New York City and Washington, D.C. represent two distinct poles in America: the capital of finance and the capital of power.  For the issue of The New York Times Magazine that was published the week before the 2012 presidential election, magazine editor Hugo Lindgren questioned our nation's progress: these two cities might be home to incalculable wealth and influence, but what about the America between them?
