Three years after the 2008 presidential election-says Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel-it’s clear that it will take more than one election (and one person) to reshape American politics and repair the damage wreaked by a decade of conservative rule. Challenging the limits of our downsized political debate, vanden Heuvel, author of The Change I Believe In, argues that the timid incrementalism and forces of money and establishment power that debilitate American politics will be overcome only by independent organizing, strategic creativity, bold ideas, and determined idealism.
