Congress and the White House: Partners or Foes?
Washington, DC…On Wednesday, May 15, at 7 p.m., the National Archives hosts a panel discussion titled, “Congress and the White House: Partners or Foes?” This program is presented in partnership with the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress.
The free program will take place in the William G. McGowan Theater at the National Archives Building in Washington, DC. Use the Special Events Entrance, located at Constitution Ave. and 7th Street, NW.
The program will be webcast live (and immediately archived) on the National Archives UStream channel [http://www.ustream.tv/usnationalarchives].
Former Members of Congress will discuss how the White House and Congress can work together. They will explore how the two branches interacted in the past to try to solve our nation’s biggest problems. Anecdotal evidence of bipartisanship and common ground will lead to a focus on today’s challenges. Moderated by Peter Cook, Bloomberg TV’s chief Washington correspondent, panelists include former members of Congress Steve LaTourette (R-OH), Vic Fazio (D-CA), Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), and Senator Larry Pressler (R-SD).;
