America’s Role in the World and the Role of Democracy at Home

For centuries the United States has grappled with their role domestically and globally as a superpower based on democracy.  National Correspondent for The Atlantic, Jeffrey Goldberg, sits down with four- term South Carolina Senator (R), Lindsey Graham to discuss the changing views on the Confederate Flag, the danger posed by Iran’s nuclear power, the emerging force of ISIS, and the future of the Middle East.  On the domestic front, Graham argues that the history of Confederate Flag sparked a national conversation that has helped Americans engage with issues of structural racism that exist today.  Looking to foreign policy, Graham welcomes the nations who will join the fight against ISIS and Iran to put an end to the continued worldwide threats.
