“We’re kicking off Think Tank with a comprehensive examination of the Democratic Party because many think the party is fractured and divided on critical issues such as taxes, the Green New Deal, or the prospect of impeaching President Trump. These issues must be explored in a responsible and civil fashion. That’s Think Tank. This program is less about ‘horse race’ politics and more about policy, ideology and what it means to be a ‘Democrat’ as we approach the 2020 election and beyond.” —Steve Adubato, Ph.D., Executive Producer & Anchor, Think Tank
