Gwen Ifill part of CUNA-sponsored election review
WASHINGTON (11/05/08)--Credit unions will gain broad exposure before a vital audience in the nation's capital during a presidential election discussion organized by the National Journal and “The News Hour with Jim Lehrer.” Today’s session, billed as “The Day After: An Exclusive, Insiders’ Play-by-Play,” will include the following panelists:
* Charlie Cook, political analyst, National Journal; * Gwen Ifill, senior correspondent, “The News Hour,” who also was moderator of a debate between candidates for vice president, Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) and Alaska’s Governor Sarah Palin; and * Amy Walter, editor-in-chief, The Hotline.
The program participants are expected to analyze events that lead up to and culminated in the historic election of the Democratic candidate, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, whose sweeping victory also represents the first time a non-white candidate has run for and been elected as president of the country. CUNA Political Affairs Senior Vice President Richard Gose said through CUNA’s participation in the news event, "insiders from Capitol Hill and in the Washington lobbying community will see credit unions actively engaged in the political arena."
