Gov. Alexander’s Early Swearing In: Was it the Right Thing To Do?by Ann Marie Deer Owens Apr. 10, 2012, 2:43 PM
Watch video of the panel discussion with U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander about his early swearing-in as Tennessee’s 45th governor. The event was hosted by Vanderbilt University’s Heard Libraries and Law School on April 9.
The panel was part of special programming scheduled in conjunction with the exhibit “Come on along: Lamar Alexander’s Journey as Governor,” an exhibit drawn from the prized pre-Senate papers that Alexander and his wife, Honey Alexander, recently donated to the university.
Joining Alexander was former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson, Tennessee Supreme Court Justice William Koch, former U.S. Attorney Hal Hardin and Tennessee Attorney General Robert Cooper. John Seigenthaler, founder of the First Amendment Center, served as moderator.
