Publisher's Summary

In this era of extremism, our largest problems remain unsolved and our international leadership is compromised. Having two fiercely opposed political parties is what John Adams, the second president of the United States, dreaded "as the greatest political evil under our Constitution". If American government is to work, it must do so in the center - where open discussion, hard negotiation, and effective compromise take place. No living politician knows this better than former Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, who served for 40 years in state and national government, including 24 in the United States Senate and a campaign for the vice presidency.

In this vivid account of his political life, Senator Lieberman shows how legislative progress and all-inclusive government occurs when politicians reject extremism and embrace productive compromise. In The Centrist Solution, he shines a light on 10 milestones of centrist success during his time in government - from the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 to the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and the repeal of the military's anti-gay "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, along with a vice presidential run with presidential candidate Al Gore, and being vetted by John McCain to be his potential running mate on the 2008 Republican Ticket.
