David Axelrod, the architect of the Obama presidency, joins the Federalist Radio Hour. Once the Administration’s top political advisor, Axelrod now gives Ben his take on the race for the White House in 2016.
While he believes that Donald Trump can never win, Axelrod admits that there’s an “element of outrage that he speaks to by being outrageous.” On the other aisle of the race, Axelrod admits that he enjoys watching Bernie Sanders, comparing that candidate to “a great summer fling because he won’t be around long.”
A seasoned veteran of campaigns at all levels, Axelrod also discussed his new book, “Believer: My Forty Years in Politics.”
Later on the program, Elizabeth Brown the staff editor of Reason.Com explains “the unbearable smugness” of the newest contender for the GOP nomination, Ohio Governor John Kasich. Finally, David Stiles of the Free Beacon places the Iran nuclear deal in its American political context.
