Obama, the Tea Party, and the Future of American Politics with Theda Skocpol

11/4/2012; 58 minutes

Theda Skocpol surveys the current political landscape and explores its most consequential questions: What happened to Obama's "new New Deal"? Why have his achievements enraged opponents more than they have satisfied supporters? How has the Tea Party's ascendance reshaped American politics? At this moment of economic uncertainty and extreme polarization, as voters prepare to render another verdict on Obama's historic presidency, Skocpol reviews its triumphs and setbacks to see where we might be headed.
