John Harris: Neilly Series Lecture
Noted editor at the Washington Post, John Harris will talk about his new book about presidential politics, The Way to Win. Its thesis is that the two people with the greatest understanding about how to win modern presidential campaigns are Bill Clinton and Karl Rove. Though vastly different men, with radically divergent ideas about where they would lead the country, in fact many of Clinton's and Rove's Trade Secrets for winning elections are similar. The person who intends to borrow from the experience and strategic lessons of both men for her likely presidential run in 2008 is none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton.John Harris was the Post's White House reporter during the Clinton presidency, and is now the National Politics Editor. His history of Clinton's presidency, THE SURIVOR: Bill Clinton in the White House, was a New York Times bestseller and Times notable book of the year. His second book, The Way to Win, was written with co-author Mark Halperin, the political director of ABC News.
