Veteran political journalist Dan Morain joins to chat about Steve Poizner, California’s former insurance commissioner who announced this week he wants to get his old job back — only this time by running as an independent, not a Republican.

We talk about all that, along with SEIU’s latest political endorsements and Dan’s brand new job at the indie journalism project, CALmatters.
