The case for bipartisanship

PHOTO BY MONICA CABRERA/TNS

 

Throughout his career in Washington, Raymond LaHood has purported that partisan pettiness is hindering our nation’s ability to successfully face its challenges, which range from a crumbling infrastructure to terrorism to economic growth. A Washington veteran, LaHood worked as chief of staff for the House minority leader, served as a representative in Congress, and was named transportation secretary by President Barack Obama. LaHood recently released his memoir entitled Seeking Bipartisanship: My Life in Politics, and on Tuesday LaHood will be interviewed regarding his new book and the issues it raises by Mike Lawrence, the retired director of the Paul Simon Public Policy institute. LaHood will also answer audience questions, sign books and chat with attendees. The book, described as a “thoroughly entertaining memoir” by historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, will be available for purchase during the event.
