John Nichols is the National Affairs Correspondent for The Nation. He joins us today to talk about his recent book, *The Fight for the Soul of the Democratic Party: The Enduring Legacy of Henry Wallace's Anti-Fascist, Anti-Racist Politics.* Wallace represents the many paths not taken in American history: at several points in the last 70 years, a vibrant and progressive left has emerged within the Democratic party, only to be beaten back by establishment forces. We discuss what his story means for American politics today.
