Here is a direct link to a video of a brief but insightful discussion on PBS (on July 27, 2016) chaired by Gwen Ifill, joined by New York Times columnist David Brooks, syndicated columnist Mark Shields, and Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report.

Shields suggests Clinton is missing an opportunity by not pursuing disaffected Republicans turned off by Donald Trump.
I urge you to check it out amidst the swamp gas, flimflam, and flapdoodle that now continue to inundate us, political rhetoric “full of sound and fury and signifying nothing.”
