'm a thoroughgoing Chicago. And so I can give you the whole chapter numbers case for Chicago over New York. So now that all my relatives are gone from there anyway. But that's not where you started. You started in east Lansing Michigan. Tell me about that. Tell me about your folks. Yes. And my dad is a political science professor. And so I guess it's very on brand for me to have have gotten into politics and covering politics. Was he and impure or what what was what was his how he was? Originally, Sylvia talent when there was a Soviet Union. And what he would do actually look at lot at Soviet demographic data which sounds like it's boring, but it's not because a lot of it was fake. It's like China now or something as he trying to figure out like what's the real story behind abortion rates birth rates or death rates or GDP or whatnot in Russia and somebody I should say when the government is trying to look good and is trying to fudge the numbers, basically. So he worked with data and statistics. So this is not like a this wasn't a surprise that you should gravitate that. I mean, he encouraged me to to major in economics if it was going to pick pick something in in this arena, generally because it is especially you see very quantitative in very rigorous not at the other disciplines, aren't so I don't all that often listened to my parents by did this time and majored in economics at the university of Chicago. But for sure I mean, I've always, you know, part of my fascination with with baseball sports also comes from the fact that like they're lied numbers, obviously to analyze baseball and basketball particular those, and so and so yes, it all it all kind of makes sense in. I I wanna talk to you about that in a minute being a fellow sports. Fanatic, your mom in my noted says, she's a she was a community activist. Yeah. So what what what not manifest itself, it meant that she would attend a lot of city council meetings organized campaigns to to instill more like stop signs and things like that. Right. Which always used to annoy me as a cat. We're driving around on the stop sign with Rex make things slower. But I'm sure you mind when it stopped many accidents and save lives, and ultimately and so on and so forth..

"Chicago institute of politics and CNN the axe files with your host, David Axelrod. Takes a lot of split a run for president of the United States of lot of brass. And that is particularly true. If you're a little known three term congressman, but John Delaney's used to long odds, the grandson of immigrants, the son of a union electrician from New Jersey Delaney head tremendous success in business from an early age went onto defeat a Republican incumbent for a seat in the house from Maryland in his spent much of the last year in and out of Iowa pitching decidedly centrist case for the democratic nomination. I sat down with him and Chicago recently to find a just would he and met campaign or about? John's Laney welcome here. I think the operative mission. Here of the next hour is to answer these questions who the heck is John Delaney and Wisey running for president. So let's start with the first first because we have some common linkages. I know that your grandparents were immigrants from Ireland and England and they at wound up in Jersey City, and my grandfather was an immigrant from Russia, and he wound up in Jersey City, which is where my mother grew up. So tell me a little bit about your family. So first of all thank you for having me, David. It's great to be here. You're right. My I'm three quarters Irish one quarter English because. Three my grandparents were Irish, and my grandfather was English and everybody got along. They. Yeah, they reasonably well. And they're all from Jersey City. And then I grew up in a little town called woodridge, which is right outside right near giant stadium. But my one grandfather, it's funny. I talk a lot about my one grandfather in particular on the campaign trail because he has a very interesting story. He came to this country in nineteen Twenty-three with his seven brothers and sisters and his mother, and they came in on a ship. And when I went from Ireland now this is from the England, and when I went back into research on it he came on a ship and the day he the ship came in August of nineteen Twenty-three. Fifteen ships came into New York harbor that day from Europe bringing fifteen thousand immigrants, which is just an amazing thing to think about what it must have been like and his seven brothers and sisters were led into the country. But he was detained. And the reason he was. Is because he only had one arm and back then we didn't allow people into the country who had disabilities and they used to give them what was called six second physical. So they look at them for six seconds to make sure they're okay. And they let him into the country's he was detained and scheduled to be deported. So they sent him to Staten Island. And he was all set to be deported was a little boy who's, you know, eleven twelve years old at the rest of his family got it. But they appeal the decision because you're able to appeal and so he finally got a hearing in front of a judge and the hearing was held in the great hall of Ellis Island. Were you probably been? Yes..

"And now from the university of Chicago institute of politics and CNN the axe files with your host, David Axelrod. My first recollections of John Kerry were as a young navy veteran and Vietnam war hero would become one of the most powerful critics of that war in the early seventies. He, of course, went on to become a Senator secretary of state, very nearly president of the United States. I sat down with secretary Kerry for my CNN TV show tonight. It was a really full and interesting conversation all of which you can hear here. Secretary Kerry great to be with you here in your old new haunt Yale University of seminal place in your in your life. We'll talk about that. But. It is a life. That's been dedicated to the proposition that these democratic institutions that global institution diplomacy were important pillars for our country. What what's the state of American foreign policy now deeply challenged deeply challenged to the point of being dangerous for our country and contrary to the goals of foreign policy, which is supposed to advocate, your interests and your values simultaneously. And we're not doing that President Trump has isolated America and taken us backwards in terms of institutions that were structured ever since World War Two to bring the world together. He has really isolated us taking us backwards in a way when we ought to be uniting the world and and coming together, he would say that these. Institutions and these alliances have taken advantage of America. And that he wants to advance American interests. And that is best done by withdrawing from some some of these entanglement. Well, they actually says I think something a little different from that, David. Yes, he argues that there that that for instance, NATO is not paying its fair share President Obama raised that issue powerfully. And I remember the whales G twenty we the president President Obama succeeded in getting the country's all agree to increase their amounts. So that's not a new argument. President Trump pretends it is. Intimates that that this money is going into pot. This is money that these countries concern ourselves to their own defense. So no surprise then who has in the course of his presidency, presented the world more than seven thousand three hundred lies accounted for by major media outlets as lied about that as he has about the reason for withdrawing Moran. The reason for withdrawing from Paris the reason for during let's talk about those because you weren't you were deeply deeply involved in all of those things. But may I say one thing quickly David about the why these institutional important after World War Two. We spent huge creative energy from people idea. Natunas George Marshall and others to restructure the world, really and the Bretton Woods agreement. The the UN all of these things were created to prevent people from killing each other as rapidly as they had been up until then with World War One. And then we weren't to the audacity of what? George Marshall Harry Truman did is stunning. They said we're going to turn around and invest money in rebuilding the countries that attacked us the rebuilt, Germany rewrote accounts. Titian rebuilt Japan rewrote accounced issue. And today two of our strongest allies in the world that our democracies are Japan and Germany, it was investment that the American people were didn't support fundamentally. But that was leadership today without any demonstration of how it will make America safer. Why we need to do this this false presumption that quote America first every president puts America first, they don't do it in the same way that Donald Trump has where he's breaking things apart without any alternative makes us safer..

I met Yvo dollar when he was a highly regarded US Representative to NATO he has a long history in national security, both as a member of the national Security Council and the State Department, and as an author and scholar now he heads the Chicago council on global affairs, and I sat down with him the other day to talk about US policy toward Syria, North Korea and some of the other hot spots around the world. Evil dollar welcome. You know, there's been a lot of talk about immigration lately, you are an immigrant. I mentioned you before the show, you have all of these very very impressive academic diplomatic credentials. But now a lot has been written about your your early life, which took place in Europe. Greg came here to graduate school and met my wife, married her for green card and thirty one years later, we're still marrying as we said, there's the immigration system where exactly, but but talk about your your family and your early life. So I grew up in Holland Dutch, parents my father was an academic. Non jewish. My mother was Jewish. They're both war generation people. They went through the war. My father was in northern Holland to during the war, which was not liberated until nineteen forty five and went through the worst winter forty four forty five more people died in talked to you about that a lot the war was very vivid in in in an occupation and living through the occupation. My parents where twelve when the war started seventeen eighteen when the war ended. So their teenage years, they spent through all that time there and your mother lost a lot of her family. My mother was Jewish and spent the first two years of occupation in Holland, but then in pretty harrowing escape with her older sister and mother was able to make it to Switzerland. And she spent the last two years of war there. But the rest of the family was was was an isolated as so many. Others in in Holland some interested in. In how that was talked about in the home. I mean, and what lessons were imparted about that horrible horrible episode in our history. So one thing was it was talked about and in many other families in Europe who went through the war, but including in Holland, the war was not an issue people in talk about it. They were either they wanted to forget about it. They wanted to look to the future in in. My case the dinner table war was was always there in some form. Or another was always a story that had a aspect of either pre war post war or war related that was part of of my upbringing. And I learned a number of things one. I think a deep love and appreciation for the United States. It's one of the reasons I wanted to come here. It was the country that liberated Europe it was the country that liberated. My my family, and that was always important. Both my parents were very much Anglophiles both British in in some ways more than than American. But deeply appreciative of what had happened in the forty forty five. And the second thing that that was important to me was Europe needed to find a way to to avoid having wars, which is which was the first half of the twentieth century and the European project, partly we now know from history, of course, stimulated by the United States. But also something that was deepen the European psyche. The idea that finding ways to cooperate to overcome divisions that had led to extraordinary. Destruction at for so many years. And to. To find a way to have a new chapter in history, no longer war, but peace and cooperation prosperity. And you, of course, became a scholar. Best sort of NATO, and I want down line here. I want to get to what the state the current state of Europe is in these institutions that were built to try and ensure the kind of stability that you that you talk about what what about your your Jewish identity as that. Did you did you identify that way? And how much how much did that play into? What was talked about in your home little particular on the religious site. None. My mother always said, I became a Jew because Hitler told me I was heard you..

"Files with your host, David Axelrod. There are people in life. You meet who inspire you cause you to think who give you hope and right at the top of the list is Bryan Stevenson is devoted his life to representing death row inmates and others who are at the margins of our society, and he's called on us to confront America's tortured history on race by creating the national memorial for peace and Justice in Montgomery to honor the memory of African Americans lynched in the south from reconstruction to the mid twentieth century, and with it a related museum from enslavement to mass incarceration that traces the history of these issues as at that with Bryan Stevenson this week at the institute of politics to talk about his life, his work and the work that America has yet to do. Bryan, Stevenson, it is an honor to be with you to have you here at the institute of politics and here here on the podcast. I when people think of Milton, Delaware. They don't think of it as a segregated place. But in the early sixties when you were growing up there there were still vestiges of of segregation in your in your hometown. Yeah. I think the eastern shore is not well understood I grew up in what we call the Delmarva peninsula. It's the southernmost county of Delaware and the eastern shore of Maryland and Virginia. And of course, that was a huge space during the nineteenth century for enslavement. There were largely populations there and Delaware. Of course was a border state. It was promised that it could keep it since leave people if it stayed out of the civil war. So the emancipation proclamation which only applied to the revealing states of the confederacy it did not apply to states like Delaware, and Maryland and Kentucky, it there was bitter resentment at the end of the civil war when the man to patient was claimed for the entire nation. And you see that legacy of resentment over full emancipation for black people on the eastern shore Delaware didn't ratify the thirteenth amendment until almost the twentieth. Century was thirty forty years after most states had and so we had rigid. Jim crow in my county. There are no high schools for black kids when my dad was a teenager. He couldn't go to high school in our county. And I started my education and a colored school the movie theater was segregated. The beaches were segregated the hotels were segregated. And so. That language of segregation. And exclusion was very much. What I was born in two how'd you process that as a as a child, you know, I I was every every you know, I live in all black community. I went to our church. I didn't really think about it much. My parents like a lot of black families shielded us from the ugliest parts of it. It was actually when integration came that it began to take shape because then you were having these encounters with kids who just thought of you as different when the integrated the schools, I went out on the playground. I actually came over semester earlier than the other black kids because my mom didn't like us going to that little school and for that whole semester. You know, no one was allowed to play with me on the playground. I was very confused by that this was during the time. There was a TV show on those days. Bill Cosby and somebody else Robert Robert Culp, Robert is is five. So there was a young white guy was like I wanna do is spy. You can be. So we were playing I spy and the teacher's aide came over and said, no, no, no, no you can't play with him. And it was just the beginning of the sort of consciousness of exclusion in a very real way..

"Of Chicago institute of politics and CNN the axe files with your host, David Axelrod. Folks, let's deal with the elephant in the room right from the start. I worked for Jeff Zucker at CNN. But that's not why invited him on the acts files, which I think you'll agree. When you hear this conversation may not have been the shrewdest career move of my life. I invited him because his life story is a hell of a yarn and his impact on broadcast journalism has been undeniable. We sat down and talked about all of this last week at CNN headquarters in New York, and yes Zukas long intriguing relationship with Donald Trump did come years that conversation. Jeff zucker. It's good to be with you. Happy to be with you. Thank you for inviting me, so homestead Florida where the whole saga begins. And I'm guessing that these oops in come over on the Mayflower. Now, they did not actually it wasn't just homestead Florida. I was born on Homestead Air Force base. Which was of course, later demolished by Hurricane Andrew. So as I was air force kid my dad, my dad cardiology. My dad was cardiologists in the airforce. He came down from New York met, my mom who is who who grew up her whole life in Miami. Which was very rare for somebody. Era. They met on a blind date down in Miami. And ended up staying there. My dad got assigned to Homestead Air Force base. And that's where I was born. And that's where it all started. And where did the zookeepers come from originally? So this lookers originally came from somewhere in eastern Europe that is probably Poland now somewhere on the poll in Russia border. That has probably changed five times and went to they come over. So they came in the late eighteen hundred before the turn of the century. And you you're always a pug nations little do. Thank you. I mean, you were a. A high school tennis player your coach said you wouldn't settle for being the number two singles guy you had to be the number one. Singles guy, I didn't deserve to be the number tastes ankles player. I was I was worthy of being the number one player. And you got there by I listen, I played tennis my whole life. So so this is really was the most important thing in my life was I started playing tennis when I was six years old and I play tennis every day and. I I was pretty good when I was young. And frankly, you know, I was pretty highly ranked in Florida as as a young kid what happened was by the time. We got to the fourteens and sixteen and unders I didn't grow the way that everybody else grew. And so all these kids who is beating when we were in the ten and unders twelve and unders beginning fourteen hundred they did grow all of a sudden start beating me, and I'm gonna what is going on here. And it's because they had grown, and they could serve and volley. But having said that I still was pretty good. And I played a number one on my high school tennis team tenth eleventh and twelfth grades. But it did allow you to run for class president every year hundred the under the slogan, the little man with the big ideas..

"The axe files with your host, David Axelrod. Folks in politics. It's hard to imagine Senator John McCain without Mark Salter who became his chief of staff his collaborator and co author on seven books, including his last book called the restless wave written in the last months of his life. I sat down with Mark in Washington last week to talk about the man he served so faithfully for so long his friend Senator McCain and the politics of our time as he also is one of the fiercest critics within the Republican party of our sitting President Donald Trump. Mark salter. It's it's good to see you. I haven't seen you personally since Senator McCain passed. So we're going to talk a lot about him. But I just wanted at right at the outset say, I'm sorry for your loss because I know help how close you were. And how much you meant to each other. Thanks, david. I appreciate that. So Davenport, Iowa. From the quad cities right in my neck of the woods. I am by two hours west Chicago. If you're so tell me about tell me about that and grown-up, I you know, when when I was growing up very prosperous in people might tell people I'm from Iowa, I'm from the Iowa side of the quad cities. You know, the the west side of the Mississippi. People think he no I up on a farm or a small town or something. But it's a manufacturing town. There are a lot of farm implement foundries along the river, John Deere's headquartered there, they're big Caterpillar plant Alko has a big plant there, and and you know, up until the eighties. It was a very prosperous thriving happy fun community, I'm Catholic and there were about twelve Catholic parishes. And it was a great place to grow up your. Your mom was a schoolteacher second grade Catholic school and your dad was a salesman for mining company, limestone, mining company Eisold hydrated, lime was venture vice president for hydrated lime sales. What what about politics politics was almost accidental? I never had any particular ambition for it. I grew up in the sixties and seventies in high school in the sixties and seventies and kind of hung out rock and roll was kind of all that interested me, some sports. Didn't didn't go to college? When I graduate didn't have particularly good grades. I was truant a lot of the time and. Got a job working on a railroad how to high school and did that for about four years still. I think we were at derailment and the data winner one night, and we had to fix the track. And it's about twenty below in the winds howl enough the river and everything I thought this got to be a better way to make a living in this..
