Jeffrey Bloodworth talked about his book, Losing the Center: The Decline of American Liberalism, 1968--1992 , in which he argues that liberalism began to decline in the early 1960s. He explores this decline through the biographies of some of the Democratic Party’s most important leaders, including Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Henry “Scoop” Jackson, Bella Abzug, Harold Ford Sr., and Jimmy Carter.
