America's next president...
what it means for us

Barrie Cassidy's Insiders program on ABC TV is one of Australia's most influential and respected political forums.

Voted as one of the "must-see" events of the 2007 Festival, Insiders returns with a special focus on the 2008 USA Presidential elections.

Barrie Cassidy is joined by a stellar panel of analysts including Stephen Loosley, former Senator and Chairman of the Australian Parliament's Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs; journalist and author Paul Kelly of The Australian; US-born Bruce Wolpe, head of corporate affairs with the Fairfax organisation; and Dennis Atkins journalist with The Courier-Mail.

Just back from the Australia-US Leadership Dialogue in Washington DC, Barrie will lead the panel as it dissects the likely outcome of the fiercely fought US Presidential election and its global implications. Some of the more interesting moments from the primaries will be screened.

Monday 7 10.00am $35 The J
Duration: approximately 2 hours.
