A Great American Commentator - David Gergen

David Gergen is my favorite American political commentator.  He was born in Durham NC.  His father was Mathematics Department Chair at Duke.  Gergen earned his Bachelor's Degree at Yale, and his Law Degree at Harvard. He holds 24 Honorary Degrees.

Gergen has served and advised five American Presidents.  He is presently Director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard and Professor at Harvard Kennedy School of Government.  He is a member of the D.C. Bar, on the U.S. Executive Committee of the Trilateral Commission, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.  He is Chairman of the Board of Advisers for the Elon University Law School located in Greensboro.

When I listen to David Gergen, I am extremely confident of wise, informed, fair, and balanced commentary.  I am pleased to have met him in Charlotte at the Democratic National Convention this summer as he was participating on a panel following the release of Elon University Poll results.  He is a perfect player and a perfect fit for this era of 24-hours news saturation and social media in which we live.
