Candidate Confessional - Defeated Politicians Tell All
About This Show
Everyone loses. But some losses sting worse than others. This is a podcast about tough defeats. Hosts Sam Stein and Jason Cherkis talk to candidates who came up short in their bid for president, governor, senator and other elected office; those defined by YouTube moments and others who fell by painfully close margins.
Looking back, these candidates give the listener an unvarnished, often-emotional picture of what life is really like on the campaign trail.

This Democrat Says The Party Needs To Reinvent Itself In The Era Of Trump
Oct 4 17
Virginia Democrat Tom Perriello lost his congressional seat in the Tea Party wave of 2010. In 2017, he jumped back in the ring with a run for Governor, and his primary race against Ralph Northam was viewed as another skirmish in the broader Democratic party battle between the Bernie wing and the party establishment. Perriello rejects that narrative, but he has some strong opinions about how the party will have the evolve if it wants to compete in the Trump era.

I have not listened to it yet, but it has to be great if Sam Stein is hosting.
I will listen when the new season comes out. Of course, we all want to hear him interview Hillary and people on her team. Also is George H W Bush open to this - he could do it remotely. Bob Dole? Two of the last great republicans and WWII heroes to become and get near the presidency. Both with tons of source material in What It Takes, alone.
