Thought this was a great interview with James Carville - as someone who feels pretty center left, this mostly makes sense to me: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/22338417/james-carville-democratic-party-biden-100-days Fellow fish, where do you think the missing links are for the dems to win on these issues?

Also, I’ve heard comp is ok and typically lower than consulting (and WAY lower than the investment teams…) and mostly concentrated among the top dogs. Accurate? Anyone know people who took this path?

My parents shamed me when I get anything good since I was a kid.
