The Politics of the Iraq Resolution Vote
What made members of Congress vote the way they did on Iraq, and how those votes continue to follow some of them today.
In this bonus episode, Slow Burn’s host Noreen Malone and producer Jayson De Leon discuss interviewing politicians about their Iraq Resolution votes. Then we’ll hear more from Rep. Barbara Lee about the aftermath of her “no” votes, and from veteran political journalist Walter Shapiro about how the political reputation of Democrats at the time might have influenced their decision-making.
