Political commentators and intellectuals examined trends in the American political process. 

Mr. Barone expounded the thesis that, after decades of decline, the two major political

parties are growing in strength. Mr. Broder noted that the same soft money that has

enabled the consolidation of the parties has also weakened the image of the parties in the

eyes of many Americans. Dr. Fiorina explored the divergence between the way citizens

think about government and the way textbooks suggest they should think about government. 

Mr. Mason made observations based on his experience in government. The forum participants

responded to audience questions. close
