It’s the election that never seems to end, but with President-Elect Biden putting together a cabinet and Trump’s legal challenges floundering across the country, Al and James are looking ahead to 2021.  Georgia maven Stephen Fowler (https://twitter.com/stphnfwlr?lang=en) joins the show to discuss the facts on the ground and his expectations for the Senate races there.  Then Senator Chris Dodd (https://twitter.com/senchrisdodd) comes on to share his optimism for the Biden administration and his surprising hopes for bi-partisanship between Biden and McConnell.  The question is, will the country be able to move on with them?

The Biden era is finally beginning, and his cabinet and prospective agenda are already exciting people across the political spectrum.  Al and James are fired up, and talk to political maven Bill Kristol (https://twitter.com/BillKristol) about the prospects for the Republican party, and why he’s a fan of Biden and the Democrats after Trump.  Then, journalist and author of Joe Biden: The Life, The Run, and What Matters Now, Evan Osnos (https://www.evanosnos.com/) , comes on to tell us about the real Biden and what we can expect from his administration internationally.  Verdict is, it’s looking good!

With Biden the presumptive President-Elect, James and Al take a moment to celebrate the win, despite wishing that the Democratic party had worked harder on its messaging.  They’re joined by Ed Luce (https://twitter.com/EdwardGLuce?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor) of the Financial Times and Tom Edsall (https://twitter.com/Edsall?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor) of the New York Times to discuss how the international order will change under a Biden Administration and whether the party can mend the growing schism between the work and moderate wings of the party.  Either way, it’s a whole new world...

Sarah Silverman (https://twitter.com/SarahKSilverman?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor) is excited about the Biden campaign, but worries that we are losing the cause of progress to our cultural divisions. Meanwhile election day is only 2 weeks away, and over 41 million voters have already cast their ballots.  Michael McDonald (https://twitter.com/ElectProject?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor) of the United States Elections Project (http://www.electproject.org/) goes over how things look.  And so far, the early voting seems to indicate a groundbreaking year for Democrats, but in election season, anything can happen.  Can we look forward to normalcy after November 3rd?  LISTEN TO THE SARAH SILVERMAN PODCAST (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-sarah-silverman-podcast/id1533130572) EMAIL YOUR QUESTIONS TO JAMES AND AL POLITICSWARROOM@GMAIL.COM (mailto:POLITICSWARROOM@GMAIL.COM)   OR TWEET THEM TO @POLITICON (http://www.twitter.com/@politicon) THIS WEEKS SPONSORS: STEADYMD  (00:12:27) SteadyMD is now accepting members of all ages, in all 50 states. go to http://www.steadymd.com/warroom to TAKE THE FREE QUIZ AND SEE WHICH DOCTOR IS A PERFECT FIT FOR YOU.  BLINKIST  (00:37:41) Right now, for a limited time Blinkist has a special offer just for our listeners:  Go to http://www.blinkist.com/warroom to TRY IT FREE FOR 7 DAYS AND SAVE 25% OFF YOUR NEW SUBSCRIPTION.

With only weeks to go, gigantic sums of campaign cash have washed over the electoral landscape, but when the country is this polarized does money still talk?  James and Al are starting to become optimistic about a Biden election, and think this might be his chance to expand the map.  University of Houston’s Dr. Richard Murray (https://uh.edu/hobby/community/murray-scholarship/murraybio.pdf) reviews the possibility of flipping reliably red states, while Founder and President of Democracy 21 (https://democracy21.org/) Fred Wertheimer (https://twitter.com/fredwertheimer?lang=en) discusses the role of cash in 2020 strategy and where it comes from.  After listening to them, do you think this is the year that the Democrats shock in the south?

The President and his team have been infected with the Coronavirus, giving new significance to the phrase October Surprise.  But even though James and Al think an electoral blow out is coming, it’s too early for Democrats to get comfortable— there are too many threats.  Guest Professor Kathleen Belew (https://twitter.com/kathleen_belew?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor) details the rise of white supremacist movements and their plans for overthrowing the United States, while former DOJ Fraud Section Chief Andrew Weissmann (https://twitter.com/aweissmann_?lang=en) tells us that Bill Barr has downplayed the foreign plans to affect our elections.  Is our country at risk once again?

The first presidential debate is over and James and Al declare Joe Biden the clear winner. Following favorable post-debate coverage across the platforms, and with mail-in ballot use breaking records and banking Democratic votes, it’s not looking good for President Trump.  Ben Ginsburg wonders whether he's running effectively as an incumbent or if the party will collapse after he leaves office.  Meanwhile Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman (https://twitter.com/michaelbcoleman) questions recent Democratic strategy in the Ohio battleground and whether the Biden campaign is repeating Hillary’s mistakes in misunderstanding the electorate there.

With the election only 6 weeks away and Democrats confronted with a surprise conservative Supreme Court nomination, worries are rising about the strength of Biden’s candidacy.  Senator Cory Booker (https://twitter.com/CoryBooker) has some reassuring words for the concerned, tells us about the equalizing power of baby bonds, and the feeling that this election is a moral moment for the nation.  Meanwhile, Sean McElwee (https://twitter.com/SeanMcElwee) discusses the difficulties of uniting the left, and his belief that progressives will unite behind Biden in November.
A major contributing factor to Trump's success in 2016 was his love-hate relationship with the mainstream media. Whether it was giving the then-candidate a disproportionate amount of free press, or an unwillingness to be critical in a misguided attempt to appear balanced, news agencies everywhere unwittingly aided and abetted the President's rise to power. Now journalist James Fallows (https://www.ourtownsbook.com/about/view/james-fallows) argues they have neither learned their lesson nor are they willing to be held accountable for their irresponsible behavior. Also, author Deborah Fallows (https://www.ourtownsbook.com/about/view/deborah-fallows) suggests that in remaining hyper-focused on the "sport" of national politics, little attention is ever given to the real needs and interests of communities outside urban coastal areas.
Whether you’re convinced that nothing stands between Trump and another four years in the White House, or you manage to keep faith in the hope Biden’s campaign provides, it behooves all of us to be fully prepared as to what might happen once the vote counts come in on Election Night. United Nations Foundation vice chair and former U.S. Senator Timothy E. Wirth (https://unfoundation.org/who-we-are/our-board/timothy-e-wirth-usa-vice-chair/) shines a light on all kinds of clandestine efforts the President might pursue in order to obfuscate or nullify a Democratic victory. But as the nation focuses on the election, Los Angeles Time Joseph Serna (https://www.latimes.com/people/joseph-serna) reminds us that the threat of climate change creates all kinds of future problems, not the least of which have  been manifested by the recent California wildfires.
While Trump's outrageous behavior may still shock some, there are plenty of the most savvy and seasoned political veterans who see him for what he really is: a desperate charlatan who is capable of anything. Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft president Andrew Bacevich (https://quincyinst.org/author/abacevich/) is even able to look forward, beyond this dark period, to the larger issues America faces as a global player. Dr. Michael P. McDonald (https://polisci.ufl.edu/michael-mcdonald/) , professor of political science at the University of Florida, predicts a brighter future for Democrats. And Texas Democratic Party consultant Billy Begala (https://www.texasdemocrats.org/) enjoys a hearty laugh at the recent follies of Trump supporters in his state.
Any opponent of Donald Trump has their work cut out for them, as his use of disinformation, dishonesty and disorder are unprecedented. So the U.S. representative from Pennsylvania's 17th congressional district Conor Lamb (https://lamb.house.gov/) fully understands the rough road ahead for Vice President Biden over the next few months. Yet Lamb also is keenly aware of the candidate's realist perspective, and just how useful that will be for campaigning in the part of his state often referred as "Trump country." Plus Dr. Rashawn Ray (https://www.brookings.edu/experts/rashawn-ray/) , a David M. Rubenstein Fellow in Governance Studies at The Brookings Institution and Professor of Sociology and Executive Director of the Lab for Applied Social Science Research at the University of Maryland, College Park lends his considerable expertise to the conversation on what should be done in the wake of the protests throughout the nation.
Charlie Cook (https://twitter.com/charliecookdc) of the Cook Political Report (https://cookpolitical.com/) handicaps the Presidential race coming out of the conventions as Biden's lead stays consistent. UNC Professor (https://marine.unc.edu/people/faculty/rick-luettich/) Dr. Rick Luettich (https://twitter.com/rluettich) shares his expertise on hurricanes heading into storm season. James and Al react to the conclusion of the Republican National Convention at the White House as a truly bizarre experience.
Senator Jeff Flake (https://twitter.com/JeffFlake) separates Conservatism from Trumpism seeking to reclaim the soul of the Republican Party while Wall Street Journal Executive Washington Editor Gerald F Seib (https://twitter.com/geraldfseib) examines Reagan as the precursor to Trump in his new book 'We Should Have Seen It Coming: FROM REAGAN TO TRUMP–A FRONT-ROW SEAT TO A POLITICAL REVOLUTION. (https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/611075/we-should-have-seen-it-coming-by-gerald-f-seib/) ' Meanwile, James Carville pursues discussion with both guests on the concept that the base of the Republican party is preoccupied by racial resentment laying the foundation for Donald Trump to capitalize on this by speaking directly to the issue where others would not, and he was, in turn, embraced by Republican voters.
Senator Michael Bennet, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, reflects on the Committee’s bipartisan report on Russia's interference in our elections, the US Government's response to prevent a repeat of 2016 this November, the details of Steve Bannon's indictment representative of the Trump Administration's serial corruption, and a recap of the Democratic National Convention.
House Majority Whip James Clyburn champions the House bill to save the Post Office securing American's right to vote-by-mail. The Democratic Congressman from South Carolina discusses the races in his home state, Biden's strong pick of Kamala Harris as his running mate, and Michelle Obama's speech at the DNC. James and Al truly wish they were in Milwaukee, and dissect the latest revelations from the Senate Intelligence Committee which point to mounting evidence of collusion.

When Janes lamented that on Thursday morning he felt he could no longer go on because trump's popularity is incomprehensible, that is exactly how I felt. But I have too go on, just like him.

Well wasn't that brave of him? He's always been known to be courageous, you know. They used to call him the Lion of the Senate. He was the bravest of the bunch, a scared mouse among blind mice.
