NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University will host Democratic Political Consultant and CNN Contributor James Carville and Republican Political Consultant and CNN Contributor Mary Matalin in a look at today's most important political issues as well as a behind-the-scenes look at politics inside Washington and how today's headlines are playing out around the country on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. in Plumley Armory.

This event is part of the annual Todd Lecture Series.

Carville is the unbowed liberal and former co-host of Crossfire, while conservative Matalin most recently served as both counselor to the vice president and assistant to President George W. Bush.

Matalin and Carville are key players on the national political stage; between them they have over 25 years of experience working for every president over the last three decades.

Matalin served as President George Bush's campaign manager in 1992, while her then soon-to-be husband, Carville, was President Bill Clinton's campaign manager.

Now they share their political opinions and affiliations—which haven't merged despite matrimony—with audiences everywhere and provide a stimulating, candid and provocative analysis of today's hot-button political issues from both sides of the political aisle.

Carville and Matalin are the authors of the national best seller, All's Fair: Love, War, and Running for President.

The discussion will be moderated by Associate Professor of Political Science Jason Jagemann.

This event is free and open to the public; however tickets are required for entry. To reserve tickets please call 802-485-2633 or email toddlectureseries@norwich.edu.

The event can also be watched live online at www.nsnsports.net/norwich.

The Todd Lecture Series is named in honor of US Army retired Maj. Gen. and Norwich President Emeritus W. Russell Todd, ‘50, and his wife, Carol, in gratitude for their dedicated service to the University. With this series, Norwich reaches out to bring important, significant lecturers to campus.
