I need a liberal but-not-too-liberal political book to give my dad.

I have agreed to read a book by Bill O'Rielly that my dad wants me to read, if I can pick out the next book he reads. What should I pick?

My dad is 75 and staunchly republican (mostly staunchly pro-life). He is generally willing to engage in debate and to listen. He's agreed to read something I pick out. Unfortunately I haven't read much of all lately. I'll read whatever it is first. I'd like to to be center to left-of-center politically. He seems to like the O'Rielly book because it reminds him of his growing up. I've considered Obama's books. I want it to be a book that we can talk about that doesn't make him think "all liberals are crazy" or "all democrats are commies". What else should I consider?
