AUTHOR AND HISTORIAN

In political speech, Thomas Jefferson is the eternal flame. No other member of the founding generation has served the agendas of both Left and Right with greater vigor.

DEMOCRACY'S MUSE is the rich and engaging story of the third president's tortuous afterlife.   

Jefferson is the president with whom I have the most affinity.
