Dan Pfeiffer: A Plan to Make America a Democracy Again
Few people know politics better than “Pod Save America” co-host and best-selling author Dan Pfeiffer. With the 2020 election on the horizon, Pfeiffer offers a candid look at the current state of our political landscape and explains how Democrats can dismantle Trumpist politics and take back the White House.
According to Pfeiffer, conservatives have rigged American politics to drown out the voices of the people in favor of the powerful. He argues that without an aggressive response that recognizes who the Republicans are and what they have done, American democracy as we know it won't survive this moment, and a conservative, shrinking, mostly white minority will govern the country for decades.
Pfeiffer was one of President Barack Obama’s longest-serving advisers, working on two presidential campaigns and spending six years in the White House as communications director and senior adviser to the president.
