Of what significance is UAW’s support of a ceasefire in Gaza in light of this endorsement, and how should a left that is invested in the power of unions to influence politics in a progressive direction be feeling about an endorsement that seems to come without any foreign policy concessions from the Biden administration? Also, Brie and Bill discuss writing political fiction, and the prospect of a Civil-War-style standoff at the Texas border.
