Can Democrats Keep the Senate?

Will Republicans Take Back the House?

A CONVERSATION WITH U.S. SENATOR BOB KERREY

Bob Kerrey served as a US Navy SEAL during the Vietnam War. For his service, he received the Congressional Medal of Honor. While in Vietnam, he was wounded, permanently disabled and received from this injury a great gift: sympathy for those who are suffering and an appreciation for the capacity of government to save your life.

Before entering politics, Kerrey was a businessman who helped build a chain of restaurants and health clubs employing more than 1,000 people. He then served one term as Nebraska’s Governor.

Kerrey represented Nebraska in the Senate from 1989 to 2001. His public service since leaving the Senate includes: the 9/11 Commission, advisory board of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Association, co-chair of the Concord Coalition and the Natural Resources Defense Council.

From 2001 to 2011, Kerrey was president of The New School, a university founded on democratic ideals and daring educational practices. On his watch, The New School experienced unprecedented growth in enrollment, faculty, scholarships, capital projects, research and international engagement.

Marília and I will discuss the upcoming General Election with Senator Kerrey. We look forward to hearing his insights on politics in America, the divide in public opinion and what he sees going forward. It is our great honor to interview this American hero and great legislator. Tune into this important pre-election conversation as we discuss where we go as Democrats and where we go as Americans.

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.
