On May 22, 2007, George Stephanopoulos kicked off the much-anticipated Alexander Capelluto Memorial Lecture Series to a packed auditorium of over 500 students and faculty. During the hour-long assembly, Stephanopoulos reminisced about his path to becoming one of President Clinton’s top aides and his transition to news anchor and professor. Stephanopoulos then fielded questions that ranged from the impact of the Internet on today’s politics to his views on the war in Iraq to his predictions for the 2008 Presidential race.
Stephanopoulos’ candor impressed the students, and the admiration was not one-sided. After the lecture wrapped, Stephanopoulos remarked upon the high-level quality of the questions he received from the students and commented on how much he enjoyed himself at Horace Mann.
