Tonight, starting at 6:30 p.m., I will be participating in a New America Foundation debate/discussion at the CORE: Club on 66 East 55th Street. Here's the invite language:
Can We Find Middle Ground in Left vs. Right America?
As the election season approaches, we take a look at the current political climate. How might bipartisanship find opportunities to blossom? And where do the extremes of both Democrats and Republicans fit?
