IT TAKES A WOMAN IN POLITICS

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

It Takes A Woman is one of the great songs from one of the great Broadway musicals of all-time Hello Dolly and women are very much at the forefront of our political lives today. Think of the most powerful women in America today: Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Dr.Deborah Birx who, love her scarves or not, holds our lives in her Trump-powered hands. And think that in January 2019, the largest number of women ever elected to Congress was sworn in—87 in the house and 23 in the Senate. This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we take a look at the power of women in the 116th Congress with veteran New York Times Capitol Hill reporter, Jennifer Steinhauer, whose new book THE FIRSTS: THE INSIDE STORY OF THE WOMEN RESHAPING CONGRESS is a must read. As always, Halli and her partner in politics, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice all things politics in this week’s conversation on the political scene. The podcast is posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and is available on all your favorite apps.

IT TAKES A WOMAN IN POLITICS

We begin with Halli and Matt. Over sixty-thousand Americans are dead from Covid-19 and the virus continues to spread. Yet Trump is pushing to open up the economy. Is he trying to kill us all? Republican governors are going along with the plan, ignoring the standards set by Trump’s own task force. Presumed Democratic Party presidential candidate, Joe Biden, is rising in the polls, and Trump is not happy with his campaign’s team. Is long-time South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham’s re-election bid in trouble? Where oh where is Kim Jong Un? And we’re just beginning.

It Takes a Woman

It takes a woman doesn’t begin to cut it. But one hundred years after earning the right to vote, women make up only twenty-five percent of Congress. Still, the history-making Class of ’19 includes many remarkable firsts. And Rhashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Deb Haaland, Abigail Spamburger, Ilhan Omar, Kysten Sinema and her hot pink dress and metallic heels, Katie “Yes, We have to fix this shit” Porter became household names. How are they making a difference? The story of this transitional moment has been chronicled by veteran New York Times Capitol Hill reporter, Jennifer Steinhauer, who has been following this historic transition from day one. She reports her findings in her new book THE FIRSTS: THE INSIDE STORY OF THE WOMEN RESHAPING CONGRESS, a dizzying ride into what makes a Congresswoman, and how they navigate that ride.Tune in.

It takes a woman, Nancy Pelosi, Dr. Birx, the Coronavirus, Donald Trump, Joe Biden and Election 2020, Stacey Abrams, Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida, Florida, Florida, and we’re just beginning.

LOU DOBBSBroadcaster Lou Dobbs needs no introduction.

Dobbs was born in Texas and lived there and in Idaho during his childhood.

MICHELLE DEEMMorality? Politics? An oxymoron? In her recently released book, SAVING AMERICA’S GRACE author and marriage and family therapist, Michelle Deen, lends her considerably effective voice to a discussion of morality in politics and culture and the search for a common ground in our deeply divided national political argument. According to Deem, politics and family dynamics are intertwined. Mapping out a blueprint for change, Deen challenges both the Left and the Right to jointly construct a new and clear moral objective to rebuild a national character that inspires and leads to an American culture that is smart, strong, compassionate, empathetic, and plays by rules that shed the paternalistic authoritarian, religiosity of the past that has divided our dysfunctional nation.

Legendary broadcaster and author Lou Dobbs, moralist Michelle Deem, politics, Putin, Donald Trump, Republican, Democrat, the culture war, religion, family values — we have it all on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
