Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Jon Meacham on the evolution of Abraham Lincoln's moral principles and political leadership -- and what the era of Lincoln can teach us about the state of our democracy today.
Even in the best of circumstances, our election systems are vulnerable. Now, as Americans prepare to vote for the next President, it might not even be possible to get to the polls. Primaries are being moved. And while it’s far too early to predict what the state of social distancing will be in November, experts say we must prepare now for the general election now.
One of those people is Edward Foley, election law professor at Ohio State University. Diane spoke with him Tuesday afternoon.
Note: this is Diane’s first podcast since working remotely. She’s quite literally hosting from her living room! We hope to hear from you during this difficult time. Please share your experiences, concerns and suggestions for what you would like us to talk about on future episodes.
- Edward Foley Professor and director of the election law program, Ohio State University; author of "Ballot Battles: The History of Disputed Elections in the United States"
