• Jon Keller with Jeff Jacoby

Political analysts discuss Massachusetts political culture.

Sunday, Oct. 5, 2008
C. Walsh Theatre
55 Temple Street

"The Bluest State: How Democrats Created the Massachusets Blueprint for American Political Disaster." Massachusetts 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?  Tonight Jon Keller, WBZ-TV News' Political Analyst, joins Jeff Jacoby, Boston Globe columnist, to review the ups and downs of our beloved state's political culture and what can be done to carve out a "new frontier" of American leadership.

Book signing will follow lecture and discussion.
