What do Tuesday's election results say about America's future?
Only one year after a historic election rerouted the course of America's political culture, do the 2009 election results show momentum swinging in the opposite direction?
This week, NOW's David Brancaccio talks to political author and columnist David Sirota about populist anger, the Obama administration's successes and failures, and how this week's election results foreshadow the state of politics in 2010.

I like Dave. I get a subscription to the magazine In These Times which features his work. And I've read The Uprising. Sirota makes the point that third parties, shareholder meetings and city council meetings are the touchpoints for action. Third parties may not win. But in places like New York the Working Families Party reported in the book gains policy influence when they get candidates elected. Third parties are on the fulcrum seeking policy change from whatever quarter it is available. That's strategy, not hope and change rhetoric.
