An energized, although bleary-eyed, group of expert political analysts joined President Rubenstein for a luncheon discussion on November 5, the day after the mid-term elections, to share their insights regarding the results. Panelists were Mike Allen, Chief White House Correspondent, POLITICO; Charles E. Cook, Jr., Editor and Publisher, The Cook Political Report, and Judy Woodruff, Co-Anchor and Managing Editor, PBS NewsHour. Club members heartily enjoyed the behind the scenes stories the experts told about both winning and losing campaigns. On a serious note, the pundits agreed that the Republican capture of the Senate majority and increase in the number of seats held in the House of Representatives represented an election wave fueled by President Obama’s unpopularity across the country.
