Uncommon knowledge with Michael Barone

Last week we posted Peter Robinson’s interview with Michael Barone. Given our format, the interview rotated off the site after a few days. We’ll have another installment of Uncommon Knowledge next week. In the meantime, here is the interview with Michael Barone, once more once, after a brief introduction.
Michael Barone is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, the senior political analyst for the Washington Examiner and co-author of the biennial Almanac of American Politics, now nearing its fortieth anniversary and available online. Mr. Barone is the author of several other books, among them the political history Our Country: The Shaping of America from Roosevelt to Reagan (referred to in the interview below) as well as Our First Revolution and Hard America, Soft America.
Mr. Barone sat down with Peter Robinson last month for a discussion of American politics. it is an enormously interesting and wide ranging discussion, presented in its entirety below thanks to our friends at the Hoover Institution. The interview begins with a discussion of the changes in our politics that have taken place during the four decades covered in the Almanac, beginning with the shift in population. During the past 40 years, as Peter Robinson writes, Americans have been moving South and West. Why is that? Listen up!
