The legendary, provocative and always timely James Carville presents his captivating views on American and international politics, spiced with his own unique brand of optimism and humor. This political mastermind and a fixture in US politics shares his thoughts on current events, the divided Congress, the second administration of Barack Obama and the challenges facing the major political parties and players. Carville discusses how, beginning in 2006, American political power started shifting between the two parties at a glacial pace with neither party holding onto the reigns of leadership for long. The highly partisan atmosphere in Washington and constant power shifts over the last few years have proven that the old rules of politics and power are gone—maybe forever. Why is this happening? Are politicians intentionally dividing the electorate for political gain? Why have things become so partisan? He dissects the extreme political forces shaping the country and shows what trends from the last two decades mean for our political future. Using data derived from the intersection of policy, politics and public opinion, Carville believes the real strength in America is the power of youth and that those wishing to maintain political power ignore this bloc at their own peril.

Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. They combine their unique experiences to provide audiences with a stimulating, candid and provocative conversation from both sides of the political aisle.
