Spencer Freedman with Mark Gearan, the newly-appointed director of the Institute of Politics at the Kennedy School of Government. Spencer has a strong interest in politics and, specifically, leadership. We could not think of a more perfect VIP than Mark, who served as White House Director of Communications in the Bill Clinton Administration, and later as the President of Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Spencer and Mark spoke about several campaigns for this election season, and Mark’s experiences in the White House.
