No Labels: Searching For A Moderate Alternative
Monday, December 13, 2010
A high-profile conference today in New York is drawing lots of big names and hoping to start a conversation about the role of moderates and Independents in the US political system. The No Labels organization’s stated mission is to get over party labels, push past ideological gridlock and "solve problems." WNYC’s Azi Paybarah reports from the conference, plus Congressmen Bruce Braley (D-IA), Bob Inglis (R-SC) and Joe Sestak (D-PA), as well as John Avlon, one of the founders of No Labels and the author of Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe is Hijacking America.
