TODAY @YaleLive: Obama and America’s next four years

The 2012 elections are over and President Barack Obama and other U.S. political leaders of both parties have quickly refocused their attention on the economy, taxes, immigration, and a host of other pressing national affairs.

In a special episode of @YaleLive, three Yale scholars — Jacob Hacker, Beverly Gage, and David Bach — assess the issues they expect to be front and center in Obama’s second term.

Viewers may submit questions before and during the Nov. 15 live video conversation via Yale’s Facebook page, Twitter@Yale or socialmedia@yale.edu.

@YaleLive is a live video interview series offering people worldwide an opportunity to engage with Yale scholars.
