This is the year of the institute for Ruth and me. The Aspen Institue has a national reputation, and we are here during part of its Hurst Lecture Series.
We missed hearing Ruth Bader Ginsburg talk about Antonin Scalia because her presence wasn’t announced in the media. According to Ginsburg, reportedly, she and Scalia were very close friends despite political differences.
Yesterday we heard Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe speak. Because he runs the only state with a one-term limit, he will be available to campaign for President in 2020 and is clearly interested. Glib and forthright, McAuliffe called today, “Ground Zero for Democrats” if they want to win future elections.
Today, Condoleezza Rice speaks.
