From debt ceiling standoffs to single-digit Congress approval ratings, America's political system has never been more polarized-or paralyzed-than it is today. As best-selling author and public policy expert Charles Wheelan writes, now is the time for a pragmatic Centrist party that will identify and embrace the best Democratic and Republican ideals, moving us forward on the most urgent issues for our nation. Wheelan-who not only lectures on public policy but practices it as well (he ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2009)-brings even more than his usual wit and clarity of vision to The Centrist Manifesto. He outlines a realistic ground game that could net at least five Centrist senators from New England, the Midwest, and elsewhere. With the power to deny a red or blue Senate majority, committed Centrists could take the first step toward giving voice and power to America's largest, and most rational, voting bloc: the center.
