This week, on an encore broadcast of dialogue, we are joined by journalist and Wilson Center senior scholar, Linda Killian. Her new book, The Swing Vote: The Untapped Power of Independents, examines this rapidly growing segment of the American electorate and presents a new model that reveals who they are and what they want from their government and elected officials. Linda has been a writer and columnist for The Daily Beast, Newsweek, Politico, and US News and World Report. She's also written for the Washington Post and The New Republic among others. Her previous book was, The Freshman: Whatever Happened to the Republican Revolution.
