Red and Blue Nation? Political Polarization in America
William Galston of the University of Maryland, Hahrie Han of Wellesley College, Professor Marc Landy, and Professor Alan Wolfe discuss the nature and significance of what analysts describe as a widening gulf within the American body politic. The four agree that polarization is a reality, but that it is neither unprecedented nor cataclysmic. Each panelist examines a different facet of the issue. The program is introduced by Erik Owens, assistant director of the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life, which sponsored the event.
