322 | Jeremi Suri: America's Unfinished War Over Democracy

Jeremi Suri, author of Civil War by Other Means: America’s Long and Unfinished Fight for Democracy and The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office, joins The Realignment to discuss the history of debates over how America should implement its democratic ideals. Jeremi and Marshall also discuss how and why the "democracy" issue defined the midterms in battleground states, expanding responsiveness within the political system, and his critiques of the status quo.
