Thomas A. Daschle, former U.S. senator and majority leader from South Dakota
Special Guest Senator George J. Mitchell
Each year this series welcomes a prominent foreign policy leader to campus for a lecture to foster interaction among students, faculty, and members of the greater Waterville community while honoring former U.S. senator, statesman, international negotiator, and Waterville native George Mitchell. Daschle served in the U.S. Senate from 1987 to 2005. He is one of the longest serving Senate Democratic leaders in history and the only one to serve twice as both majority and minority leader. During his tenure, Daschle navigated the Senate through some of its most historic economic and national security challenges. In 2003 he chronicled some of these experiences in his book, Like No Other Time: The 107th Congress and the Two Years That Changed America Forever.
