September 22, 2009 – Hour 1

Is the conservative moment in America dead?  According to our guest for the first hour of today’s show, it is.  Sam Tanenhaus is the editor of the New York Times Book Review and the Week in Review section of the Times, and his most recent book is called The Death of Conservatism.  He joined us today to discuss the past, present, and future of partisan politics in America, and why he believes that currently, the right wing in this country isn’t really conservative at all.
