“Who is the Greatest American President?”  Dr. Tom Hilburn, Wednesday, October 12th

Tom, with audience participation, will explore what qualities and circumstances from  the first 170 years of the presidency make a President “great.” He will consider former presidents who  are likely contenders for such a title, and which ones should be designated as “greatest.”  The purpose is to prepare us for the 2016 election, without advocating any particular candidate.
