Book Excerpt : The top domestic policy advisor to Senator Edward Kennedy offers an insider's view of two remarkable years when Kennedy fought to preserve the Democratic mission against Newt Gingrich's contract with America and a Republican majority in both houses. In November 1994 the election swept a new breed of Republicans into control of the United States Congress. Led by Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, the Republicans were determined to enact a conservative agenda that would reshape American government. Had it not been for Ted Kennedy, they would have succeeded. In 1994, after defending his Senate seat against challenger Mitt Romney, Senator Kennedy came back to Washington to find Democrats, including President Clinton, demoralized and leaning toward “compromises” that would adopt much of the Republican agenda. Undaunted, Kennedy pressed the agenda he would have had his party held power. He rallied the Democrats. He reached across the aisle to craft and pass key progressive legislation. And he stopped the Gingrich revolution in its tracks. The story of Senator Kennedy's successful struggle against the radical conservative agenda has special resonance today, as a resurgent Republican right controls both houses of Congress. Nick Littlefield and David Nexon tell the story of the bare-knuckled and frequently hilarious fight in the United States Senate.
