DASCHLE AND LOTT Host Carol Castiel and VOA Congressional Correspondent Cindy Saine talk with former Senate Majority Leaders--Democrat Tom Daschle, and Republican Trent Lott about their recently coauthored book, “Crisis Point- Why We Must—and How We Can—Overcome Our Broken Politics in Washington and Across America.” They lament the lack of compromise and comity which, along with perpetual campaigning, the 24/7 news cycle and money in politics, fuel hyper-partisanship in US politics. Drawing on their vast experience from opposite sides of the aisle, they outline a series of recommendations that could bridge the current divide.
