Making sense of the election year landscape with speaker Eleanor Clift

As election year 2024 begins, it becomes increasingly likely that voters will again face a Biden-Trump choice on election day. In this environment, the outcome of Senate, congressional and even state legislative races will play a critical role in shaping the next four years. Join us as Eleanor Clift shares her perspective on the forces shaping these issues.

For nearly five decades, Eleanor Clift has been writing about politics and policy in Washington and the partisan clashes that make governing almost impossible. She is currently a columnist for the Daily Beast, an online publication, while also teaching a hugely popular course for John Hopkins University. Clift is best known as a panelist on the syndicated talk show, “The McLaughlin Group,” which ended a 34-year run in 2016. Formerly Newsweek’s White House correspondent, Clift has covered every presidential campaign since 1976. She has appeared as herself in several movies, including “Dave,” “Independence Day,” “Murder at 1600,” “Rising Sun,” and the CBS series, “Murphy Brown.” Clift and her late husband, Tom Brazaitis, who was a columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, wrote two books together, War Without Bloodshed: The Art of Politics and Madam President: Shattering the Last Glass Ceiling. Clift’s book, Founding Sisters, is about the passage of the 19th amendment giving women the vote (2003). Selecting a President, written with Matthew Spieler (2012), examines the process that, for all its flaws, looks better than the alternative. Her book, Two Weeks of Life: A Memoir of Love, Death and Politics, is about the loss of her husband together with an examination of how we deal with death in America. In it she wrote, “Religion and politics are supposed to be separate.”
