POLITICO Dispatch: August 19 It might be Joe Biden's convention, but Michelle and Barack are the stars. We break down why Michelle's speech wowed viewers on Monday — and what to expect from Biden's former boss tonight.

But I helped elect a lot of Republicans. My firm, which I left a year and a half ago, was more successful at electing Republicans than anyone else. And this is how the party has ended up. So how could I not have some responsibility? I can't square that circle. There's a genre of book that's very popular in Washington: "If Only They Had Listened to Me." I didn't want to write that book, because they did listen to me!

GRUNWALD: You write about how you worked for Ridge, for Weld, for Charlie Baker, for Larry Hogan, for Phil Scott. But those are the guys who don't support Trump. And Romney, who's now the voice of the resistance. But you had clients who were maybe more relevant to your thesis who you didn't write about at all.
