Feingold : a new Democratic Party by Sanford D Horwitt( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russ Feingold is a rarity in American politics, having often defied conventional political wisdom and long odds. A staunch civil libertarian, he was the only member of the Senate who voted against the ill-conceived USA Patriot Act. In 2002, while the overwhelming majority of the Senate voted for the Iraq war resolution, Feingold opposed it. Washington insiders thought such votes could doom Feingold's 2004 reelection, but he won by a near landslide. Author Horwitt writes that Feingold "represents the progressive side of the Democratic divide more clearly and authentically than any successful politician on the national stage." Feingold's authenticity is deeply rooted in the old progressive tradition personified by one of his heroes, legendary senator Robert M. La Follette, placing a high value on honest, efficient government, investment in public education, health and infrastructure, and curbs on corporate power and other wealthy interests in the political process.--From publisher description
Conversations with Abner Mikva : final reflections on Chicago politics, democracy's future, and a life of public service by Sanford D Horwitt( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Abner Mikva was an Illinois lawmaker, US judge, and mentor to both Barack Obama and Elena Kagan. He is fondly remembered in Chicago politics for being told, after saying that nobody sent him, "We don't want nobody nobody sent." One of the country's leading liberal politicians for decades, Mikva served in all three branches of the federal government: nine years in the US House of Representatives (following ten years in the Illinois House), fifteen years as a judge on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, and a year as the White House Counsel in the Clinton administration. After leaving politics, he taught law at the University of Chicago Law School and Northwestern University. President Obama awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2014. During the final years of his life, his former speechwriter and longtime friend, Sanford Horwitt--author of biographies of Saul Alinsky and Russ Feingold--spoke with him about his battles with Daley political machine in Chicago, the mistake he made when the Nazis marched in Skokie, his struggles against the N.R.A. over gun control, the efforts he made as judge on behalf of civil rights, the challenges he faced under the Clinton administration, his assessment of Obama's presidency, his thoughts on aging and death, and his unwavering commitment to a more democratic future. Conversations with Abner Mikva gives readers an unfiltered, intimate audience with one of the most influential figures in Democratic politics in the final decades of the twentieth century."--Provided by publisher
