The costliest presidential campaign in American history is slated to end on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, as millions of Americans vote in the presidential race pitting President Barack Obama against Governor Mitt Romney. Gathering only hours after the known outcome (presumably) of the election, a panel of faculty experts will discuss who won, why, and what does the election mean for the future direction of the country?
