The lead-up to the U.S. presidential election to be decided on 4 November has already been one of the most watched and scrutinised campaigns in modern political history.
But what does it all mean for Americans, Australians and the global community?
A seminar - ‘The US Presidential Election' - will be presented at The University of Western Australia tomorrow, by eminent political commentator Professor James Lengle, the visiting Fulbright ANU Distinguished Chair in American Political Science
With the U.S. poll less than two months away, Professor Lengle will analyse the candidates and issues to the election that will determine the next leader of the most powerful country in the western world.
Professor Lengle is an Associate Professor at Georgetown University in Washington DC. He has some 30 years' experience in commentating on U.S. elections with national and international electronic and print media.
The seminar will be held at 5.15 pm on Thursday 4 September 2008 at the University's Fox Lecture Theatre, Room G.59, Arts Building.
