 The focus of this course will be to examine the interaction between federal institutions, Capitol Hill, The White House, Governors of the 50 states, non-governmental stakeholders and the public. We will discuss the tensions between how the American Government is supposed to work in theory and in practice. Our discussions will also help to define the roles of the numerous players on the national stage in terms of areas of influence with an emphasis on examples of collaboration and conflict. Our examination will be occurring against the backdrop of a national election that will determine who leads the national government as we confront an existential crisis.
