Bipartisanship in a Time of Divided Government

Moderated by C-SPAN’s Steve Scully & Sponsored by The Bipartisan Policy Center


The Simpson-Mineta Leaders Series is founded in the spirit of the lifelong friendship of two extraordinary leaders from opposite sides of the aisle.  Norman Y. Mineta and Alan K. Simpson met during World War II when Simpson’s Boy Scout troop met with Mineta’s in the Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming where Secretary Mineta’s family was then interned with over 10,000 other Japanese-Americans.  Despite their differences, both their friendship and their commitment to leadership and public service endured.


The Simpson-Mineta Leaders Series aims to create a forum in which students from around the country and the world can engage with extraordinary leaders, explore issues of contemporary public concern, and articulate their own views about the meaning of leadership and citizenship in today’s society.


Steve Scully is C-SPAN’s Senior Executive Producer and Political Editor.  Scully is also a member of the Associate Faculty at The Washington Center, where he teaches the “Road to the White House”.


The dress code is business professional. The event format will focus on questions and discussion with the guests. Research on relevant issues at the C-SPAN Video Library is encouraged.
