This edition: Election 2008: The Endurance of Identity PoliticsTweet
Original tape date: September 23, 2008.
Moderator Bob Liff, CUNY-TV, and a panel of experts discuss the impact of race, gender and age on the 2008 Presidential race. Particular attention is given to voting publics in swing states, such as Ohio and Pennsylvania, as well as the implications of an Obama or McCain Presidency among newer voters and those traditionally under-represented at election time. The panel concludes that race matters, as does gender and generation among American voters and those running for office.
