George F. Will (Exclusively WSB)

America's foremost political commentator and columnist George F. Will presents penetrating and incisive commentary on the Washington political scene, offering a glimpse into what the future holds for public affairs, public policy and American society.

From Presidents to CEOs to the personal lessons learned along the way, Bob Woodward is candid and straightforward as he shares with audiences the leadership lessons he has learned and observed over the years. Using his vast background, Woodward is able to expertly explore with audiences the successes and failures of Presidents from Nixon to Obama. Presenting case studies in presidential leadership and decision-making, he helps audiences understand where administrations have gone right and wrong in dealing with domestic and international issues and describes what to look for in future leaders. He also explores the price of politics and its impact on leadership, and in particular cites specific examples of how the relationship between the President and Congress impacts the American people. His keen insight on leading while adapting to changing circumstances is thought provoking and relevant to audiences in any industry.

Donald Trump is creating an entirely new American Presidency, breaking most rules and setting a new non-traditional course.  Two-time Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward is now turning to the next president, putting him in context and addressing what is going on behind the scenes and what to expect. 

Woodward speaks to critical questions such as: How did Trump get to the White House? What are his true intentions?  What can be believed? What positions are real?  What information can be trusted and what statements and tweets really reflect where he is going? Can he deliver? Who will support or attempt to thwart him? Who does he really listen to? And what may it all mean? 

No one knows the American presidency as well as Bob Woodward, the Post’s veteran reporter-historian, who has written Number #1 best selling books covering all eight of the last presidents from Nixon to Obama.

No one has uncovered more of the hidden stories from the secret world of presidents, the CIA, the Pentagon and the Supreme Court than Woodward.  Beginning with the coverage of Watergate with Carl Bernstein and their book and movie All the President’s Men (which Time Magazine called “perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history”) to his two best-selling books on Obama he presents an encyclopedia of case studies in presidential leadership, secret decision-making and the hard-nosed politics of Washington.

Only someone with more than four decades of explaining and understanding the American presidency with his signature aggressive but fair and non-partisan reporting can quickly provide a timely portrait of Trump. The new president comes to an office which, as Woodward demonstrates, has an increased and astounding concentration of power.

Addressing these questions, among others: What exactly was Watergate? Why was there a Watergate? Why did it take over two years of revelations before President Nixon Resigned? What are the five main wars of Watergate? What lessons did Republicans understand? What lessons did Republicans miss? Did Democrats understand and miss different lessons? How did Watergate define scandals such as Iran-contra and Whitewater? Is Trump headed into his Watergate? Is Trump equipped or capable of avoiding scandals? Is the power of the presidency, fully mobilized, able to thwart independent/special counsel investigations? What is the likely outcome?
