Washington Examiner senior political analyst lectures

Conservative Intellectual Tradition features Michael Barone


Political analyst Michael Barone will deliver the fourth lecture in the Conservative Intellectual Tradition seminar, a cutting-edge new course being offered at The Citadel this spring to explore the evolution of the conservative movement.

The seminar, which is led the John C. West Professor of International Politics and American Government Mallory Factor, brings in national leaders each week, including  former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, and former Reagan economic advisor Arthur Laffer.

“As a political writer, a lawyer and a historian, Michael Barone will make a great contribution to the seminar,” said Factor.  “His lecture will investigate tensions inherent in the American identity and the threat of social dislocation.”

Michael Barone is senior political analyst for the Washington Examiner.  A resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, he is also a Fox News Channel contributor and co-author of The Almanac of American Politics. His column is published Wednesdays and Sundays, and he blogs regularly for the Examiner's Beltway Confidential site.

Conservative Intellectual Tradition is a survey of the political tradition of modern conservatism in the United States with some consideration of its roots in the broader Western political tradition, and specific attention given to the development of the tradition in the 20th and 21st centuries.
