Hard Choices

Hard ChoicesHard Choices by Hillary Rodham Clinton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After reading Madeline Albright’s book about being Secretary of State last year, I became fascinated with how foreign policy is conducted by the United States. Albright is the better writer, but both books are well worth reading. I think I’ll read Condoleezza Rice’s book next to cover all the female Secretaries of State before moving on to the men.

The Centrist Manifesto

The Centrist ManifestoThe Centrist Manifesto by Charles Wheelan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you feel like our current two party system is too partisan and no longer getting reasonable legislation accomplished, then this book is for you. Charles Wheelan lays out a sensible plan for a third party that would hold the middle ground and bring reasoned governance back to the United States. This is not a plan for a fringe party, but a plan for a party for the way most Americans think and his primary focus is the senate, where gerrymandering and primaries have less influence because the entire state votes. This is a short, concise, and sensible book. If you’re tired of the status quo, read it.
