Trent Lott and Tom Daschle TOGETHER with Patt Morrison
Attention political junkies: This is not politics as usual.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that the stranger the bedfellows, the more interesting and exciting the night will be. And what a threesome we've got here: Trent Lott, Tom Daschle, and Patt Morrison.
Once two of the most powerful members of Congress, Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (Republican) and Former Majority Leader Tom Daschle (Democrat) team up to take on the polarization that exists in American government, and to prove, by their collaborative effort, that gridlock and stasis can be averted.
In their book Crisis Point, which they've written full of personal stories and reflections, they discuss the entrenched opposition that seems to be worse than it's ever been. It's about more than compromiseit's about openness and communication, and the will to serve a purpose greater and loftier than fulfilling the party's agenda. They discuss money, the perpetual campaigning, the situation of our primary elections, and more. Nothing helps to unify the country like a terrible crisis, but Lott and Daschle argue that our elected officials --Representatives, Senators, the President-- and candidatesmust inspire us to trust them, and must inspire us with their leadership. They give us concrete goals and roadmaps for change and for the future. This is not politics as usual: it is an urgent program for anyone interested in presidential campaigns, the state of our government, and the notion that vigorous debate and communication really does create understandingnot polarization.
Patt Morrison is a journalist, and thank goodness, she still writes a weekly column for the Los Angeles Times. She is a radio host and served as emcee of Writers Bloc's recent program of nonpartisan political satire called Two-Party Animals.
