Better than Serafin's Christmas Party tonight at Butch Mcguire's: Berkowitz w/ a then charming Obama, Cable & Web

Tonight’s Chicago metro suburban  edition of Public Affairs (See airing schedule, below) features Barack Obama, who was quite a charmer in July, 2000, when he was interviewed  by show host Jeff Berkowitz.  Discussion includes a real, thoughtful dialogue about, among other public policy issues, the role of church based organizations in assisting low income people, the role of school vouchers and charter schools in providing competitive alternatives to kids of low income parents stuck in non-performing traditional neighborhood schools and the impact of community organizing in low income neighborhoods.
