Publisher's Summary

A vision - and detailed road map to power - for a new party that will champion America’s rational center.

From debt ceiling standoffs to single-digit Congress approval ratings, America’s political system has never been more polarized - or paralyzed - than it is today. As best-selling author and public policy expert Charles Wheelan writes, now is the time for a pragmatic Centrist party that will identify and embrace the best Democratic and Republican ideals, moving us forward on the most urgent issues for our nation.

Wheelan - who not only lectures on public policy but practices it as well (he ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2009) - brings even more than his usual wit and clarity of vision to The Centrist Manifesto. He outlines a realistic ground game that could net at least five Centrist senators from New England, the Midwest, and elsewhere. With the power to deny a red or blue Senate majority, committed Centrists could take the first step toward giving voice and power to America’s largest, and most rational, voting bloc: the center.

    "One great solution"

    Everyone should sign up and we will end the current madness. To all those who don't vote because they think it doesn't matter, a few extra votes is all it will take. Get off your duff.

    "Count me in!"

    An extremely important message, well delivered, that I've shared with three other Kansas and Missouri voters. Charles Wheelan has captured credible answers to gun rights and contraception, and harnessed the extreme sides of political discourse in The Centrist Manifesto. ~ Adrienne from Kansas

    "Must read for all rational americans"
    Any additional comments?

    This book perfectly embodies what I have long thought about politics. I often joke that I am a member of the "logic" party, but now this author has created an actual party that supports the non-extremist views of the majority of Americans. If you consider yourself moderate, and have trouble identifying with either the republican or democrat extremists I highly recommend that you read this book as you just may find that you are in fact a centrist.
