The George W. Bush Institute is launching a new medium for politicians to get involved.
Former Sens. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., and Joseph I. Lieberman, I-Conn., are contributing writers in the inaugural edition of The Catalyst: A Journal of Ideas from the Bush Institute, which will be compiled of essays surrounding a new theme in every edition. The first edition’s topic is leadership and Kyl and Lieberman’s piece is on American internationalism.
The Catalyst, a free, digital publication, is non-partisan and launches on Jan. 20 at an event at the Newseum. Kyl and Lieberman are participating in a panel that night as well.
Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, who is running against former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland in a potentially tight race this year, plans on swinging by the Newseum to hang out with his former colleagues and be part of a panel discussion.
Other contributors include former Education Secretary Margaret Spellings and businessman/Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
