The President's Council Fall Dinner featured a distinguished panel discussing the topic of "Faith and America": Jon Meacham, the Editor of Newsweek; Peggy Noonan, columnist for The Wall Street Journal; and Sally Quinn, journalist and author who, with Mr. Meacham, co-hosts the Washington Post's blog, On Faith. Members of the President's Council and guests were treated to a lively discussion exploring the relationship between faith and government in America from the nation's founding to the present day, with each panelist offering special insight on the 2008 U. S. presidential election. The event began with cocktails and the program in the South Court Auditorium, followed by an intimate dinner in Astor Hall.
