The former presidential candidate reflects on the issues and principles that were at the core of his campaign, including poverty, race relations, campaign finance reform, and gun control.
Bill Bradley ran for president, helped shape a national debate, and altered America's consciousness and views on universal health care, child poverty, race relations, gun control, and campaign finance reform. If anything, his thinking was ahead of the country's. That experience forms the heart and soul of The Journey from Here, a compelling call to action from a man no longer campaigning for office, but still running hard for the ideas and principles that will define the very essence of this nation. From the perspective of a year on the road, listening to Americans in all circumstances and walks of life, Bradley now reflects on the issues we need to confront head on. The Journey from Here is a call to each of us to be our best, from a public servant at his best: informed, thoughtful, candid, unwavering in his quest to "build consensus and advance our collective humanity a few inches."
