However, it's quite a shock when a former Bush Administration official comes out in favor of a plan even stronger than the president's.

    From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
    "Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
    David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
    From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
    "In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise.
