Editorial Reviews


"An important contribution to an ongoing debate." ―Kirkus Reviews

"Have you lost hope that we can ever lick the hyper-partisanship that has made our politics unbearable and our nation less governable? Pull yourself back from the brink and read this practical, uplifting book by two distinguished former Senate Majority Leaders, one a conservative Republican and the other a liberal Democrat. They don’t agree on all the issues and solutions, and the rest of us won’t either, but they show how rational people of good will can come together to change today’s toxic environment. Trent Lott and Tom Daschle urge public officials and citizens alike to do better. In our own interests, we had better start meeting their challenge." ―Larry J. Sabato, UVA Center for Politics director and author of THE KENNEDY HALF-CENTURY

"Trent Lott and Tom Daschle were remarkable Congressional leaders who revered the Constitution and got things done during difficult times. This timely book extends their public service by illustrating how political parties can achieve the greater good―how Congress can again work successfully and regain public confidence and support." ―Former Senator Richard Lugar

"There was a time when the U.S. Senate dealt with big issues in a serious way. Trent Lott and Tom Daschle have written a lively description of life and leadership in the U.S. Senate when ‘compromise’ wasn’t a four-letter word and when America’s business got done!" ―Former Senator Byron Dorgan

"In negotiating the Bipartisan Balanced Budget Agreement, these two remarkable leaders put aside their partisanship and simply did what they thought was right for the country. Washington needs a lot more leadership like this today. In this book these two former Senate Majority Leaders tell how this can be repeated and why it must." ―Erskine Bowles. White House Chief of Staff under President Clinton
