President’s Forum Event
ARI FLEISCHER, RUTH MARCUS, DAVID SANGER ADDRESS THE STATE OF THE NATION AT WESTCHESTER COMMUNITY COLLEGE EVENT ON NOVEMBER 12
Westchester Community College is pleased to present the institution’s annual President’s Forum event, United or Divided: One Year Later, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 12. A year has now passed since the 2016 presidential election. Our distinguished panel of journalists will examine the new administration and Congress, covering what has been or has not been accomplished. Do we now have more unity or more division? What can we expect in the years ahead?
The event will begin with a two-hour panel discussion moderated by Lester M. Crystal, longtime Executive Producer for the PBS NewsHour and former President of MacNeil/Lehrer Productions.
The panelists are:

Kirkpatrick Senior Fellow in National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, Boot is also a contributing editor to the Weekly Standard and the Los Angeles Times, a member of USA Today’s Board of Contributors, a columnist for Foreign Policy, and a regular contributor to the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Commentary, and other publications.
