Looking at recent U.S. history, presidents, and politics, The New York Times bestselling author and Washington Post columnist provides insight into where we are today, and where we could be headed in this election year. E.J. Dionne, Jr. offers a blueprint for how progressives and moderates can come together to build a lasting political majority. He explores innovative ideas about the economy, identity politics, nationalism, and foreign policy to present a genuinely fresh take on America’s current political crisis. Don’t miss hearing from this celebrated thought-leader at this important time.
E.J. Dionne, Jr. is a columnist for The Washington Post, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and a professor at Georgetown University.
