Bill Kristol comes on to discuss the upheaval in the Republican party over the last 4 years, the future of conservatism, restoring constitutional government, and his hopes for a Biden presidency.

Clay Aiken is joined by Bill Kristol of The Bulwark, Defending Democracy Together, constitutionalgovt.org, and Conversations with Bill Kristol, to take on the aftermath of the Trump administration and examine how our country can come together after the elections.  How do we restore the imperatives of our constitutional government?  Is Biden the vehicle that will allow us all to come together?  And does the future of our country lie with MAGA or on turning over a new page?
