Senator George McGovern -- What it Means to be a Democrat -- Gables
May 11 2012 6:30 pm
Senator George McGovern has been a leading figure of the Democratic Party for more than fifty years. From this true liberal comes a thoughtful examination of what being a Democrat really means. McGovern admonishes current Democratic politicians for losing sight of their ideals as they subscribe to an increasingly centrist policy agenda. Applying his wide- ranging knowledge and expertise on issues ranging from military spending to same-sex marriage to educational reform, he stresses the importance of creating policies we can be proud of. Finally, with 2012 looming, McGovern's What It Means to Be a Democrat (Blue Rider, $22.95) offers a vision of the Party's future in which ideological coherence and courage rule.
