The Japan Election and Consequences: Bob Schieffer, Kurt Campbell, Michael Green & Steve Clemons

-


I really enjoyed participating in this Schieffer series panel discussion titled “Understanding Japan’s Elections: What the Elections Mean for Asia and the United States” moderated by CBS News Chief Washington Correspondent Bob Schieffer.
The panel featured Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Kurt Campbell and CSIS Senior Adviser and Japan Chair Michael Green and myself. Mike Green also previously served during the Bush administration as Senior Director for Asian Affairs at the National Security Council.
The meeting was organized in a monthly series of dialogues sponsored by the TCU Schieffer School of Journalism and the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
I think you’ll find the discussion interesting.

    I haven’t watched the video yet (plan to soon), but I want to
    compliment whoever put “What the Elections Mean for Asia and the
    United States” in the title of the forum.
    For many years, the movers and shakers in Washington, and
    opinion leaders in the US in general, have assumed that Japan only
    has significance in its relationship to the US, that its only reason
    for existence is apparently to be an small appendage to mighty
    Uncle Sam. At least in this case, someone thought to put “Asia”
    before the “United States.”
    Of course, the question of what the Japanese elections mean for
    Japan itself is also an important one, but I guess that’s too esoteric
    a subject for most Americans.

    Steve,
    THANKS for posting this. This was the best forum on the Japanese elections I have heard, and I’ve been tuned in.
    You, in particular, were superb, but so too were Mr. Michael Green and Assistant Secretary Campbell.
    You should do this kind of thing more often!
