    I like listening to non-bombastic interviews of someone who knows what he is talking about, like this one.

    On  the question of the different factions of Democrats, I see the primary split between “lifestyle liberals” and “economic liberals”.  Lifestyle liberals emphasize issues like abortion, environment, & alternate lifestyles.  Economic liberals emphasize issues like unions, immigration, & foreign trade.  They have two different voter bases, and in some ways are not compatible.  The national Democrats now lean towards the lifestyle liberals which has left many economic liberals out in the cold.  Trump’s one big political insight is to directly address the concerns of the economic liberals.
