Read introduction

Our Divided Political Heart book description on Amazon:
"E. J. Dionne Jr. argues that Americans can’t agree on who we are because we can't agree on who we've been, or what it is, philosophically and spiritually, that makes us American."

I've not read the book myself.

My Divided Political Heart

Slovby alva05 Dec 2014

Is there a fermenting murmur of the distant heartbeat bells?
Not a ring——- I would not describe it as that.
Nor a drumming, like the heartbeat is often personified to perform.
It is distant. It is foreboding?
You speak foreign languages in comic routine,
Like you've performed them before.
Politics with punchlines.
I laugh anyway, because I can, not because I should.
And right now that is so apparent.
