Clinton and the Newt Congress Debate Topic


OXFORD, Ohio -- Bob Beckel and Tony Snow will present a debate on "Clinton and the Newt Congress--Leading up to Battleground 2000" at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 25, in Miami University's Hall Auditorium.

Beckel is one of Washington's leading political analysts. He is a veteran of dozens of election campaigns, including presidential runs by Robert Kennedy in 1968 and Walter Mondale in 1984. As the youngest deputy assistant secretary of state in history, he steered the controversial Panama Canal Treaties through Congress.

He is co-host of CNN's Crossfire Sunday and regularly appears on CBS This Morning. In addition, he writes a syndicated column for the Los Angeles Times.

Snow has been a nationally syndicated columnist with the Detroit News since 1993 and a columnist for USA Today since 1994. His writings appear in more than 200 newspapers nationwide.

In 1991, Snow took a sabbatical from journalism to work in the White House for George Bush, first as chief speechwriter and later as deputy assistant to the president for media affairs.

The debate is sponsored by Miami's Lecture Series. It is free and open to the public, but tickets are necessary for admittance. Tickets will be available starting at 6 p.m. the day of the debate at the Hall Auditorium box office.
