Shameless plug – Mason the destination of choice for global leaders


Those of you reading this blog for a while may recall that President Obama kicked off his campaign on campus (in fact, right outside my office – a fact which, I believe, was a major factor in the campaign’s success), and then returned to campus for his first major economic speech as President-Elect. Hard acts to follow, to be sure, but I have to say that the visit by Nobel Laureate and Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, on campus to discuss ways to promote peace in the post-Cold War era was spectacular.
