The infamous “they” say it is better to give than to receive. Today, my birthday, I’d like to give away a signed copy of The Party Decides.
The book is about how U.S. political parties choose their presidential nominees. It argues that party leaders winnow the choices that are presented to voters. In particular, they weed out anyone who is too extreme or factional to win, as well as anyone who is not loyal enough to the party to be worth electing.
To enter to win the book, answer one of the questions below in the Comments section by Wednesday, June 8th at noon. The winner will be announced later that day.
1. What do you think of the book’s argument?
2. Who do you think is going to win the 2012 Republican nomination, and if you like, why?
