GUESTS: NORMAN PODHORETZ Author of My Love Affair with America (Free Press, 2000) LEE HAMILTON Director, Woodrow Wilson Center, Washington, DC Former Democratic Congressman from Indiana and Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee DAVID LASKIN Author of Partisans: Marriage, Politics and Betrayal Among the New York Intellectuals (Simon & Schuster, 2000) Once upon a time, political leaders often sought the advice of philosophers and intellectuals. But today the thinking man or woman is faced with an increasingly non-ideological political culture. Intellectuals still may have something to say, but it's not clear who's listening — particularly in the nation's capital. Join Juan Williams and guests for a discussion about intellectuals and the role they play in American society today.
