A vision - and detailed road map to power - for a new party that will champion America’s rational center.
From debt ceiling standoffs to single-digit Congress approval ratings, America’s political system has never been more polarized - or paralyzed - than it is today. As best-selling author and public policy expert Charles Wheelan writes, now is the time for a pragmatic Centrist party that will identify and embrace the best Democratic and Republican ideals, moving us forward on the most urgent issues for our nation.
Wheelan - who not only lectures on public policy but practices it as well (he ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2009) - brings even more than his usual wit and clarity of vision to The Centrist Manifesto. He outlines a realistic ground game that could net at least five Centrist senators from New England, the Midwest, and elsewhere. With the power to deny a red or blue Senate majority, committed Centrists could take the first step toward giving voice and power to America’s largest, and most rational, voting bloc: the center.

Must read for all rational americans
This book perfectly embodies what I have long thought about politics. I often joke that I am a member of the "logic" party, but now this author has created an actual party that supports the non-extremist views of the majority of Americans. If you consider yourself moderate, and have trouble identifying with either the republican or democrat extremists I highly recommend that you read this book as you just may find that you are in fact a centrist.
