Our nation’s capital was home to a rare political behavior Thursday: Bipartisanship.
It began with Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat, who introduced Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, at a health care hearing. Both praised the other for their commitment to “bipartisan cooperation.” But the biggest bipartisan shock happened Wednesday – much to Republican chagrin - when President Donald Trump sided with House and Senate Democratic leaders on a solution to the debt ceiling and relief funding for Hurricane Harvey. During the campaign, Trump often touted his skills as a deal-maker.
Former Congressman, now interim director of Harvard’s Institute of Politics, Bill Delahunt, and Boston Globe columnist Scot Lehigh joined Jim Braude to discuss if this is the start of a new chapter in Washington or just Trump being Trump.
