Spring 2021 Schedule / MEMORABLE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
Coordinators: Ellen Gottfried, Bob Gottfried
Most people think that Congress in 2020, although more diverse than ever before, is dysfunctional and too prone to partisan politics. Although members do not resort to fistfights or duels as in years past, there is no one able to rise above the mediocre mass and lead a bipartisan Congress which resolves the crucial issues facing the country. This was not true in the past, and this course will be about Congressional leaders who have changed, and may change in the future, the course of America’s history.
