Political analysts discuss Bush presidency, April 12

noted political analysts will evaluate how George W. Bush has faired in his first 12 weeks in office in a roundtable discussion at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12 in Robertson Hall (Dodds Auditorium) on the Princeton University campus.

Despite the troubled 2000 election, Bush "hit the ground with astonish professionalism," said Fred I. Greenstein, chairman of Princeton's Program in Leadership Studies and professor of politics in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. "But more recently, questions have arisen about how effective the new president has been in advancing his ambitious agenda."

The discussion, "The Presidency of George W. Bush: An Early Appraisal," brings together well-known presidential analysts: David Gergen, co-director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government and former aide to Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton; Ronald A. Heifetz, co-director of the Center for Public Leadership; Barbara Kellerman, executive director of the Center for Public Leadership; and Norman Ornstein, resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington. Greenstein will moderate the discussion.

The roundtable is co-sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School Program in Leadership Studies at Princeton University and the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University. It is free and open to the public.
