After a drawn-out Republican primary process, the general election is finally on. What do we know about the styles and quirks of the two presidential contenders in 2012, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney? What are their strengths and weaknesses as campaigners? What is at stake, in terms of policy, in November – for Americans, for Australians, and for the world? And is this election campaign ever going to end? The Lowy Institute is pleased to present a conversation on these topics between two keen observers of US politics, Chas Licciardello and Michael Fullilove. Chas is a member of The Chaser, the co-host of ABCNEWS24’s Planet America, and an obsessive reader of US blogs. Michael is the director of the Lowy Institute’s global issues program and a non-resident senior fellow in foreign policy at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC
