Hours after each primary and general election, Rutgers’ Eagleton Institute of Politics hosts a great “Morning After” discussion in the beautiful white mansion on the New Brunswick campus that serves as Eagleton’s HQ. If you’ve never been to one, those seats get filled fast by reservation, and the discussion is always meaty for political nerds. This morning’s talk, hosted by Eagleton’s John Weingart, is, I believe, only the second one Eagleton’s ever streamed. Great that they do that, and great that they make embeddable video available just seconds after. Thank you, Eagleton.
Weingart’s guests this morning were Gov. Jim Florio, AP’s Angela Delli Santi, PolitickerNJ’s Matt Arco and Sen. Jennifer Beck. There was a detailed discussion of Bonnie Watson Coleman’s CD12 win and the damaging Linda Greenstein leaked video, the impact of social media on that and other races (and the coming death of campaign mail) and the obligatory suggestion on the panel that blogs suck. Enjoy.
