approval ratings for the US Congress hovering dismally near the bottom
(ranging from 9% to 21% approval depending on your news source, we just
checked), it is plain to anyone that something
is broken on our halls of Legislature. Join us as two former members of Congress (Tom Davis
, and Martin Frost
) examine how constant conflict in Washington keeps too many good things from happening, in The Partisan Divide: Congress in Crisis.
During their 40 years in Congress, Martin Frost and Tom Davis were the
field generals for their respective parties, each serving two terms as
chair of the Democratic and Republican House campaign committees. Now
they have joined forces -- in an effort to save Congress from itself.
Tom Davis served
in Congress from 1994 to 2008 representing Virginia's 11th district.
During that time, he served as House GOP campaign chairman for two
cycles (2000 and 2002), and chairman of the House Committee on
Government Reform and Oversight before retiring, undefeated in 2008. He
is a graduate of Amherst College and the University of Virginia Law
School. Mr. Davis currently serves as a Director at Deloitte LLP and
resides in Vienna, Virginia. He is also a co-founder of "No Labels."
Martin Frost served 26 years in Congress representing
the Dallas-Ft. Worth area in North Texas. During that time he served
four years as chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
and four years as Chair of the House Democratic Caucus. He has
undergraduate degrees in journalism and history from the University of
Missouri and a law degree from the Georgetown University Law Center. Mr.
Frost is a senior partner in the Washington office of the Polsinelli
law firm and resides in Alexandria, Virginia.
