Last Friday evening, former Congressman Mickey Edwards and IndependentVoting.org President Jackie Salit were my guests at Politics for the People at the Newman Conference Center at Baruch College. Our topic: The People vs. The Parties. Both Jackie and Mickey have books coming out the summer.
We had a rich and fascinating discussion with our audience. We talked about the negative role of the political parties in US, the cultural component of change, the competing powers of our government and the role of the President, the massive political disalignment of the American people from the political parties and more in this wide ranging conversation.
CSPAN is planning to broadcast Friday’s Politics for the People on Thursday, May 3rd between 8-10 pm. As soon as I know the exact broadcast time, I will get a post up right away. I hope you will set your DVR or plan to tune in and watch.
