Norms Upended? U.S. Post-Election Politics, from Hanging Chads in 2000 to Challenges in 2020
Join two IGL alumni, Matt Bai (A90) and Daniel Feldman (A89), for a discussion of U.S. election norms, recent contested presidential election results, and what might happen after November 3.

Matt Bai is a nationally known journalist, author and screenwriter. Starting in 2002, he covered three presidential campaigns for the New York Times, where he was the chief political writer for the Sunday magazine and a columnist for the newspaper. He then spent five years as the national political columnist for Yahoo News. In January 2020, he became a contributing columnist for the Washington Post. Bai’s most recent book, All the Truth is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid looks at the ruinous scandal involving the presidential candidate Gary Hart in 1987 and how it shaped the political and media culture.

Daniel F. Feldman is Senior of Counsel at Covington in Washington, DC. Ambassador Feldman previously served as deputy and then Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan (SRAP) at the U.S. Department of State, where he was accorded the personal rank of Ambassador by President Obama. He was a principal advisor to Secretaries of State John Kerry and Hillary Rodham Clinton regarding Afghanistan, Pakistan, and broader South, Central, and East Asian issues. In over six years at the State Department spearheading the Afghanistan and Pakistan portfolio, he oversaw all economic development initiatives, international engagement, strategic communications, Congressional outreach, and external stakeholder efforts.
