“When they go low, we go high,” Michelle Obama famously said during the epically nasty 2016 presidential campaign. But that strategy didn’t win Democrats the White House or Congress.

What will it take for America to make visceral connections with Americans as populism explodes?

Speakers: Cory Booker, Amy Walter
