What did the Democrats accomplish at the Democratic National Convention, and can they deliver real change while still playing old-fashioned Beltway politics? In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers sits down with Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation, and the University of Pennsylvania's Adolph Reed Jr. to discuss the promises from the DNC and expectations of Barack Obama. Moyers also speaks with political analysts Merle and Earl Black about how U.S. demographics-particularly the Southern and swing states-will likely influence the 2008 presidential campaign and election. A Labor Day essay on the declining state of labor unions concludes the program. Broadcast date: August 29, 2008. (57 minutes)
