Linda Killian is a journalist and senior scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. She has been a columnist for Politico, U.S. News & World, and Politics Daily. She has also written for The Washington PostThe New Republic, and The Weekly Standard, among other national publications.

“Linda Killian does a great job of not only examining the importance and historic role of those Independent and moderate swing voters who live between the partisan and ideological forty-yard lines, but she examines their mind-sets as well. What makes swing voters tick, what swings them and why?  An understanding of swing voters leads to an understanding of the volatility and the turbulence that drove the 2006, 2008, and 2010 elections and will likely drive 2012 as well.”

—Charlie Cook, editor and publisher of The Cook Political Report and political analyst for NBC News

We’re Heading to Brooklyn…Reserve Your Seat!


On Thursday, January 26th, 2012 Politics for the People is coming to Brooklyn. Cathy Stewart, the founder of the NYC Independence Party’s Politics for the People free educational series, will be leading a discussion entitled The Untapped Power of Independents.

Independents are “the talk of the town” when it comes to local, state and presidential politics. But is our potential being truly developed? Can independents reform America, or will be stay “swing voters” in the Democratic and Republican Party game? Nobody is better than Cathy Stewart at organizing environments to explore these and other questions.

Politics for the People is free, but seating on the 26th is limited to just 80 people, and will be given on a first come, first serve basis, so please reserve your seat early by clicking here.
The details are below.  Happy New Year, and see you at Politics for the People!
