More Information
Karl Rove and James Carville will engage in a spirited, insightful and provocative discussion as they both speak with authority and passion about today’s political landscape and what we can expect from the election in November. Each speaker will examine the political issues of the day based on their unique relationships – James Carville from his years as a longtime advisor to President William Jefferson Clinton, and Karl Rove from his years as one of President George W. Bush's closest confidants and advisors. The highly-partisan atmosphere in Washington and constant power shifts over the last few years have proven that the old rules of politics and power are gone—maybe forever. Why is this happening? Are politicians intentionally dividing the electorate for political gain? Why have things become so partisan? They will dissect the extreme political forces shaping the country and show what trends from the last two decades mean for our political future and for the election in November. This session is moderated by Michelle Bernard, political analyst, MSNBC and founder, The Bernard Center for Women, Politics and Public Policy. James Carville and Michelle Bernard are represented by the Washington Speakers Bureau. Karl Rove is represented by the Harry Walker Agency.
