Episode Summary

DeLay's Woes and Following de Tocqueville
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay of Texas has been fighting off a torrent of bad news: aides indicted, family members drawing huge salaries from his political action committee, international trips funded by lobbyists, and an investigation in his home state. Even the Wall Street Journal editorial page has been highly critical. Can "The Hammer" beat back the calls for him to resign? For a discussion of this, as well as reflections on the death of feminist Andrea Dworkin, Tucker is joined by Richard Cohen of The Washington Post and Jonah Goldberg of National Review.

Bernard-Henri Levy is a French intellectual and philosopher and something of a celebrity in Europe. Levy was sent by The Atlantic to traverse the length and breadth of America in the mold of Alexis de Tocqueville, a fellow Frenchmen whose 1835 work Democracy in America is still assigned in university political science courses. Levy found a country of paradoxes and contradictions, whose people were warm, generous and ceaselessly interesting. Tucker talks with Levy about his travels, his piece in The Atlantic, and his forthcoming book chronicling his experiences.moreless
