The Ohio Primary Question: Bystander or Pacesetter?

: John C. Green, director of the Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics, will talk about the primary process, warts and all, and give a preview of the fall presidential election at noon on Friday, February 15, 2008, at The City Club of Cleveland.


Unlike the fall’s general election, Ohio is often overlooked during the primary season by candidates who campaign heavily in states with primaries earlier than Ohio’s March primary. However, this year is an exception.

Heading out of Super Tuesday, the Democratic and Republican nominees for president are still not locked up. What will
Ohio’s role be in deciding these nominees? Is “so goes Ohio, so goes the nation” still true?

Green is a Distinguished Professor of Political Science and a senior fellow with the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, and is best known for his work on religion and politics.

He is co-author of The Bully Pulpit: The Politics of Protestant Clergy; Religion and the Culture Wars: Dispatches From the Front; and The Diminishing Divide: Religion’s Changing Role in American Politics. In addition, he is co-editor of The State of the Parties, Multiparty Politics in America, and Financing the 1996 Election.

The Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics is a bipartisan research and teaching institute dedicated to the nuts and bolts of practical politics. Green is widely known as an observer of Ohio and national politics, and he is frequently quoted in the national and state media.

Homeownership and U.S.-America’s Future

_The Honorable Alphonso Jackson, secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), will speak about the housing crisis, actions being taken to address it, and initiatives, such as FHASecure and HOPE NOW, to create a more stable housing market in the future at noon on Friday, February 22, 2008, at The City Club of Cleveland.


Confirmed as secretary in March 2004, Jackson first joined the Bush Administration in June 2001, as HUD’s deputy secretary and COO, where he managed the day-to-day operations of the $32 billion agency. Immediately preceding his appointment at HUD, he served as president of American Electric Power-TEXAS.


From 1989 to 1996, Jackson was president and CEO of the Housing Authority of the City of Dallas, which ranked as one of the best-managed large-city housing agencies in the country during his tenure. Prior to that, he was director of the Department of Public and Assisted Housing in Washington, D.C., and served as chairperson for the District of Columbia Redevelopment Land Agency Board.

In 1977, Jackson became the director of Public Safety for the City of St. Louis. He also served as executive director for the St. Louis Housing Authority.

An expert on public housing and urban issues, Jackson has served on a number of national and state commissions, most notably the General Services Commission of the State of Texas, where he served as chairman; the National Commission on America’s Urban Families; and the National Commission on Severely Distressed Public Housing.
