Shadow Politics

Shadow Politics is a grass roots talk show giving a voice to the voiceless. For more than 200 years the people of the Nation's Capital have ironically been excluded from the national political conversation. With no voting member of either house of Congress, Washingtonians have lacked the representation they need to be equal and to have their voices heard. Shadow Politics will provide a platform for them, as well as the millions of others nationwide who feel politically disenfranchised and disconnected, to be included in a national dialog.

We need to start a new conversation in America, one that is more inclusive and diverse and one that will lead our great nation forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century. At Shadow Politics, we hope to get this conversation started by bringing Americans together to talk about issues important to them. We look forward to having you be part of the discussion so call in and join the conversation. America is calling and we're listening… Shadow Politics is about America hearing what you have to say. It's your chance to talk to an elected official who has spent more than 30 years in Washington politics. We believe that if we start a dialog and others add their voices we will create a chorus. Even if those other politicians in Washington don't hear you — Senator Brown will. He's on a mission to listen to what America has to say and use it to start a productive dialog to make our democracy stronger and more inclusive. If we are all part of the solution we can solve any problem.

UNITED STATES SENATOR JOSEPH I. LIEBERMAN

Senator Joseph Lieberman served in the U.S. Senate for 24 years. Lieberman was chairman of the powerful Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee. In 2000, he was the Democratic Party's vice presidential nominee and ran on a ticket with Al Gore in one of the closest elections in America's history. Prior to taking office in Congress, he served as the attorney general in the state of Connecticut and as leader of the Connecticut State Senate. During his tenure, Senator Lieberman helped shape legislation in virtually every major area of public policy including national and homeland security, foreign policy, fiscal policy, environmental protection, human rights, health care, trade, energy, cyber security and taxes.

Sen. Lieberman was a champion of DC statehood and introduced the New Columbia Admission Act in the Senate to provide statehood to the citizens of the District of Columbia. As well as introducing the bill, he advocated for it and is still a strong supporter of our efforts to become the 51st state.  He is the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions. In 2015, he received the Winston Churchill National Leadership Award. In addition to practicing law, Senator Lieberman is honorary national founding chair of No Labels, an American political organization composed of Republicans, Democrats and Independents whose mission is to “usher in a new era of focused problem solving in American politics.”
