HuffPost’s “Elite” Live Book Chat Today at 2 p.m.

HuffPost hosts a live conversation today between “Shadow Elite” author Janine Wedel and HuffPost Washington Bureau Chief Dan Froomkin.

It’s a chance to ask questions – intelligent ones if you want.

Later Wedel is set to appear on MSNBC’s “The Dylan Ratigan Show” at 4 p.m. EST to discuss the recent controversial Supreme Court ruling to eliminate limits on campaign funding advertising by corporations and unions.

Wedel’s book is Arianna’s second book club pick. The book has “initiated a crucial debate during the past month over the survival of democracy in America,” claims HuffPost.

Read why Huffington chose the book:
“My first HuffPost Book Club selection of 2010 is Janine Wedel’s Shadow Elite: How the World’s New Power Brokers Undermine Democracy, Government, and the Free Market. It’s a gripping, disquieting book that exposes and explains why it’s been so hard to bring about any real change in our country — why Washington no longer seems capable of addressing the problems our nation faces. Fingers have been pointed at everything from gerrymandering to partisan polarization to the misuse of the filibuster. But, according to Wedel, the real problem is much deeper — and more disturbing — than any of these.”
