This week’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump just happened to fall on the birthday of our pal, Politico Contributing Editor, and our favorite Blogginghead, Bill Scher. He joins us in the shack to talk about the debate, Donald’s chances, and the final few weeks of this most unusual election season. As always, we end up feeling a little bit better.
Friend of the show Bill Scher stops by to talk about his latest piece for Politico, the value Bernie brings to the presidential race, and what a winning strategy might look like. Also, Bill and Jaz discuss the damage caused by Bill Cosby’s “moral authority.”
The next presidential election isn’t happening for a year and half, but the hats are already starting to pile up in the proverbial ring. Hillary finally made her official – and much anticipated – announcement, and the Republican contenders are lining up to try and take her down. Our friend (and neighbor) Bill Scher takes time from his busy schedule writing for the Campaign for America’s Future and Politico, and appearing on MSNBC, to handicap the candidates with us.
Also, Bill muses about a rather monumental birthday coming up. Please, no party hats.
Midterm elections are happening Tuesday November 4th, and they’re making us as anxious and cranky as, well, midterm exams used to. Our friend and frequent MSNBC guest Bill Scher takes some time from his busy schedule writing for Campaign for America’s Future and other publications to try and soothe us. We also give our take on some of the local races, and discuss some of the philosophical debates raised by the ballot questions – for instance, why is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts supporting a monopoly? Why can’t our downtown businesses get the same guarantees of no competition from the state? These and other spleen ventings await you in this extra long episode of The Bill Dwight Show!
