Richard Clarke has worked for every president since Ronald Reagan and has some firsthand experience in negotiating with declared state enemies, and he thinks negotiating without preconditions may not be such a bad idea. "Talking nation to nation is not a sign of weakness," he says. "In fact, it's a sign of strength." The Former National Security Adviser joins us to talk about the national security decisions facing the next president. Of course, the next president will have to deal with more than just national security. Journalist Michael Pollan would like to see the next president reform our nation's food policy. Pollan says the nation shouldn't subsidize corn and soy -- instead it should subsidize diverse, organic and regionally based food production. In Defense of Food, and the nation, Monday morning at 9 a.m.


Government/Politics, Other, Energy, Ethics/Religion, Terrorism


Richard Clarke, Former U.S. Senior Executive Service Member
Michael Pollan, Author, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto

Michael Pollan will speak at Oberlin College, Tuesday, October 28.
