Don Wolfensberger – Director of the Congress Project at the Woodrow Wilson Center.

 

Bi-partisanship is proving hard to come by as the nation grapples with the urgency of its economic crisis. This should come as no surprise, cross-party alliances in national politics are both rare and fleeting.

Don Wolfensberger, uses 28 years of Congressional experience to explain the origin and magnitude of today's legislative challenges.
