Rarely has a
presidential race been so hard to call, said David Gergen ’67, during a talk on
Oct. 26 at Harvard Law School Fall Reunions. A former adviser to four
presidents, a regular contributor to CNN and a professor at the Harvard Kennedy
School, Gergen put the race between fellow HLS graduates Mitt Romney ’75 and
President Barack Obama ’91 in historical perspective, analyzed its development,
talked about its import—and made some predictions.
