Beyond Bush

How to win back America

| May / June 2003

UTNE IS AN officially non-partisan magazine, and if you don’t believe me, flip to page 152. That’s where we profile one of our readers, James D. Hodgson, who served as Richard Nixon’s Secretary of Labor and helped enact the controversial Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).

But this column, I should warn you, makes a rather partisan appeal—a fact explained in part by Mr. Hodgson’s presence in our pages. Can you imagine a Bush cabinet member reading a magazine like Utne, or proposing regulations to ensure safer working conditions for all Americans? The GOP today is not your father’s Republican party. (It’s not even Bush’s father’s party.) Guess how long a genuinely compassionate conservative like James Hodgson would last in Washington these days?
