This week Congressman Brian Baird (D-WA) welcomes two prominent speech writers, Paul Ozulak and Jeff Nussbaum, founding partners of West Wing Writers, to the show. Before starting their work together, they were speech writers for President Clinton, VP Gore, and more. Their Reasonable Discussion centers on the power of speech writers in an administration and the "how" behind writing a compelling speech.
But first, Bob Inglis (R-SC) and Baird have a Reasonable Discussion on Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) stepping aside. Should more GOP members distance themselves from President Trump, or, was the new Republican Party distance itself from Flake?
