Politics with Amy Walter: "The X Factor": Will Joe Biden Reshape the Race?
Joe Biden officially announced that he is running for the nation's top job on Thursday. As candidate number 20, he is entering a historically crowded race. Does he have what it takes to stand out from the pack?Â We check in with two campaign reporters,Â Juana SummersÂ from The Associated Press, andÂ Annie LinskeyÂ from The Washington Post, who tell us about what voters seem to be looking for when trying to choose between the candidates.Â For our Biden digest, we turn toÂ Mike Memoli, of NBC News, who has been following Biden's career on the national stage for over a decade. He explains what he thinks we canÂ expect from Bidenâ€™s third attempt to reach the highest office.Â Borys Krawczeniuk, of the Scranton Times-Tribune, gives us the view from Biden's hometown. AndÂ Aimee Allison, the founder of the political groupÂ She the People, says he has some serious obstacles to overcome if he wants to do well with black women voters.Â Plus, Bloomberg'sÂ Joshua GreenÂ has been out on the campaign trail trying to gauge where voters stand on the issue of impeachment. His verdict? They are pretty ambivalent.Â Amy's Final Take: After the Â 2016 election, the Â media was criticized for spending too much time in D.C. absorbed in our Twitter bubbles. Voters were telling us the story of the election, but we werenâ€™t listening to it. Three years later, the Washington, D.C. and Twitter echo chambers are obsessed with talk of "impeachment" and "Russia" yet thatâ€™s not what voters or presidential candidates are talking about out in the states. Â My sense, from listening to voters and to the reporters who are on the ground covering them, is that Democratic voters are more pragmatic than prescriptive. The grassroots demand for Congress to start impeachment just doesn't seem to be there. Now, should Trump win re-election, I'd expect that pragmatism to give way to all out panic and push-back. That may change, but for now, we should take the lessons of 2016 to heart and stop trying to make the narrative fit neatly into a box we have already pre-built. The race for 2020 has a LONG way to go. The best way to understand where itâ€™s headed is to watch it unfold at its own pace, not the one being set by cable TV.

Cookies of Christmas Past
In Western culture, what's the most important Christmas food? The Christmas cookie! There are entire baking competition TV series about the creation and decoration of Christmas cookies. There are entire family traditions about families baking and distributing Christmas cookies. There are secret recipes, national recipes, traditional recipes. In fact, it's become kind-of an obsession in the United States. I'm reaching back to the late 19th- and early 20th-century for cookie recipes (along with one cruller recipe and a few candy recipes) to give you a feel for how Americans fed their guests with sweet holiday treats. Some of the recipes are actually European, but they hold on fiercely here in the States. And to other countries, I give my apologies - I used newspapers.com with broad keywords, but I couldn't find cookies in the Canadian and British newspapers that came up. Lots of cakes and puddings, but no cakes that were actually cookies. I promise that I will do an episode based on your newspapers in 2019! Keep it sweet, my pumpkins, however you spend the next few weeks. 2019 is going to be better.
