Topic - Charles R. Kesler
As a city marked by both "power and forgetfulness," the nation's capital is an important place to discuss and honor the U.S. Constitution, according to Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn, marking the college's third annual Constitution Day Celebration on Thursday.
Charles R. Kesler is a nationally renowned professor of politics who has benefited from the tutelage of some great teachers. William F. Buckley is said to have discovered Mr. Kesler at the tender political age of 16, when the teen sent a well-beyond-his-years letter to the flame-spotting editor.
"It seems to me one has to begin by understanding Obama as he understands himself: as a liberal, as a progressive," Mr. Kesler said.
Mr. Kesler has written a serious but accessible study of the thinking underpinning the modern liberal project, starting with the academic career of Woodrow Wilson, through Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson, all the way to President Obama, who is fighting for a second term, the standard-bearer of "liberalism in crisis."
