Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.), a member of the U.S. Senate since 1962, will appear at the Brookings Institution Monday to deliver a speech on U.S. domestic policy. His address will critique the Bush administration's performance on health care, education, and the economy.
Kennedy—the senior Democrat on the Senate's Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee and a member of the Joint Economic Committee—will be introduced by Brookings Senior Fellow Thomas E. Mann. Kennedy will take questions from the audience following his remarks.
The Brookings Leadership Forum provides high-level government officials from around the world the opportunity to address members of the Washington policy community and to share their insights and perspectives on world events as well as on issues of particular concern to their countries.
