Weird World of Presidential Politics with Political Guru Glenn W. Smith

Noted political analyst and Democratic consultant Smith helps us make some sense out of the madness!

Rag Radio VT-2

Trump vs. the Pope! Bernie vs. Hillary! The Republicans vs. Sanity! Progress Texas PAC director and Rag Radio political analyst Glenn W. Smith joins Thorne Dreyer in a discussion of — YES! — the weird world of presidential politics.

We talk about Nevada and South Carolina, the Texas primary and Super Tuesday. And the GOP’s refusal to entertain an Obama Supreme Court nominee — and the political impact that could have moving forward. We address the mudslinging and name-calling between some in the Clinton and Sanders camps. And much more!
