Election 2006: A Look Back and Forward
The national election of 2006 may mark a partial or complete partisan change in the control of Congress. At the same time, incumbents are likely to enjoy a high rate of re-election.

Or is 2006 just a closely fought struggle that may yield a narrow majority for one of the political parties? Join the editors of the new book, The Marketplace of Democracy: Electoral Competition and American Politics along with two leading political analysts to discuss the outcomes and implications of Election 2006.The panel features John Samples (Director of the Center for Representative Government at the Cato Institute); Michael McDonald (Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution); James Pinkerton (Columnist for Newsday); and Lou Jacobson (Deputy Editor at Roll Call).moreless
