PLEASE NOTE: Politico’s Mike Allen was originally scheduled for this program, but has been forced to cancel his appearance due to personal reasons. Replacing him will be RealClearPolitics Washington bureau chief Carl Cannon.
Just ahead of February’s Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary, the Kansas City Public Library and the Truman Library Institute launch a new season of Dateline: Washington focusing on the 2016 elections – the candidates, their campaigns, and the hot-button issues. Time magazine Editor-at-Large David Von Drehle holds a public conversation with RealClearPolitics’ Carl Cannon, taking an insider’s look at politics, partisanship, and the election playbook.
Carl Cannon is the Washington bureau chief at RealClearPolitics and co-author of Reagan’s Disciple: George W. Bush’s Troubled Quest for a Presidential Legacy. He has won numerous awards, including a share of the Pulitzer Prize in 1989 and the Gerald R. Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting of the Presidency.
The Dateline: Washington series is co-presented by the Kansas City Public Library and the Truman Library Institute, and is made possible by grants from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Legacy Fund.
