“The Right Path: The Future of the Republican Party”
Joe Scarborough – former Republican congressman and the host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe – and co-host Mika Brzezinski share a nuanced and surprising examination of the unexpected rise and what Scarborough describes as the “self-inflicted fall of the Republican Party.”
On the heels of the release of his book, The Right Path, Scarborough and Brzezinski join Vanderbilt Distinguished Visiting Professor Jon Meacham and Chancellor Nicholas Zeppos for a conversation that looks back to a time when Republicans once dominated American public life. Reflecting on the conservative but pragmatic leadership of Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, Scarborough and Brzezinski will present an illuminating analysis of conservatism and the way forward for the Grand Old Party.
