Show Notes

In DIVIDED WE FALL, Allan Rivlin, with coauthors Sheri Rivlin and his late mother Alice Rivlin - mixes scholarship and memoirs drawn from Alice's decades of government service in Washington to make the case that bipartisan problem-solving and legislative compromise had been declining for decades starting in the Reagan Administration through the Obama Presidency.  The book chronicles how civil discourse plummeted to new depths after Donald Trump entered the political arena.  Despite these challenges, the Rivlins make the case that bipartisanship is always possible, and often happens when it appears least likely.  Allan also discusses the upcoming 2022 and 2024 elections with RFG's John Shannon.
