|Classes Without Quizzes: Parsing the Presidential Race
1 - 2 - 3
“I think we deserve a little more than what we’re getting,” Lieberman
said during the annual Classes Without Quizzes, which
also included Nate Persily, an election expert and former Penn
Law professor, and Charles Hill, L’60, a diplomat in the Reagan
administration and Yale professor.
Persily underscored Lieberman’s point by appearing to give
the early edge to front-runners Hillary Clinton and Rudy Guiliani.
Persily said Clinton is benefiting from strong party organization
in many states, but does not stand to gain much new
support because a percentage of voters do not like her and are
unlikely to change their minds. On the Republican side, Persily
dismissed talk that Guiliani is too liberal for the party’s base.
“He is liked by Christian evangelicals” more than most of the
other candidates, he said.
