Description

Massachusetts. It is the proud birthplace of modern-day liberalism, and the nation’s foremost test kitchen for its agenda and political practices. It is also, some say, home to sluggish economic growth, insular political culture, and a government that often fails to deliver relief for the working-class people it claims to help the most. Are Massachusetts politics an ideal others should strive toward? Or have we led the rest of the country (or at least its Democrats) dangerously off course? Jon Keller, WBZ-TV News’ Political Analyst, and Jeff Jacoby, Boston Globe columnist, review the ups and downs of Massachusetts political culture and what can be done to carve out a “new frontier” of American leadership.
