Drew Westen, the guy who wrote the “emotional politics” book referenced last week in the post “Are Democrats Passionless, Spineless or Just Clueless?” will be on MPR’s Midmorning program with Kari Miller Monday at 10 a.m. central. Should be interesting, especially with candidates’ spouses now mixing it up.
Westen’s point, to review the bidding, is that voters make decisions on emotion, not facts. Duh. And that Republicans make people feel good (or scared) (or good about being scared) while Dems bury people in positions. Exaggerated, yes, but lots of people are talking about this book, so if you wanna look smart, tune in.
