"They are wrong and we are right and I'm going to prove it to you!" -- Harry S. Truman, Democratic National Convention, 1948
A rousing political manifesto from The New York Times bestselling co-author of All's Fair
One of Washington's most prominent Democratic strategists and co-author of the New York Times bestseller All's Fair offers a timely, accessible and entertaining response to the GOP's Contract with America -- just in time for primary season.
With the Republican Congress blasting away at the federal government, James Carville, a top advisor to President Clinton, counterattacks. In We're Right, They're Wrong, he uses his trademark mix of pointed argument, homespun wit, and historic lore to deflate GOP claims that nothing is amiss in America that budget-cutting wouldn't cure. Carville staunchly defends a strong government -- one capable of teaching, feeding, healing, defending and sheltering its citizens -- and provides Democrats and progressives with a politically astute program for building upon what's best about our nation.
Filled with anecdotes and political myths, We're Right, They're Wrong is a succinct, witty, fact-filled trot for judging the long primary season.
