"The challenge for Democrats in search of a unified message" PBS NewsHour 7/10/2017


SUMMARY:  Out of power in the House, Senate and White House, what can the Democrats do to gain seats in 2018 and 2020?  Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report and Tamara Keith of NPR join Judy Woodruff to discuss the future of the Democratic party, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ health care rally in Kentucky, and Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer in June 2016.

AMY WALTER, The Cook Political Report:  And this goes to the challenge, Judy, which is, when you’re a party that has been successful, as Republicans were successful in the last few years, by being basically the party of no, right, they were against everything that Democrats and President Obama stood for, that was successful to get them a governing — or a political majority, but not a governing majority.
