Public Roundtable: Political Demography and Partisan Gridlock

February 11, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Manoa Campus, East-West Center, John A. Burns Hall, room 3012 Add to Calendar

Lou Cannon, longtime Washington Post White House correspondent, nationally syndicated columnist and award-winning Ronald Reagan biographer, will discuss the changing political demographics and continuing partisan gridlock in Washington.

Cannon will expand on his view that both sides will have to change: Republicans will need to modify their positions on social issues and immigration or risk remaining a permanent minority, while Democrats will have to go beyond taxing the wealthy and reducing military spending in order to make a meaningful dent in the federal deficit.

Widely known for his many years as a syndicated columnist and correspondent, Lou Cannon is also considered the premier biographer of the late President Ronald Reagan. Cannon worked 26 years for The Washington Post as political reporter, White House correspondent, columnist, and Los Angeles bureau chief. He has also written cover stories for California Journal, National Review, and The New York Times Magazine, contributed op-ed articles to The New York Times and L.A. Times, and has been a frequent commentator on television and radio.

Cannon has won numerous awards including the White House Correspondents Association’s coveted Aldo Beckman award for overall excellence in presidential coverage, and the Gerald R. Ford Prize for distinguished reporting on the Nixon, Ford, and Reagan presidencies.

Cannon is now a freelance writer who lectures on the presidency, police issues, the media and California.
