Alumni, friends, and guests gathered to hear Senators Tom Daschle and Byron Dorgan discuss the fundamentals of American Government, and explore the reasons for deadlock in the legislative branch. Moderated by Associated Press' Political Editor, Liz Sidoti, the Senators carefully examined and explained how the Senate operates, and current challenges to progress including immigration and gun control. This insider's perspective of the U.S. Senate gave great context to today's current political challenges.
