(Studio: Aaron Brown) Live discussion held with Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell, Representative Rahm Emanuel & former Oregon Secretary of State Phil Kiesling† about the fate & future of the Democratic Party. [From Harrisburg, RENDELL - suggests the party has to go back to believing in our values; says Senator Hillary Clinton could become the party messenger & perhaps Senator John Edwards.] [From Chicago, EMANUEL - recalls the sincerity of Presidents Bill Clinton & Jimmy Carter, who were capable of building coalitions; admits the party problems are deep & fundamental.] [From Portland, KIESLING - says Senator John Kerry blew it on Social Security reform; states Democrats need to forge a new deal between the generations with Social Security & Medicare, which are virtual Ponzi schemes.]
- Brown, Aaron
