Gary Hart talked about his book, The Courage of Our Convictions: A Manifesto for Democrats, published by Times Books. The former Colorado senator urged the Democratic Party to reintroduce itself to the American people in terms of its basic principles. He defined those basic principles as promoting a national community based on social justice, continuing coalitions with allies around the world, believing that we all owe something to our society, and fighting for equality and justice for everyone. He questioned why Democrats who voted for the Iraq War didn’t hold President Bush accountable for misleading them on the reasons for going to war. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions. close
