CSPAN will be covering a conference put on by the Center for American Progress around noon today EST discussing the “real” values voter. I’ll be appearing along with several interesting folks including:
Reverend Timothy C. Ahrens, Senior Minister, First Church, Columbus, Ohio, and a founding member of We Believe, Ohio
Anna Greenberg, Vice President, Greenberg Quinlan Rosner
Jonathan Miller, Treasurer of the State of Kentucky and author of The Compassionate Community: Ten Values to Unite America
Reverend Samuel Rodriguez, President, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference
Here’s the official description:
From immigration, stem cells, and corruption to paychecks and war, the issues voters cared about in the midterm election reflect deeply held values far beyond those promoted by right-wing conservatives. On November 7, voters sent a strong message for change in domestic and international policies and for government that is ethical and accountable.
What do the midterm elections tell us about the concerns and hopes of the country? Do we remain a deeply divided, polarized nation? What role did faith communities play? Please join our distinguished panel of experts for a provocative, enlightening conversation on 2006 and beyond.
