What’s Cooking in the Laboratories of Democracy

It was Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis who popularized the phrase “states are laboratories of democracy.”  That has never been clearer than at this moment when some of the most important innovation in governing is coming from states…and some folks, notably on the right, are working on experiments that may end up crippling democracy or even killing it.  To get a sense of what is going on at the state level in US politics, we take a look at one bellwether state, Virginia, through the eyes of one of its most promising political leaders, current gubernatorial candidate State Senator Jennifer McClellan.  Dr. Kavita Patel of the Brookings Institution and formerly of the Obama White House and host David Rothkopf discuss with Senator McClellan some of the key issues in US politics today from voting rights to justice reform to child care and education.  Don’t miss it.
