Take It Back charts the way back to a better future for democracy and America. Carville and Begala give practical, can-do advice on how the Democratic Party can actually win elections and get our country back on track. They present their case with wisdom, moderation and humor. The result is a book well worth the listen.
Paul Begala and James "Ragin' Cajun" Carville are both Democratic political commentators, who have served as co-host on shows such as CNN's "The Situation Room", CNN's Crossfire, and MSNBC's "Equal Time". In addition, they were both political strategests for the Clinton Whitehouse. In this book, they have come up with some provacative details on how to wrestle control of the Federal Government back from the Neocons, and help make government again serve the people, and not corporations and the special interests. The accomplish this with many common-sense ideas that anyone can grasp. And they entertain the reader while doing it. It's definitely the best book I've read this year, and will be watching out for both authors in the future.
This is a great book not because it points out what's wrong with politics as usual, there are many of those, but because Carville and Begala actually take the time to make suggestions on how to FIX what's wrong. It obviously has a leftist slant, but they do not spare the rod for anyone, including current Democratic leaders. Worth the time, especially the part on taxes. Find out what you thought you knew...
