Talk by the "Aristotle of American politics" will take place at Johns Hopkins on Nov. 8.
CNN senior political analyst Bill Schneider will present a post-election lecture at 8 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 8, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, located at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. The 45-minute lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer period in the Clipper Room.

Schneider's lecture is part of the 2004 Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium, "Rebuilding America: Peace and Prosperity at What Price? A Symposium on a Struggling Domestic Legitimacy," a student-run series examining what the future holds for America.

Schneider has held his current post at CNN since 1991. His research and analysis into politics, the presidency and public opinion make him a prominent voice in the US political arena. The Washington Post has called him "the election-meister" and the Boston Globe called him the "Aristotle of American politics." He is a regular contributor to The Atlantic Monthly, the National Journal, and The Los Angeles Times.

Schneider co-authored The Confidence Gap: Business, Labor and Government in the Public Mind with Seymour Martin Lipset. He holds a bachelor's degree from Brandeis University and a doctorate in political science from Harvard University. Schneider was a professor of government at Harvard, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University as well as a fellow on International Affairs at the Council on Foreign Relations. He has also taught at Brandeis and Boston College. A full bio is available online here.

The lecture and reception are free and open to the public. For more information, call (410) 516-7683, visit this ref. page or e-mail mse@jhu.edu.
