With Bush Facing Crisis, Former Presidential Advisor to Speak Tomorrow At Philadelphia Bar Association Quarterly Meeting

Apr 04, 2001, 01:00 ET from Philadelphia Bar Association

    PHILADELPHIA, April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- With the Bush Administration now
 facing some of its first real tests of presidential leadership, a former
 presidential advisor who knows about the perils of life inside the White House
 will address the Philadelphia Bar Association tomorrow (Thursday, April 5) at
 a noon luncheon at the Park Hyatt Philadelphia at the Bellevue.  He's Paul
 Begala and his celebrated work as a political analyst, attorney, author,
 professor, and consultant make him one of the most respected political minds
 in the country.
     As Counselor to President Clinton during a time of scandal and political
 unrest that rocked the nation, Begala became the "point man" for the President
 and a trusted bridge to the media.  Later, he played a key role in the Gore
 campaign and the struggle surrounding the subsequent electoral crisis.  At
 MSNBC he is now a political analyst for The News Hour with Brian Williams and
 has co-hosted Equal Time with Oliver North.  He was appeared on numerous
 national news programs including Meet the Press, Larry King Live and This Week
 with Sam and Cokie.
     Begala is currently a professor of government at Georgetown University and
 frequents the lecture circuit.  He has lectured at Oxford University, UCLA and
 the University of Texas.  He has participated in symposia at Harvard,
 Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania.
     A respected author, Begala was a contributing editor for George magazine,
 which he helped to launch with John F. Kennedy, Jr.  He is also the author of
 Is Our Children Learning? -- a fierce look at George W. Bush's leadership of
 Texas.
     But Begala was regaled as a top political strategist long before he joined
 forces with the Clinton administration.  As one half of the legendary campaign
 consulting team of Carville and Begala, he was the spine to many successful
 political campaigns including Governor Robert Casey, Senator Harris Wofford,
 and Senator Dianne Feinstein.  He later ran the Clinton-Gore presidential
 campaign straight to victory when they brought him on as a senior strategist
 in 1992.
