Thursday, February 3, 2011 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Join veteran journalists and commentators Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune and Naftali Bendavid of the Wall Street Journal as they discuss and offer a prognosis of the health of the American body politic. Taking President Obama’s State of the Union address as their starting point, Page and Bendavid will offer their assessments of Obama’s own “vision thing,” his attempts at bipartisanship at a time of increasingly virulent political divisions, and the strategic decisions he has made from the timing of major legislative initiatives to his conduct of the wars and selection of deputies. Q & A to follow.
