What a time to be President of the United States. With impending elections for the Senate, House, and Presidency, The Atlantic National Correspondent Franklin Foer opens up the first two years of the Biden presidency to us with his new book of sweeping political reporting, The Last Politician.
Consider what Biden emerged from when he walked into the White House as President in 2021: the brutality of the pandemic on all fronts; the January 6 insurrection; a nation torn apart; and more. Foer examines Biden’s ambitious economic platform; his controversial Afghanistan pullout; Biden’s massive spending bills; his spending on clean energy; the election deniers; and his support of Ukraine.
Foer takes us up to and into the midterm elections with this portrait of a president who has been a deal maker all of his political life, a president who has made enormous accomplishments on international and domestic fronts, but who has struggled to maintain the support of many of those in his own party.
In conversation with Amy Chozick, the New York Times reporter and bestselling author of Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling. In this wildly popular book, Chozick irreverently and sometimes painfully candidly covers Hillary through her two presidential runs, her endless miles criss-crossing the country on the trail. Chozick’s backstories of the campaign are so revealing about critical campaign decisions– and about maneuvering her life to fit everything in. Her HBO series, Girl on the Bus, was adapted from Chasing Hillary.
