About The Show

David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager, digs into what the candidates are trying to accomplish in their messaging, why they are making the campaign stops they are, whether they can recover from crisis…and what is their pathway to the Democratic Nomination….then from there, the road to the White House. Plouffe’s guests are the campaign managers, the state directors, the field organizers on the ground - they don’t have opinions about what is happening, they know what is happening.
