Populism in Today’s Politics

A Pre-State of the Union Conversation

We need a populist revival in America.  We need to hear from leaders who will fight for American workers and those who don’t have the power of big business.  On Monday, January 24, 2011, Senator Sherrod Brown, Jim Hightower and Democratic consultant Vic Fingerhut joined us to talk about how we will use the populist message and agenda to bring our economy back and win in 2012.
