The State Of The Center
In the wake of the Tucson shootings and the bipartisan seating at the State of the Union, where is bipartisanship? According to Thomas Frank, nowhere really. The best-selling political writer argues in a new piece in Harper's Magazine that playing to the center is not all it's cracked up to be - that moderation is dormant, if not dead. Where is the center? Are we headed towards the politics of the extreme? Thomas Frank most recent Harpers piece is entitled, ‘The Fatal Center’ and his latest book is, "The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule." Frank is the author of the 'Easy Chair' column in Harper's. Thomas Frank, thanks so much for joining us.
