Another Attempt to Unite: Reagan Library Hosts Bipartisan Summit

Last night at the Hollywood Roosevelt, as Jimmy Kimmel tied traffic in knots with an outdoor staging of his show, and hipsters streamed into the clubbier aspects of the hotel, several dozen well-suited political figures and others mingled with cocktails by the pool. Among them were former Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.).

The event was a kickoff for the Bipartisan Policy Center’s “national conversation on the state of American unity,” an effort to bridge the political divide via a forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley today. The event, which starts at 10 a.m. PT, is being webcast on the org’s website, and viewers can submit questions and vote in a poll. The venue is perhaps fitting, as some of the politicos who gathered at the Hollywood Roosevelt were nostalgic for the relative cooperation of the Reagan years.

Dan Glickman, the former MPAA chairman and senior fellow at the Bipartisan Policy Center, is one of the leaders behind the effort.
