Coming from a lower class family in a small town, one politician wants to inspire young people to pursue opportunities and improve current democracy.  Former Senator Larry Pressler has published a new book, Senator Pressler: An Independent Mission to Save Our Democracy. He says today's democracy is poisonous and voters are apathetic. Pressler wants to rediscover America's ethical core through education, journalism and self-esteem. He also touches on his background in Vietnam and his diverse philosophical and religious views.

Lori Walsh is the host and senior producer of In the Moment.
