Elections 2016- Dog Whistles, Walk Backs,and Washington handshakes
David Mark will discuss how political language is affecting the 2016 presidential race. White House candidates have already uttered a series of memorable phrases, including Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, seeking the GOP nomination, who has repeatedly touted his own "courage." Then there's Hillary Clinton's pledge to fight for "everyday Americans," a twist on the notion of the common man (and woman) invoked for decades by office-seekers of both parties. And Donald Trump has virtually built his own political vocabulary while soaring to the top of the Republican field.

David, an editor at CNN Politics, in Washington, D.C., will also evaluate the current state of the Republican and Democratic nomination fights, and discuss what trends are on the horizon.

David's book, with co-author Chuck McCutcheon, Dog Whistles, Walk-Backs and Washington Handshakes: Decoding The Jargon Slang and Bluster of American Political Speech, decodes what politicians really mean when they use odd-sounding, insider-ish phrases. They're out with an updated eBook focusing on the 2016 presidential race, Doubletalk: The Language, Code, and Jargon of a Presidential Election.
