This Week on Bill Moyers Journal October 31

from the BILL MOYERS JOURNAL Newsletter: for Friday October 31, 2008


Both candidates are still pledging “change” if elected, but can the next president break the stranglehold of money on politics? Bill Moyers sits down with Joan Claybrook, president of Public Citizen, and Bob Edgar, president and CEO of Common Cause, to discuss how Beltway business as usual may stand in the way of real change in Washington.

In the final days before the election, Bill Moyers sits down with Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center, and Brown University professor Glenn C. Loury, an economist and expert on race and social division, to talk about the historic implications of electing the first black president or the first female vice president. Jamieson and Loury weigh the messages of recent days and what they tell us about America at the crossroads.
