In his new book, co-authored with Tom Mann, “It’s Even Worse Than It Looks: How America’s Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism,” Ornstein says that the political polarization, ideological and partisan, is the worst he has seen in more than four decades in Washington. In this presentation, Ornstein will lay out the problem, discuss what caused it, and talk about how we can get out of the ditch.

Figuring out the whys and wherefores of Washington is not easy for those inside the capital, much less those on the outside looking in. Ornstein uses his decades as a Washington insider to talk about how things really work, and why they are not working now.

Ornstein gives an inside view of what is likely to happen as the rest of the pivotal 2012 presidential and congressional elections unfold– and what it means for all of us come 2013.

Want to know what lies ahead in health policy [or energy or foreign policy?] Ornstein will examine what Congress, the president and the Supreme Court might do in the next year, and what it means for all of us.
