2012 Elections are Over: What Can We Expect Now?
Presented by Bill Hall, Bradley University Professor Emeritus of Political Science and popular OLLI instructor, this lecture takes place after we learn the outcome of the November 2012 elections for the President and Congress. So what happens now?
What are the “battleground” issues, where are the polarized positions, and how are the politicians who won their elections likely to deal with these issues? Dr. Hall will provide an unbiased, impartial perspective on what we can expect from the Congress and President, along with his thoughts about what is needed to change the current dynamic of bitter partisanship that fails to address America's significant challenges.
