"There are political junkies, and then there's Charlie Cook — the man who knows more about everything political than anyone else.” 
- The Washingtonian
Charlie Cook - political analyst for National Journal magazine, editor and publisher of the Cook Political Report, and member of The Harkin Institute National Advisory Council - returned to Des Moines Wednesday, November 30.
Cook, who is widely regarded as one of the most astute impartial analysts of the Washington political scene, provided entertaining political analysis, insights, and stories about the 2016 presidential race. In the most unique event of the post-election season, Cook spoke to a standing-room-only Sussman Theater for the third year in a row!
