The Presidential Election of 2008 is shaping up to be a highly important moment
for the United States and for international affairs. With major developments in
the fortunes of candidates for both parties after the caucus in Iowa and the
primary in New Hampshire, critical votes are days and weeks ahead
(‘Giga-Tuesday’ on 5 February) that could very well determine who will be the
two final candidates that will compete to become the next president of the
United States.
Roundtable Guests include:

Mr. Mark Wenig, United States Consulate in Leipzig
Prof. Ben Alpers, Fulbright-Leipzig Chair

issues, factors, and personalities involved in this presidential primary
