For most television personalities, the release of a book is akin to tossing a giant, bleeding hunk of red meat to their most fervent admirers. Substantive content be damned, Daddy needs a new yacht! But Rachel Maddow’s Drift addresses questions that people of every political persuasion should be asking as we approach our twelfth year embroiled in wars both acknowledged and covert. How did American society become so disengaged with its military? When did the executive branch effectively swallow Congress’ warmaking powers and how do we shift the balance back? We spoke with Maddow about the real legacy of Ronald Reagan, cornering Dick Cheney, and pitching Drift to the FOX News faithful.
