Westen has made a name for himself, 16 Feb. 2010
To his credit Drew Westen has written a top notch book on the art of politics. The book has catapulted him into the realm of TV pundit, and just weeks after I finished "The Political Brain" I suddenly get to see Drew Westen spew his opinions on CNN and MSNBC.
"The Political Brain" is a manifesto for Democrats across the United States. It is a call to arms. His straightforward, common sense approach to attacking republicans on areas where they are weak, abortion issues, gun rights, and every other "social" issue that they have usurped, is the core of this book.
All Democratic candidates everywhere must read this book, and begin to change the terms of the debate and start putting Republicans on the defensive and ask them tough questions about their dogmatic views.
