Book TV on C-Span2 -- Painting the Map Red

I had the chance to be at this event at the Heritage foundation, and even got to meet Hugh Hewitt. The discussion was great, Hugh had some interesting things to say, and Bob Beckel was as entertaining as usuall. I have to say, I don't know that I agree with all of Hugh's perspective on the issue of the 2006 and 2008 election. But, to be fair, I need to finish reading the book to fully understand his words. Check out the show tomorrow.
Description: Hugh Hewitt argues that Democrats could win back both the House and Senate during the 2006 mid-term elections and suggests ways for Republicans to limit this possibility. He says that for Republicans to regain the momentum they have lost recently, they should concentrate on four things: winning the war, confirming their judicial nominees, cutting taxes, and controlling spending. Weekly Standard executive editor Fred Barnes and Democratic strategist Bob Beckel provide commentary. The event was hosted by the Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC.
