ALMOST PRESIDENT: THE AGONY OF DEFEAT TO AIR ON CNN ON WEDNESDAY, September 14th
CNN SPECIAL REPORT HOSTED BY CNN CHIEF POLITICAL ANALYST GLORIA BORGER
WASHINGTON, D.C. – August. 23, 2016 – In Almost President, CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger tells a story that has not been told before: four men, sharing their accounts of how they lived through the most public failure in American life. Mitt Romney, John McCain, Michael Dukakis, and Walter Mondale detail their journeys – from years of reaching the pinnacle of American politics, their moments of greatest triumph, all the way to the moment that each man knew – in one night – it was all over.
In a series of interviews that took place over the last three years, each candidate analyzes his own mistakes, the impact on their families, the pain of knowing they will always be branded as ‘almost president.' By and large, they’re still not over it, but they would all do it all over again.
In her first TV interview since revealing that she is not supporting Donald Trump, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) talks exclusively with Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel, stating, “The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans. When he showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for their terrible loss and instead attacked the two gold star parents, and also attacked their religion. That was just the final straw for me.” When asked if she’d vote for Hillary Clinton, Sen. Collins responded, “I really don't anticipate voting for Hillary.”
On when she decided she wasn’t going to support Donald Trump:
“The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans. When he showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for their terrible loss and instead attacked the two gold star parents, and also attacked their religion. That was just the final straw for me.”
On why she is not supporting Donald Trump:
“Donald Trump, in my judgment, would make a perilous world even more dangerous. I worry that his tendency to lash out and his ill-informed comments would cause dangerous events to escalate and possibly spin out of control at a time when our world is beset with conflict.”
