WT? co-chair Bill Bradley: We’ve “struck a nerve”

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

Why Tuesday? road team Jacob Soboroff and Barnett Zitron were back at it March 31, visting with WT? co-chair Bill Bradley. The former Senator and presidential candidate was in Mendham, N.J. signing copies of his new book, The New American Story. At the event, the Senator was shooting a video blog for his site. Look for the appearance (and an interview with Jacob) to show up there (or on his Gather page) soon. Jacob asked Senator Bradley what he thought was stopping Congress from changing the way and day we vote — check out his answer:

The question “why do we vote on Tuesday?” spurs many more fundamental questions: Why is the vanishing voter epidemic sweeping America? Why does the United States lag behind nearly every democracy on Earth in voter turnout? Senator Bradley’s book tour is just getting started. Check his schedule to hear him speak about these and other issues. He’ll be stopping by The Daily Show, Tavis Smiley and Real Time with Bill Maher too, so tune in to hear our co-chair getting out the Why? on national TV.
