Boston: Why Presidents Fail – A Conversation with Elaine Kamarck
April 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm| $95 / $125
Join TCI for a conversation with Elaine Kamarck.
From the botched attempt to rescue the U.S. diplomats held hostage by Iran in 1980 under President Jimmy Carter and the missed intelligence on Al Qaeda before 9-11 under George W. Bush to, most recently, the computer meltdown that marked the arrival of health care reform under Barack Obama, the American presidency has been a profile in failure.
Join us for a luncheon conversation with Elaine C. Kamarck, author of Why Presidents Fail and How They Can Succeed Again, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, and Lecturer at the Harvard Kennedy School, to discuss these and other presidential failures, to understand why Americans have lost faith in their leaders and how they can get it back.
