The most depressing part of this book is not that we have lost Senator Wellstone. Though bad enough, what is worse is how fresh his list of challenges is and how accurate his fears have become.

We've got a lot of work to make America "a more perfect union" and it seems we've only lost ground since this book was written.
Published shortly before Wellstone's death, a compelling rationale for fighting for progressive issues. These issues continue to be important even as politics seems to be more divisive than ever. I wonder when we'll find another willing to fight so hard for real people.
