BPC Senior Fellows Secretary Dan Glickman and Senator Pete Domenici held a reception to welcome BPC’s new class of senior fellows, a group National Journal calls a “roster of political all-stars.” Senators Bob Bennett, Byron Dorgan, Bill Frist, Trent Lott, and General (ret.) Jim Jones, along with Domenici and Glickman, have made BPC “one of Washington’s most attractive destinations for former lawmakers, Cabinet officials and others.”
BPC Co-Founder Senator Tom Daschle provided remarks. In attendance were members of BPC’s Governors’ Council, including former Governors Phil Bredesen, Jim Douglas, Linda Lingle, Mike Rounds, and Ted Strickland. Senator John Kerry, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, former Representative Jane Harman, former Secretary Dirk Kempthorne, and Democratic strategist James Carville were also among the guests.
