Barack Obama versus Mitt Romney: The Final Stretch
The end of the conventions marks the start of the final lap of a nearly two-year presidential campaign, a verdict on President Obama’s tenure and a very real chance for the election of a president from Massachusetts. Peter Canellos, Editorial Page Editor of The Boston Globe will moderate a talk featuring Michael Grunwald, author of The New New Deal, an account of Obama’s stimulus bill and handling of the US economy; Sasha Issenberg, author of The Victory Lab, a book about how modern campaigns are driven by scientific research, and Charlie Baker, former Republican candidate for Governor of Massachusetts.
Michael Grunwald is a Time Magazine senior correspondent and former political reporter for The Boston Globe. He has won the George Polk Award for national reporting, the Worth Bingham Award for investigative reporting, and many other prizes. The Washington Post called his first book, The Swamp, “a brilliant work of research and reportage,” and The New York Times called him “a terrific writer.” He lives in Florida.
Sasha Issenberg is a columnist for Slate and the Washington correspondent for Monocle. He covered the 2008 election as a national political correspondent for The Boston Globe, and his work has also appeared in New York, The Atlantic, and The New York Times Magazine. His first book, The Sushi Economy, was published in 2007
Charlie Baker is the former president of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and former Republican Candidate for Governor of Massachusetts.
