On July 16, Karl Rove and David Axelrod delivered the fifth annual Daniel K. Inouye Distinguished Lecture in the Library of Congress’s Coolidge Auditorium.
Ann Compton, former ABC News Chief Washington Correspondent, moderated the conversation between the two political strategists.
Axelrod and Rove reminisced about their days advising presidents, and explored the current political climate, the changing landscape of social media, and challenges to democratic participation.
In the spirit of bipartisanship of the Inouye Lecture, they tackled difficult issues including the norms of civil discourse and voter engagement. Watch the full discussion here:
