LESSONS, HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE . . . AND WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2013
Robert P. Watson
DESCRIPTION: With the November election behind us, what can we expect in an Obama second term or from a Romney presidency? Join us for an analysis of the fallout from the presidential and congressional elections in terms of the policy agenda, gridlock in Washington, the Supreme Court, and other issues. We will also examine the important and difficult appointment and transition process (which will be underway in December irrespective of who wins in November), try to place this election in historical perspective, and offer lessons derived from the 2012 campaign.
