Perhaps you've seen one of the dozens of voter panels with Trump supporters that I have moderated on "New Day" over the past five years.

How RBG went from a 'moderate' choice to a fiery dissenter

When President Bill Clinton selected Ruth Bader Ginsburg as the nominee from his Supreme Court shortlist in 1993, women's groups—both conservative and liberal—raised concerns. As we discuss in our book "Shortlisted," some feminists criticized Ginsburg's position on equality as one that ignored the historic oppression of women.
