Katha Pollitt and Glenn Greenwald Take on Ron Paul

From how many angles can one view Ron Paul?


On Bloggingheads, Salon‘s Glenn Greenwald and The Nation‘s Katha Pollitt debate the merits of Ron Paul, his worldview and his policies. Paul discredits progressive issues, argues Pollitt, and many of the legislative efforts that he has opposed have improved the lives of millions of Americans. Meanwhile, Greenwald insists that Paul is better than Obama on many issues such as empire, war and secrecy and has expanded discussion on these topics.
