      Joe Biden: American Promise
    • Wednesday, November 15, 2017
    • Joe Biden has always believed that when given a chance, ordinary people can do extraordinary things. As a scrappy kid from Scranton who rose to the Office of Vice President, he is no exception. During his 45 years of public service, one of Biden's greatest strengths has been his ability to bring people together, even in crisis, even across difficult divides, all the while, respecting everybody at the table. Biden will travel the nation for his American Promise Tour, a series of conversations that will go beyond the 24-hour news cycle and 140-character arguments to connect friends and neighbors around the topics that matter most. Biden will reveal the big political moments of his career, the life-altering choices he made, and the key traits that have helped him persevere through challenges. He will share how the loss of his son Beau tested his resolve, and how he is finding new purpose in a time of uncertainty.

      Hillary Clinton: Live
    • Thursday, November 30, 2017

She'll take you with her on her journey and talk about What Happened, what's next, and what's on your mind. What you'll see will be her story -- Live. Her story of resilience, how to get back up after a loss, and how we can all look ahead. It's about Hillary's experience as a woman in politics -- she lets loose on this topic, and others, in a way she never has before.
