Beginning with the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the first 100 days became the initial marker for a new presidency. Since then, political scientists, media strategists and pundits alike have examined and dissected every aspect of a new Administration - from the Inaugural Address to the first State of the Union of the new presidency. Policy proposals, staff changes, and presidential appointments are just some of the inevitable changes that a new presidency endures in its early months.

The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) brought together a panel of distinguished Washington insiders to take a look at this artificial and arbitrary marking point. Does it truly reflect the success or failure of a presidency in just over three months? Are the first 100 days the best opportunity for bipartisan cooperation on domestic and foreign policy proposals? And, if the first 100 days has lost some of its relevancy over the years, what is the fair marker of the presidency?
