Author of several books, including Politics: Observations & Arguments, Hertzberg served as speech-writer for President Jimmy Carter and for several years was editor of The New Republic.
The discussion will be moderated by Rachel Sklar a senior contributing editor for the Huffington Post and editor of the site's "Eat the Press" page. Rachel has contributed to the New York Times, the New York Post, the Village Voice, New York Magazine and many publications in homeland of Canadian.
