Reich's Reason

Download Audio
photoRobert Reich has long been a champion of American liberalism. As Bill Clinton's secretary of labor, he railed against the gap between America's rich and poor, and helped pass the Family and Medical Leave Act. During his unsuccessful campaign for governor of Massachusetts in 2002, Reich was the only candidate in the race to support gay marriage.

Now he's banging the liberal drum again, this time in a new book called "Reason: Why Liberals Will Win the Battle for America." In it, Reich gives liberals a new battleplan, with redefined versions of patriotism, morality, and prosperity as their main weapons.
