Franklin Delano Roosevelt forged the "New Deal" by building a broad coalition of dispossessed workers and farmers. President Barack Obama is building a new Democratic majority by forging a pragmatic progressivism. This new approach opens doors of opportunity to a changing America by reworking the old left-right paradigm of markets versus government, military vigilance versus diplomatic partnering, and impartiality versus affirmative action. Longtime Obama adviser Bill Burton discusses America's new directions under President Obama.
