Past and Future

We continue our coverage from the 2008 Aspen Ideas Festival with a special Fourth of July panel. What can our next president learn from previous ones - most notably maverick and war hero Theodore Roosevelt? Author and Supreme Court clerk Joshua Hawley, Stanford University historian David Kennedy, Congresswoman Jane Harman, (D-CA), and former Clinton chief of staff and president and CEO of the Center for American Progress John Podesta weigh in.
