How to Persuade Skeptics, by Al Franken

Harold Pollack is a professor at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration and Special Correspondent for The Treatment.

I’m too square to really enjoy Senator Al Franken’s comedy routine, but I do enjoy his policy wonk routine when he is talking health reform. I really like that he can talk to skeptical older voters about this stuff. 

Democratic politicians from the President on down--watch this clip. Then go and do thou likewise.
