Eleanor Clift - Forecasting the Presidential Election
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
Reporter/pundit Eleanor Clift joins Kansas City Public Library Director Crosby Kemper III for a public conversation about 2012 presidential election.
Today electing a president is vastly more complex an undertaking than what was envisioned by the Founding Fathers. Yet the process remains exciting and hugely important. And if it is sometimes disillusioning, it can also be inspiring.
Clift and Kemper will discuss the nuts and bolts of our electoral system while drawing on rich historical anecdotes from past campaigns.
Clift is a contributing editor for Newsweek and a regular on the McLaughlin Group.
