Overview

"This Is Not Your Father's Democratic Party" is a lively analysis of the Democratic Party told by a multigenerational liberal, with close ties to Massachusetts politics, who abruptly realizes during the special election of Republican Senator Scott Brown, that he finds himself outside the political tent of the contemporary Democratic Party. Political Junkies of all stripes will find it provocative and interesting.

The book begins with the election of "Classic Liberal" Woodrow Wilson in 1912 and chronologically traverses the historical circumstances of 20th century as well as the Democratic Party's evolution over the decades. The book discusses the emergence of Lyndon Johnson's "Social Progress" platforms, Bill Clinton's "New Democrats", and culminates a century later with the "Socialist" policies of Barack Obama.

Neither a critical missive nor a detailed dissertation by an apostate liberal turned conservative, the book is brilliantly written with an always engaging, humorous and passionate delivery perfect for a book on this subject matter.
