I think she very much likes the idea of the firm being led by women, but understands the optics of it being dominated by someone white,” said McDonald. “It’s a difficult dance she has to do, because she also very much respects Diane.

Robert King said during the panel, moderated by NPR’s Eric Deggans, that the show won’t look to present “easy answers,” as this storyline unfolds.“I don’t know if we’ll have any resolution. I think the show speaks to how intelligent human beings are trying to find the language of reconciliation, and trying to figure it out,” added Baranski. “We’re living the questions. We don’t have answers; we’re walking question marks.”

Both Baranski and McDonald praised Robert King and co-creator/showrunner/EPMichelle Kingfor their willingness to examine complex subjects with total authenticity. “What I always say about the Kings is they always step up to the line…and say, ‘This is what’s happening’ and shine a light on it,” said McDonald. “They’re not afraid to get messy, and that’s what happens this season: It gets messy.”

While Michelle King said the show’s examination of “Liz and Diane’s struggle with each other in their partnership” might not have come about, if not for the events of the past year, she’s wary to touch yet on their long-term impact on TV storytelling. “In terms of impact on the industry, that will be a great discussion to have in two years because I think it will [reveal] how much of this talk [of change] is real. Because three years ago, people were very interested in #MeToo and what that meant for women, and we don’t hear much of that talk anymore,” she said. “So, while we hope that conversation will be ongoing, it’s a little bit of ‘We’ll see.’”

David Plouffe on what Democrats can learn from Obamacare fightDavid Plouffe, former campaign manager and senior adviser to President Obama, joins Lawrence O’Donnell to discuss the lessons from the fight to pass the Affordable Care Act, and how they can be used to help enact infrastructure and voting rights legislation. Plouffe says Democrats have the power and they need to use it because “you never know when that’s going to change.” Republicans are in a frenzy over midterms, have in plain language stated their intentions. If Democrats allow them to win because it’s to hard to get out and vote in record numbers again, we deserve to lose. Democrats must continue to fight for the maximum good for people & the future generations. Republicans want to dominate the process of dispensing what they think is good for the people. The GOP wants control of the people. They don’t follow a government by, of & for the people.
