In episode 8, Bob and Ben talk to Mo Elleithee about the Democratic Party and the forces at work in the 2016 election.
Mo spent almost two decades working in key roles for the Democratic Party, serving most recently as Communications Director for the Democratic National Committee. Mo discusses the way his own past as the son of Egyptian immigrants helped shape his world view, and the influence that historic figures such as Franklin Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy had on his decision to work for the Democratic Party. He also tells of the reasons he stepped down from his position in the DNC in 2015 to serve as founding Executive Director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service.
