TITLE > The Issues Politicians Are Afraid to Talk About
Providing the savvy analysis of a campaign insider, political commentator Bay Buchanan—U.S. Treasurer under Reagan and campaign chair for brother Pat —has provided fascinating insights into government power. In this presentation Buchanan points her critical eye at the controversial topics that politicians are sometimes reluctant to talk about. With her trademark candor and the wisdom of a seasoned campaign strategist, she offers advice on how our country needs "real leaders to say unpopular things" and asserts that the schema of leadership should be "speaking what you believe, no matter the direction you take."
