Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes

When a political candidate loses a close election, whose fault is it? And how much does that really matter? We like to believe that our political system shakes out the realities of our candidates, exposing them for who they really are, and that, in the end, who wins or loses simply boils down to whether the people liked what they saw. Understanding why 2016 turned out the way it did will be crucial to every potential future candidate, including President Trump. Our guests in this week’s episode are Washington political reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes. They covered the election and are the authors of "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign."
