Tavis Talks: David Dinkins on Tom Bradley. In a wide ranging interview, Tavis and the former Mayor of New York City discuss the legacy of Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, who was inaugurated 40 years ago this week. Bradley served five terms in office, a record which will never be broken. Tavis and Mayor Dinkins discuss the so called "Bradley Effect," a political phenomenon coined in the 1980's when Bradley twice ran for governor of California. Both times, he was ahead in the polls. Both times he lost. In the "Bradley Effect," voters told pollsters they planned to vote for the African American Bradley, but actually voted for his white opponent. Dinkins also handicaps this year's New York mayoral election.
