E. J. Dionne

E. J. Dionne, long-time columnist for the Washington Post and regular commentator on NPR, MSNBC, and Meet the Press, discusses his new book, Our Divided Political Heart. Dionne’s book is an argument about politics, but also an argument about American history, stating “We can’t agree about who we are because we can’t agree about who we’ve been.” Dionne explains that historically the Tea Party and various forms of radical individualism misread our story in a variety of ways.
