The Colorado Springs World Affairs Council’s 5th Annual “State of the World” Discussion
America & the World in a New Election Year
Back by popular demand and fresh from accompanying Vice President Biden to Davos …
Three years ago, Steve Clemons gave us a riveting “look ahead” at President Obama’s second term, then with a new foreign and national security policy team. Three years later, the world seems to be in a much more volatile state, and the American body politic appears to be immobilized by political polarization, social conflict, and economic malaise. What happens in America doesn’t stay in America—our domestic issues have foreign policy repercussions.

He is also a senior fellow and the founder of the American Strategy Program at the New America Foundation, a centrist think tank in Washington, D.C., where he previously served as executive vice president.
