Joe Biden has struck a penitent note ever since a New York magazine piece described a very uncomfortable interaction between him and a Nevada politician a few years back. But how far does forced contrition go in the #MeToo era — especially when your reputation precedes you? Adam Reilly talks it over with Wilnelia Rivera, the president of Rivera Consulting and senior advisor to Ayanna Pressley’s groundbreaking 2018 congressional run. Also discussed: the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s eyebrow-raising move to crack down on campaigns just like Pressley’s, which have energized the party but also raised fears among the Democratic old guard. After Reilly and Rivera chat, Peter Kadzis offers his own take on this awkward Democratic moment.
