Code Red: Uniting Moderates and Progressives with E. J. Dionne

When we think of smart, insightful political commentary, one of the first names that comes to mind is E.J. Dionne. He’s a regular on NPR, MSNBC, and PBS, an opinion journalist for The Washington Post, a former staffer for the New York Times, and a lecturer at Georgetown and Harvard. His new book Code Red: How Progressives and Moderates Can Unite To Save Our Country is on bookstore shelves now.
