This week on “The Tent,” we reconnect with former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) to talk about the virtual 2020 Democratic National Convention (DNC) and a forward-looking vision of what the federal government can accomplish in 2021. McAuliffe also discusses how eliminating the filibuster could defuse the tension between ideology and pragmatism in the Senate. In the news this week, our hosts unpack the U.S. Postal Service crisis and reflect on the historic speeches made at the DNC.
