Event Details

Join a discussion with a panel of experts who will analyze President Obama’s re-election victory, and the prospects for his second term in the White House.

  • Mark Barabak, Los Angeles Times
  • Tammy Frisby, Stanford University
  • Jennifer Granholm, Former Governor State of Michigan
  • Lynn Vavreck, UCLA

The President won a clear but narrow victory, carrying fewer states and receiving a lower share of the popular vote than he did in 2008. At the same time voters stuck with the status quo in Congress — a Republican House and a Democratic Senate. So was the election a mandate for the President or merely a rejection of Republican nominee Mitt Romney?

In either case, what should we expect from the second Obama Administration? Will it be more of the same, or a changed style of leadership? How much of the President’s agenda is tied to the economy? What about foreign policy events over which the President has no control?
