Mike Barnicle talks with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham

On MSNBC's Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham discuss the unlikely friendship between U.S. Supreme Court justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia, who often held opposing ideologies. "Could you imagine Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) sitting down and having similar conversations? In the space of a mere 20 years, the entire political system has changed, and largely because of the emphasis on money and fundraising," says Mike of why collegiality, such as that which was enjoyed between Justices Ginsburg and Scalia, is rarely seen in U.S. politics today. Listen to the rest of Mike's comments here and watch the conversation on Justice Scalia, who passed away this weekend after serving nearly 30 years on the Court.
