Host: Center of the American Experiment. Every four years the country turns its attention to electing the next president of the United States. As the power and reach of the federal government has grown over the years, the importance of electing the right man (or woman) has increased accordingly. The direction the country takes on Iraq, Supreme Court Justices, health care reform, Social Security reform, and many other important issues will be heavily influenced by the winner in November. Join noted author and syndicated columnist, David Brooks, at the 2008 Fall Briefing on November 12 at the Pantages Theatre in downtown Minneapolis. David Brooks is a columnist for The New York Times and a regular analyst on both the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. Largely responsible for coining the terms “Red State” and “Blue State” after the 2004 elections, David Brooks will have many insightful—and funny—things to say about the post-election direction of our country and what it might mean for conservative values and ideas.
