With confidence in our political system at a low point, our institutions need strong leadership. BPC, in partnership with the Henry Jackson Foundation, welcomed former Senate Majority Leaders Tom Daschle and Trent Lott for a behind-the-scenes reflection on leading the Senate. Daschle and Lott discussed the peculiarities of Senate leadership, their own personal approaches to the role of majority leader, and the challenges of leading the Senate in an increasingly polarized Washington.
BPC Senior Fellow
President of the Henry M. Jackson Foundation Board of Governors
Event sponsored by the Henry M. Jackson Foundation. From 1912 until his untimely passing in 1983, Senator Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson made an indelible mark on leadership. His dedication to bipartisan, public dialogue shaped the perspectives of many in government. On the occasion of Senator Jackson’s centennial, the Jackson Foundation is pleased to release a Centennial Film about the qualities of leadership that he exhibited, through interviews with national leaders who knew and worked with him. We hope you will be able to join us in celebrating the Senator’s 100 year legacy in 2012.
