Alan does a great job of making comparison of the right vs. the left. He is "fair and balanced" in his assessments of the two. He does not hide the fact that he is a proud liberal, while still respecting the other side's opinions and views. He quotes several emails from viewers during his time co-hosting the Hannity and Colmes TV Show, that is now just Hannity. Most of the emails have some pretty mean spirited remarks about Alan, but he didn't respond to venom with venom. He has mastered the art of respectfully disagreeing. I especially like the facts he pointed out about the U.S. government lying about the reasons we go to war. And even worse, how we treat the men and women who served once they are lucky enough to return home after and during the conflict. I know that true wisdom has to come from an unbiased tongue, but this is a good representation of a common sense approach to many issues that will forever continue to be under debate. I highly recommend whether liberal or conservative.

This is a wonderful book that everyone should read unfortunately for the author Alan Colmes everyone is much to set in what they believe either left or right to be swayed by a persuasive argument. In striving to be moderate Colems will more then likely manage to enrage everyone conservatives of course will despise him for being liberal and those to the left of Colmes will despise him for being much too soft on the Bush administration. There is a great line in the book and there is no way in world I am going to do it justice conservatives want to keep this country the way it is and liberals want to this country to achieve its full potential. I have never agreed more with a statement written in one of these political books.
One point I do think that Colmes gets wrong is his instance that the left does not vilify the right in the same mean spirited way that the right vilifies the left sure we do! The right just does a better job at it.
Overall-I think the message is a good one however much we may disagree with one another we are still citizens of this country.
