Very insightful

Although probably biased, because it’s about the Democrats, Jon Favreau paints a very broad picture of the Democratic Party.
About its history, its current state, various pain points and what is needed to get the DP back on its feet again.

Even as a Dutch citizen I was moved by the stories and the way it was produced.

Very well done.
