Bill Bradley, E.L. Doctrow and Bradley Whitford on Fixing Democracy
Thursday, February 14th, 2008
Ring… ring… it’s the next president. Why Tuesday? Honorary Co-Chair Bill Bradley would tell the president-elect to enact “campaign finance reform, reform of the drawing of Congressional district lines and moving election day to Saturday and Sunday” if he was asked how to fix democracy. This is all part of a report issued by the Brennan Center at NYU.
Fixing Democracy asked participants what would happen if the president-elect rang them and posed an important question.
“You know, after this grueling, absurd campaign, I now see that the state of our democracy is something we have to grapple with right away. What should I do?
Burt Neuborne and James Johnson, Brennan Center Legal Director and Chair, respectively, would join Senator Bradley in suggesting that weekend voting is instituted. Larry David would make Election Day a National Holiday. See the responses of E.L. Doctrow, actor Bradley Whitford, and more here.
