Washington Post Columnist E.J. Dionne Lectures on NH Primary
November 19, 2007
Described as “one of Washington’s finest thinkers,” the New Hampshire Institute of Politics was happy to welcome E.J. Dionne as a senior research fellow for the 2008 New Hampshire Primary, quickly deploying him to guest lecture in a number of classes. Dionne began his career in political journalism at The New York Times, where he wrote for 14 years. He then moved to The Washington Post in 1993, and has remained there since. Drafting a biweekly column that appears in more than 90 newspapers both in the United States and around the world, Dionne has penned several columns this fall from his office at the NHIOP. In addition to his duties at Saint Anselm College, Dionne is also a Brookings Institution senior research fellow and Georgetown University professor
This podcast features a public lecture delivered by Dionne on November 5, 2007, that addresses the history of the New Hampshire Primary, and it’s current role in American politics. Following his lecture, Dionne took a number of questions from the audience on topics including the affect that the lengthening campaign has on voters, the media, and the candidates themselves.
