Special Episode 2: Primary Colors
In Special Episode #2, “Primary Colors,” Elizabeth and Flourish discuss Primary Colors, the movie (starring John Travolta and Emma Thompson) based on the book (by an anonymous author later revealed to be Joe Klein, journalist at Newsweek). The film follows the 1992 Democratic primary campaign of “Jack Stanton,” a character loosely (uh, or heavily) based on Bill Clinton, and it serves as a jumping off point for discussion of why both Elizabeth and Flourish really, fundamentally like Hillary Clinton—and find her life and story both depressing and inspiring.

Oh, and if you’re wondering if Elizabeth was right in saying that Bernie was a way less effective legislator than Hillary? Yeah, she’s right.
