A Conversation With Joy Reid
Drawing on her extensive experience as a correspondent for MSNBC and on her stint in 2008 as press aide for then-Senator Obama’s Florida campaign, Reid, also managing editor of TheGrio.com, profiles the Democratic Party in the age of the Clintons and Obama. Charting the complicated relationship and shifting power dynamics among these three leaders, Reid shows how the interpersonal politics, along with individual strategies, ambitions, and responses to events such as Ferguson have influenced decisions and policies—which, in turn, have shaped and reshaped the Party.
