If I didn’t have two other competing meetings, one which is rather life-or-death, I’d love to on my way to Arlington, Texas, and the University of Texas at Arlington, right now.
Tickets are free to hear Doris Kearns Goodwin, the eminent historian, lively lecturer, and author late of Team of Rivals, which must surely be one of the more enlightening and surprising biographies of Abraham Lincoln.
When the senator from the Land of Lincoln, Barack Obama meets with John McCain to smoke the peace pipe, and seems to be on the verge of inviting his chief rival, Hillary Clinton, into his cabinet, Goodwin’s lecture cannot be more timely.
And, probably, fun.
DR. DORIS KEARNS GOODWIN
