Will Progressives Dominate the Coming Era in Politics?

March 18, 1996

Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne predicts that progressives are on the verge of a renaissance. Dionne discusses howe the advancement of mass conservative movements over the past several years has been more a result of a failure on the part of the Clinton administration and Congress to fulfill campaign promises than of public support for a more Right Wing agenda. He observes that the current political climate closely resembles that of the period which ushered in the last progressive era, the Gilded Age, and that the pendulum will swing back in that direction.
