From Thom Hartmann:

Thom Hartmann asks Rick Perlstein, Historian and Journalist / Author, "Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America", if the U.S. could see the kind of social unrest that we are seeing in other parts of the world?

A very thoughtful discussion with our new contributor, we're so lucky to have here at C&L, Rick Perlstein on voters' disappointment with President Obama after voting for someone who used the language of revolution when running for office and turning to the establishment after being elected and asking "Will America have another revolution?"

Can you help us out?
