Earlier in the week, our Annual Review of the Presidency took place. A stellar group of panelists engaged in a thought-provoking debate, touching on everything from Obama’s campaign organization, to Romney’s candidacy and the likelihood of a Hillary Clinton run in 2016.Though the house was packed, we know some who wanted to attend were unable to do so. The video has just gone live on YouTube, so check it out:
Thanks to all who attended Four More Years: Obama’s Re-Election and the Prospects for a Second Term! A packed house was treated to a lively discussion about the 2012 election and the future of President Obama’s tenure.
Every year, the Matsui Center combines with IGS, UC-Berkeley Extension, and student political groups to co-sponsor an examination of the presidency. This year’s event will look at both the 2012 election and the prospects for President Obama’s second term. It’s cosponsored with the Cal Democrats and the Berkeley College Republicans — two student groups that the Matsui Center works with regularly.
