Referenced and recommended several times by Garry Shandling on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, The Next President: A World of Challenges, on CNN a couple of weeks ago, was an hour special featuring a discussion with five former Secretaries of State, hosted by fellow Maher-guest Christiane Amanpour and correspondent Frank Sesno. The topic was the global situation facing the next President; Henry Kissinger, James Baker, Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell and Warren Christopher shared the stage to share their wisdom and experience with us all.
In case you missed it -- as I did -- you can watch Part One by clicking here, and watch Part Two by clicking here. Take the time to catch up with this extremely important special which evidently found all the honored guests agreeing on the course of action that must be followed by the new President. Guess which candidate has a plan that comes closest to their advice? It's not the so-called Maverick, that's for sure.
Foreign policy is an area in which we all need to become better informed, and this serious hour will help us get there. Thanks, CNN! And thanks to Garry Shandling for mentioning this on Maher's show!
