Many of us in Washington viewed last year's inauguration with mixed feelings. While the historical impact was not forgotten, many had hope that the newly elected President Obama would bring wisdom and discernment to the office, others viewed the new president warily, unsure of his short resume and progressive past. A year later, what is the verdict? What have been Obama's defining actions and accomplishments? Join our panelists as we rehash the first year, and take a look at what the Obama Administration has in store for 2010.
Joining us to discuss this first year will be Jeff Berkowitz (director of research at the Republic National Committee) , on the political implications, and Tim Carney (author of Obamanomics) will serve as moderator and will comment on economic policies.
This roundtable will take place Thursday, January 21st at the Fund for American Studies (1706 New Hampshire Ave. NW), drinks at 6:30 discussion at 7pm. AFF Roundtables are free for members, and $5 for non-members, so join today! Please RSVP to Sarah Friederich atSarah@americasfuture.org.
