Duration: 26:00
Program: Conversations On Civility: An Iowa Perspective
Broadcast Date: May. 17, 2011

Joe Shannahan has served as communications director for the Iowa Democratic Party, part of Gov. Tom Vilsack's campaign and the 2002 Tom Harkin senate campaign. Chuck Larson, Jr was a state representative, state senator and head of the Republican Party of Iowa. Both maintain their partisan ways, but have gone into business with one another in a public policy/consulting firm. How can they do business together under one roof? Has the tenor of the debate changed or is it the same knife fight under the golden dome? This segment is a full interview with the two from their West Des Moines office.
