Ryan Grim (@ryangrim), DC bureau chief at The Intercept, Young Turks contributor and author of the new book, We’ve Got People: From Jesse Jackson to AOC, the End of Big Money and the Rise of a Movement, joins us. The AOC quote that inspired the book's title. How the leadership of the Democratic Party resisted Jesse Jackson's progressive 1988 campaign. Are the differences within the Democratic Party dispositional or ideological? How party elites are still using McGovern's failed 1972 campaign as a cudgel against the left. How the DCCC blacklist made it harder for Bernie Sanders to find campaign staff. Joe Biden's atrocious record on issues important to progressives. Elizabeth Warren's history as a legislator and creator of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
