“What’s different now is that while political leaders used to give talking points to talk radio, now talk-radio hosts are giving talking points to political leaders.

“I’m an independent. I’m a centrist. A new generation is arriving that has grown up with a multiplicity of choice in every aspect of their lives, and yet politics is the last place that they are told that they should be satisfied with a choice between brand A and brand B.
