Democrats have occupied the White House for 15 of the past 23 years, and Thomas Frank pointedly asks: What do they have to show for it? Wall Street gets bailouts. Free-trade deals keep coming. The decline of the middle class has only accelerated. Why has so little been done to advance traditional liberal goals – to expand opportunity, fight for social justice, and ensure that workers get a fair deal?

The best-selling, Kansas City-born author takes up the issue, employing his trademark sardonic wit and lacerating logic in a discussion of his new book Listen, Liberal: Or What Ever Happened to the Party of the People?
