Our panel of guests look back at how George Washington had a profound impact on defining the office of the president and discuss how campaigning, the election process, and the role of the media affected early presidential candidacies, and how those influences have evolved.
The panelists include Joseph J. Ellis, the Ford Foundation Professor of History at Mount Holyoke College and award-winning author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Founding Brothers" and the National Book Award winner for "American Sphinx"; Cokie Roberts, author of "Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation" and "Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation"; and John P. Riley, former historian at George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estates and Gardens and present director of education and scholarship programs at the White House Historical Association.
