Prof. Price on Aftermath of Election

Melanye Price

Last night I attended a live taping of the WNPR program Where We Live at Real Art Ways in Hartford, where Assistant Professor of Government Melanye Price joined Hartford Courant columnist Larry Cohen and two-time Democratic nominee for Governor Bill Curry to talk about the aftermath of the 2008 election.

It was an interesting panel. Cohen suggested that Barack Obama getting 52% of the electoral vote in this political climate should be considered a miserable failure. Price spoke about the significance of youth turnout. Curry remarked that Joe the Plumber, having no issue attached to him, might signal that conservative issues are out of steam.

My summary, however, is not as interesting. You can listen to the podcast and view a photo slideshow on the Where We Live website.
