photoThe Democratic Leadership Council convened in New York earlier this week. The pro-business values of the New Democrats helped Bill Clinton win two terms to the White House. But in the age of corporate corruption, some liberal Democrats are calling for greater reform.

Is it time for the New Democrats to pull back and return to the party's populist roots? Or is the pro-business approach still the surest way to win over voters hearts? In this hour, the Democrats gear up for the November elections...but can they win?

Guests:

Ruy Teixeira, Senior Fellow at The Century Foundation and the author of the forthcoming book "The Emerging Democratic Majority"

Senator Jon Corzine (D-NJ)

Larry Sabato, Election Analyst and Professor of Government and Foreign Affairs at the University of Virginia

This program aired on August 1, 2002.
