Following last night's Democratic primary debate, candidate Tom Steyer called into my show today.

I'm nothing if not honest, so I shared with him what I've said on this program many times. He listened, though I'm not sure he heard what I was saying. Hear it for yourself at the top of the show. As for the debate last night, well, we talked about it and played some clips. [...]
