Caitlyn Jenner, Liz Cheney and the Future of the Republican Party, and Should President Biden Give Away American Companies' Covid Patents?


Is it time for Democrats to start taking Caitlyn Jenner seriously in California? The former Olympiad and reality TV star released a three-minute campaign commercial that has created a lot of buzz about her chances to topple Governor Gavin Newsom in this fallâ??s recall election. Meanwhile in Washington, Congresswoman Liz Cheney seems poised to lose her Republican leadership role in the House, saying that next weekâ??s decision on her fate represents a turning point for the GOP. And in response to international calls to suspend patent laws for Covid vaccines and therapies, the Biden Administration said it would support changes to intellectual property rights, giving foreign companies more access to American technology. Is this the best way to address the global need for vaccines â?? and what are the domestic politics behind Bidenâ??s decision? Tom Bevan, co-founder and president of RealClearPolitics, Carl Cannon, Washingon bureau chief, and Sean Trende, senior elections analyst join moderator Andrew Walworth for todayâ??s RealClearPolitics Takeaway podcast.
