WHAT: Governor Ed Rendell is a former governor of Pennsylvania, a former head of the Democratic National Committee, current MSNBC senior political analyst and a partner at Ballard Spahr LLP.
WHY: Governor Rendell takes a swipe at today’s leaders from both political parties for a lacking backbone and leadership. In his new book he chides Americans for aiming too low and becoming too complacent. Part autobiography and part prescription, it provides a refreshing and powerful insight on American politics today.
