    Donna Brazile is a veteran Democratic political strategist, adjunct professor, author, syndicated columnist, television political commentator, vice chair of Voter Registration and Participation at the Democratic National Committee and former interim National Chair of the DNC. She has also served as Chair of the DNC's Voting Rights Institute. Brazile worked on every political campaign from 1976 through 2000, when she became the first African-American to manage a presidential campaign.

    . Mary Matalin is an author, television and radio host, and widely sought after political contributor, pundit and public speaker, she has become noted for her straightforward manner and insightful political repartee. Among her many roles and accomplishments, she has served under President Ronald Reagan, made her mark as George H.W. Bush's Campaign Director and most recently as assistant to President George W. Bush, and as assistant and counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney, making her the first White House official to hold that double title.

    Lifelong friends, Donna Brazile and Mary Matalin will discuss their careers, current events, and the 2016 presidential election, offering opposing viewpoints and perspectives from both sides of the aisle.
