Elections 2008: What’s at stake

CLEVELAND: Governor Deval Patrick, Massachusetts’ first African-American governor, speaks about the great importance of this Presidential election—what’s at stake and the broader implications of a change we’re witnessing in U.S. politics—at 5 p.m. on Friday, August 1, 2008, at The City Club of Cleveland.

Gov. Patrick will also discuss the claim that Barack Obama, and others, are placing on our citizenship, what that means for us as voters, and what it means for the future of politics. 

A graduate of Harvard, Patrick spent a post-graduate year working on a United Nations youth training project in the Darfur region of Sudan. He returned to the U.S. to attend Harvard Law School in 1979, and served as a law clerk to a federal appellate judge before joining the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. In 1986, he joined the Boston law firm of Hill & Barlow and was named partner in 1990.

In 1994, President Clinton appointed Patrick Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights. During his tenure at the Justice Department, he led the largest criminal investigation prior to September 11th, coordinating state, local, and federal agencies to investigate church burnings throughout the South in the mid 1990s.

In 1997, Patrick was appointed by a federal district court to serve as the first chairperson of Texaco’s Equality and Fairness Task Force and was hired by Texaco in 1999 to serve as vice president and general counsel. In 2001, he joined The Coca-Cola Company as executive vice president and general counsel. Patrick has served on numerous charitable and corporate boards, as well as the Federal Election Reform Commission under Presidents Carter and Ford.

What does the World really want from the United States?

Ambassador Nancy Soderberg, a visiting scholar at the University of N. Florida in Jacksonville, speaks about her new book The Prosperity Agenda: What the World Wants from America—and What We Need in Return at noon on Friday, August 1, 2008, at The City Club of Cleveland.

Soderberg and her co-author Brian Katulis argue that the U.S. should go to the citizens of troubled nations and give them what they need most: vaccines, disaster relief, and economic prosperity. Working to improve the basic lives of people will, in the end, help defeat terrorism, increase U.S.-America’s leverage against its enemies, weaken dictatorships, and save the lives of millions.

Soderberg ran the New York office of the International Crisis Group as vice president (2001-05). From 1997 to 2001, she served as alternate representative to the United Nations, with the rank of ambassador. Her responsibilities included representing the U.S. at the Security Council on a wide range of current national security issues, including conflict resolution, promotion of democracy abroad, trade policy, and arms control, and promoting U.S. national security policy at the United Nations and with the leadership of other nations.

Soderberg served as deputy assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (From 1993-97), foreign policy director for the Clinton/Gore 1992 Campaign, and senior foreign policy advisor to Senator Edward M. Kennedy. She has been active in national Democratic politics since the early 1980s, serving in a variety of capacities in national presidential campaigns since 1984.

Soderberg is a regular commentator on national and international television and radio, including NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, BBC, Fox, National Public Radio, Lehrer News Hour, CNN Crossfire, and The Daily Show. She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and has been an adjunct professor at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.

Tickets are $18 for members and $30 for non-members. Lunch is included. They can be purchased by calling The City Club at 216.621.0082 or visiting the website at www.cityclub.org.
