Having difficulty sorting through the crowded field of contenders for the presidency? Who’ll win Iowa… New Hampshire… Super Tuesday? Are we headed for a brokered convention, and what exactly does that mean anyway? Here to help us figure out who might – and should, in their informed opinions – be the last man – or woman – standing when all the debates are over, political ads run, and votes cast are two savvy, seasoned strategists who’ve stumped for some of the biggest players in politics, including President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Senators Charles Schumer and George Allen, and Governor John Kasich.

Rockefeller College is pleased to welcome progressive pundit, radio host, political consultant and attorney Christopher Hahn, BA '94 and veteran White House and Congressional advisor Ron Christie for a vigorous debate over the candidates and policies shaping this year’s race for the White House.

Attorney and noted political analyst/strategist Michael Tobman, BA '95 will moderate what promises to be a spirited and enlightening discussion.
