A Series For Serious Minds

Christine Todd Whitman
In conversation with Bob Kittle

Thursday, February 10, 2005
7:00-8:30 p.m.

One of the most powerful women in the Republican Party, Christine Todd Whitman presents a revealing, reasoned critique of her party's ideological turn to the right and a rallying call for a return to its moderate roots. In her forthcoming book, It's My Party Too, Whitman—a former two-term governor of New Jersey who retired as the Bush administration’s EPA administrator in 2003—takes readers inside the tumultuous world of politics today. She argues passionately and provocatively against the takeover of her party by zealous "social fundamentalists" who, she contends, violate traditional Republican principles and are holding the party back from achieving a true majority.
