Harold Ford, Jr. & Michael Steele

Looking ahead, Harold Ford, Jr. and Michael Steele explore the most critical issues facing America in the 21st Century. Together they confront key concerns facing every American: stability in the Middle East, domestic security, energy policy, healthcare and education reform, military transformation and the economy. As prominent leaders representing both sides of the political spectrum, Ford and Steele will engage your audience in a passionate discussion of hot-button issues that will shape our nation’s future. At the podium, Ford and Steele discuss diversifying America’s energy sources; overhauling U.S. healthcare and education systems; re-establishing our moral authority through diplomacy; strengthening America’s international reputation; resurrecting our economic health and integrity; modernizing our military assets and strategy; managing sustainable levels of government spending and establishing entitlement, regulatory and tax reform. Harold Ford, Jr. served Tennessee in the U.S. House of Representatives for 10 years. Described by President Clinton as the “walking, living embodiment of where America ought to go in the 21st century,” he is passionate about free enterprise and balanced budgets. Ford is now the Chairman of the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) and a political analyst for MSNBC. Ford’s agenda for the party includes growing America’s economy, strengthening our moral standing in the world, ridding our dependence on oil, and modernizing our military to protect us from Democracy’s enemies. Michael Steele earned his place in Maryland’s history when he became the first AfricanAmerican to be elected to statewide office. Steele’s first major national exposure came during an appearance at the 2004 Republican National Convention. Previously the Chairman of GOPAC, he is currently the Chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) and is a regular analyst on FOX News. As a self-described Lincoln Republican, Steele’s mission is to steer the party back to its core values of small government, strong national defense and an end to pork barrel spending.
