"They may not reach the vitriol of Biden versus Cheney, but the 1,700 folks in the crowd responded with cheering, jeering and a few pointed questions ... DePauw University, Penn State and Portland also have hosted debates by the pair."

The story includes a link to this summary of the September 11, 2009 Rove-Dean debate at DePauw, which was presented by the Timothy and Sharon Ubben Lecture Series. About 2,000 attended the DePauw event.

Previous guests have included Benazir Bhutto, Mikhail Gorbachev, Tony Blair, Spike Lee, Elie Wiesel, Margaret Thatcher and, most recently, SuperFreakonomics co-author Steven D. Levitt.
