No need to leave the Colby network to get an inside look at the political questions of the day. At a March 22 alumni event in Washington, D.C., two of Colby’s most prominent alumni in political analysis, Amy Walter ’91 and Stuart Rothenberg ’70, joined Colby parent Geoffrey Garin to share insight on the upcoming presidential election.

Walter, political director of ABC News, Rothenberg, editor and publisher of The Rothenberg Political Report, and Garin, president of Peter D. Hart Research Associates, agreed the race—which they expected to be between Obama and Romney—will be a close one. The panel discussion, moderated by Robert Hoopes ’89, president of VOX Global, was sponsored by the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement and attended by more than 100 Colby alumni and parents.
