 *************

A conservative Senator ousted in the primary by a Tea Party opponent, Bennett has seen first-hand how political moderation is endangered.

Bash has a front-row seat to the collision of politics, policy and media.
 
Ford has lived on both sides, in the political battles and in the increasingly vitriolic news industry.

Sides studies public opinion and political campaigns and is a founder of “The Monkey Cage,” an award-winning blog about political science and politics.
