Democrats won a majority in 2006 largely on a platform of, "we're not them." But Matt Bai, the writer for the New York Times Magazine, warns that's not enough anymore... it's time for the party to define where it stands, and to come up with an argument. That's also the title of his new book (not the wordy part, but The Argument: Billionaires, Bloggers, and the Battle to Remake Democratic Politics). Bai will be in the studio today, and take your questions and comments.
