Is US Senate in Future of Discourse Speaker Robert F. Kennedy Jr.?
September 16, 2007
September 16, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - "The 2008 presidential election is more than a year away and Hillary Clinton's victory is hardly a lock -- but that isn't stopping ambitious New York Democrats from angling for her Senate seat," reports the New York Daily News. Among the list of potential candidates, reports the newspaper, "might be prominent environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who, a party insider noted, possesses a 'magic, magic, magic name' in politics." Kennedy will visit DePauw University October 6 to keynote DePauw Discourse 2007: Sustainability and Global Citizenship.
The Daily News' Celeste Katz writes, "By law, it would fall to Gov. Spitzer to choose Clinton's successor if she leaves before her term is up. He swears he hasn't 'thought even one second about what happens' under that scenario. He may be the only one."

DePauw Discourse, with events over three days (October 4-6), will provide members of the University community with opportunities to engage in thought-provoking discussion about pressing global environmental challenges. Other speakers will include Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature; Cristina Mittermeier, photographer, writer, and executive director of the International League of Conservation Photographers; and Wallace J. Nichols, senior researcher at the Ocean Conservancy and 1989 graduate of DePauw.Back
