Thomas Mann on Our Dysfunctional Politics and the Road to 2016

November 21, 2014, Thomas E. Mann and Fred Dews

“The Republican Party has become like a parliamentary party, vehemently oppositional and opposed to anything that the other party would do,” says Thomas Mann in this podcast in which he shares his expertise and insight on political dysfunction in America, the roots of today’s divisive partisanship, ideas for solutions, and the 2016 presidential contest. Mann, a senior fellow in Governance Studies and the W. Averell Harriman Chair in American Governance, also reflects on his 45 years studying and engaging with the political scene in Washington, sharing what he has seen, heard and done along the way.
