THE EMERGING DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY (Scribner). In this new book authors Ruy Teixeira and John Judis look at the trends which they say point to a political re-alignment in the United States with the Democratic Party emerging as the dominant force in politics. Our guest, Teixeira, is a senior fellow at the Century Foundation. He says that women, white-collar professionals, African Americans, Latinos and union members will make up the grassroots of this coalition. He posits that the GOP's reliance on Big Business (tainted by the recent corporate scandals) and the Religious Right is turning voters off to its message.
