Aspen Ideas Festival: David Brooks and Katie Couric

David Brooks and Katie Couric in conversation at this summer's Aspen Ideas Festival. They chose the title "Love and Life in General" for their wide-ranging discussion. David Brooks says he's a moderate, but he's not in the middle...because both sides have a piece of the truth and politics is always full of contradictions and paradoxes. Brooks and Couric covered everything from the culture wars and parenting, to the moral ecology of different parts of the United States, and political leadership.
