About the Program
Samuel Popkin, former campaign consultant to Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George McGovern, and Al Gore, presents his thoughts on what constitutes a successful presidential campaign. Mr. Popkin argues that the campaigns of George H.W. Bush in 1992, Al Gore in 2000, and Hilary Clinton in 2008 are examples of mismanaged candidacies and explains why the same mistakes are often repeated. Samuel Popkin speaks at the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum in Atlanta.

He served as a campaign consultant to Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George McGovern, and Al Gore. Mr. Popkin is a political science professor at the University of California, San Diego.
