“American politics is dominated by an enduring myth—that Democrats are the party of the common man; the voiceless, the powerless, the poor. That if you care about what happens to the least among us, you will cast your vote in the Democratic column. But the reality is this: the vast majority of voiceless, powerless and poor people are concentrated in Detroit, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Chicago, Atlanta, and America’s other large urban centers. All of them are run by Democrats and have been for 50 to 100 years. On the Democrats’ watch, these cities have become the equivalent of holding cells for the poor and minorities. Everything that’s wrong with America’s cities that can be affected by policy, Democrats are responsible for. There are poor to be helped, but Democrats have buried them deeper in poverty and powerlessness. There are minorities who seek opportunities, but Democrats have kept them second class citizens. Democrats have been the problem rather than the solution.”

Theodore Roosevelt Poll:

It appears that by the end of the President's Poll that Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt were tied. Then somehow after we had voted on the Thomas Jefferson book, Teddy pulled ahead!!

So now we have to make it up to all of the Theodore Roosevelt voters and a book by or about Theodore Roosevelt will be our next Presidential Series selection.

This selection will begin on June 1, 2010 and will continue for three months (June, July and August). This discussion will be led by Bryan. Bryan has an extraordinary background and will be a great moderator to lead this discussion. He and Joe now share the responsibilities for the Presidential Series reads and will be alternating book discussions. They are both Assisting Moderators for the Presidential Series.

We have added all of the books nominated on the Theodore Roosevelt thread. However, if you do not see your favorite book on this list; then just comment or pop me a note and I will immediately add it to this poll.

You can always change your vote at any time; so nothing is lost. Some of the TR books deal with only a certain period of his life, one is multi-volume (the Morris books - I have added both separately), some deal with other founding fathers too; some are all encompassing, others deal with specific events in TR's life or presidency and others are by the man, himself.

Before making your selection, please try to look up your choice and make sure it really is a book you are interested in; do not be lured in by the title. Also, check out the author and what others have said about the book before you (reviewers who you trust). Then of course, make your selection.
