Description

This week, the NPR Politics Podcast investigates defining moments in the lives of four top Democratic presidential candidates to understand how those experiences shape their politics today.

Joe Biden's first attempt at running for president — during the 1988 election — ended so quickly that it was still 1987 when he dropped out. But that failure came at the same moment that Joe Biden won a major victory for Democrats: preventing President Reagan's Supreme Court nominee, Robert Bork, from being confirmed.

This episode: campaign correspondent Asma Khalid, campaign correspondent Scott Detrow, and White House correspondent Tamara Keith.

please stop telling people to go your Facebook page. Use something else. Facebook is worse then cigarettes & opiates & you haven't any idea what their long term plans are using our kids! The EU fined Facebook for helping candidates "CHEAT" in 2016 THE USA encourage the cheating Trump spends a million a week on Facebook spreading lies & selling YOUR & MY DATA.. and they encourage Russia to do so. Facebook is predown loaded on EVERY FUCKNG THING & I STILL opps can't get it off my phone after a year.
