Bradley: 'Do Better' To Reverse Country's Course

Former New Jersey Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bill Bradley sees an America in the midst of a "slow-motion crisis." The problems, he argues, are driven by the expansive role of money in politics, ineffective approaches to job creation and underwhelming efforts to stimulate the economy.

They are all, however, problems with workable solutions. Bradley sees unlimited potential to improve the country, and argues that political change can come about remarkably fast, but only if people get involved.

In a new book, Bradley lays out his plans to address the challenges of the economy, political gridlock and foreign policy, among other issues. NPR's Neal Conan talks with Bradley about his book, We Can All Do Better.
