IS THE NEW LEFT HISTORY? The Past, Present, and Future of the Left

with Anne Applebaum, Christopher Hitchensvia Uncommon Knowledge
Thursday, July 15, 2004

In 1960, John F. Kennedy ran to the right of Richard Nixon, arguing that under Republicans, the United States had become too weak in the cold war. A dozen years later, the Democratic presidential candidate was George McGovern. How did the Democratics go from hawks to doves in just twelve years? And what does the history of the Left imply for John Kerry, the Democratic Party, and the war on terror today? Peter Robinson speaks with Anne Applebaum and Christopher Hitchens.

THE RIGHT NATION: The Conservative Ascendancy

with Clark S. Judge, John Micklethwaitvia Uncommon Knowledge
Tuesday, June 8, 2004

A half-century ago, the ideology of the American political establishment was liberal—the New Deal was still new and big government was getting bigger.

But what does conservativism mean today? And if it is ascendant, how long can it remain so? Peter Robinson speaks with Clark S. Judge and John Micklethwait.

with Morris P. Fiorina, David Brooks, Daron Shawvia Uncommon Knowledge
Monday, May 3, 2004

During the past decade, neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have been able to capture a majority of the vote in national elections. In fact, the country hasn't been so evenly divided since the 1870s. Some say this is evidence of a culture war and a political divide that has split the country into two Americas. Others disagree, arguing that in fact most Americans are in the moderate middle and are divided on relatively few issues. Who's right?

The Blacks and the GOP

by Robert Zelnickvia Hoover Daily Report
Thursday, April 8, 2004

Each time I see the African American community preparing to vote overwhelmingly for the Democratic presidential candidate, I recall the warm Washington spring forty years ago when a craggy-faced septuagenarian named Everett McKinley Dirksen convinced his Republican senate colleagues to back cloture on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which broke the southern Democratic filibuster and ensured passage of legislation triggering the "Second Reconstruction."
