  • September 20, 2012

Gwen Ifill, host of PBS' Washington Week and senior correspondent for the NewsHour, will field your questions about all things politics in a live chat on Thursday, Sept. 20 at 11 a.m. CST. 

Ifill has covered six presidential campaigns and moderated two vice presidential debates — the 2004 face-off between Vice President Dick Cheney and U.S. Sen. John Edwards, and the 2008 matchup between U.S. Sen. Joe Biden and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. This summer, Ifill co-hosted PBS' coverage of the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions. 

On Sunday, Sept. 23, Ifill will speak about the 2012 presidential election at The Texas Tribune Festival. Joining her will be Hendrik Hertzberg, senior editor and staff writer at The New Yorker; Maggie Haberman, senior political writer for Politico; and Julie Mason, host of Sirius XM's "The Press Pool with Julie Mason." The Tribune's Evan Smith will moderate the discussion.
