Paul Wellstone


United States Senator Paul Wellstone’s plane went down in a northern Minnesota bog in late October 2002. The Senator, who had one of the most liberal voting records in Congress, had written about his own, particular kind of politics in a book published in 2001: The Conscience of a Liberal, Reclaiming the Compassionate Agenda. The last chapter of this volume, “A Winning Progressive Politics” is reprinted here with permission.
