This week’s suburban edition of "Public Affairs with Jeff Berkowitz," features Jennifer Granholm, Democratic Governor of Michigan from 2002 to 2010. The show with the outspoken, articulate, attractive, good-natured and Harvard Law School trained nationally influential Democrat airs tonight on Comcast in 24 north and northwest Chicago Metro suburbs and on Wed-Friday of this week in 10 additional north shore suburbs, as spelled out in more detail, below.
Granholm was once the subject of a debate between Gov. Schwartzenegger and Gov. Blagojevich at a Governors’ Association meeting as to which party had the most attractive female Governor: Republicans with their most likely nominee Sarah Palin or Democrats with their most likely nominee Jennifer Granholm. As Blagojevich is looking at a 12 year plus prison sentence from federal Judge James Zagel next week for Blago’s multi-count public corruption conviction this past summer, we have it on good authority that Rod is comforted by his belief that this was one debate topic he won for his Party in the last few years. Indeed, Rod is hoping for an invite to appear as a guest on Granholm's upcoming new TV show on the Current TV network (See, below).
The Canadian born, Californian raised Granholm was making a tour of the United States in late October promoting her book on creating jobs when she taped this “no holds barred” interview with show host Berkowitz at the Union League Club of Chicago. Granholm was also promoting her own show, “The War Room (focusing on the 2012 Presidential Election),” which she will host and which will follow the show of the former MSNBC star, Keith Olbermann, on the new Al Gore-Joel Hyatt owned Current TV network, starting in early January, 2012.
As a warm up for her hosting efforts, Granholm goes toe- to- toe with Berkowitz, as the two debate cutting taxes, competing with China, creating school vouchers and school choice, occupying Wall St. and much, much more. You can also watch the Granholm-Berkowitz debate on your computer here. Next week’s suburban edition of “Public Affairs,” features guest Laura Washington, Chicago Sun-Times columnist and ABC-7 political analyst, debating the political issues of the day with show host Jeff Berkowitz. The Berkowitz-Washington show will be posted herefor viewing on your computer in the next few days. Topics discussed include, among others, race and racism; radical education reform for African-Americans and Hispanics with low income parents; how Obama could have been a transformative President; the performance of Mayor Emanuel and the high-tech lynchings of Clarence Thomas and Herman Cain.
