Those still suffering from 2004 election heartbreak are escaping reality by fantasizing about Americas future presidential candidates. Progressive advocates are yearning for a woman in the Oval Office. Will it be Hillary, or Condi? Whoever lands commander in chief should seek counsel from strong-minded, savvy ex-officials who know a thing or two about weathering political storms. Few political figures fit that bill better than Madeleine Albright.
The best-selling author and former ambassador to the United Nations became the first female secretary of state in President Clintons administration. Albright is respected for her forward-thinking views. Her latest book, The Mighty and the Almighty: Reflections on America, God, and World Affairs, tackles complex topics such as church, state, and the Christian right with intelligent aplomb. Tonight at 8:30 at Coral Gables Congregational Church, Albright will share insight on the role of religion in the current state of governmental issues. Free tickets are required for admission and are available at any Books & Books store. Call 305-442-4408, or visit www.booksandbooks.com.
