Rank #1: Which 2020 Democrat should Donald Trump most be afraid of?

Podcast cover
Read more
To get the inside view from the only people in the world who know what it’s like to run in a primary field so large -- and do so in the shadow of Donald Trump -- we invited the strategists for four of the top GOP primary campaigns of 2016 into a Washington cigar bar, a literal smoke-filled room, to talk shop. Which Democratic candidate has the most raw political talent? What weaknesses of Donald Trump's would they exploit in 2020? And why is everybody still so ticked off about the Virginia primary?

Guests Danny Diaz (from the Bush campaign), Beth Hansen (Kasich), Jeff Roe (Cruz), and Terry Sullivan (Rubio).

Rank #7: Joe Manchin: How Trump is losing red-state Democrats

Podcast cover
Read more
Joe Manchin is a rare breed: a West Virginia Democrat and self-proclaimed “radical moderate.” He's one of 10 Senate Democrats up for reelection in 2018 in states that Trump won. Red-state Democrats like Manchin should have been putty in the president’s hands. Instead, he’s alienated them to the point that he’s neither feared nor loved.

Rank #14: John Dean: Nixon ‘might have survived if there'd been a Fox News’ — Reprise

Podcast cover
Read more
This week, an encore presentation of an interview we first brought you earlier this year. John Dean was the star witness of the Watergate investigation — the counsel to President Richard Nixon who famously flipped and became the prosecution’s star witness in the process that helped take down the president. The Russia scandal is far from over, said Dean, but Trump has advantages that Nixon didn’t.

“There’s social media, there’s the internet; the news cycles are faster. I think Watergate would have occurred at a much more accelerated speed than the 928 days it took to go from the arrest at the Watergate to the conviction of Haldeman and Ehrlichman and [John] Mitchell, et al.,” Dean told Off Message host Isaac Dovere in our first episode of 2018. “There’s more likelihood [Nixon] might have survived if there’d been a Fox News.”

POLITICO's Off Message podcast is hosted by Isaac Dovere and is part of the Panoply network. Zack Stanton is its producer. Theme music by Podington Bear.
