Two for the Seesaw

Just a week before the presidential election, two commentators from CNN’s popular Crossfire will debate the campaign as this year’s Cohen Arts and Lectures speakers.

Paul Begala, who worked on the Clinton-Gore campaign and then became a senior strategist in the Clinton White House, takes the left-hand point of view. Tucker Carlson, a former writer for the Weekly Standard, represents the right.

In truth, though, both have moved toward the center in their writing and their on-air jousting.

They will speak at 8:00 p.m. tonight in Johnston Hall. The discussion is free to the College community. To the general public, admission is $10 at the door or from Ext. 7880.

The series is now in its 21st year. Proceeds go to the Cohen Scholarships, which this year have been awarded to seniors Christine Bobick, English; Amy Cortese, psychology and sociology; Christopher Kindred, historical studies; and Chelsea Mullins, art education.
