At the upcoming meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association in Chicago, there will be a great roundtable on the election.  It will include not only Wonkblog’s Ezra Klein and 538’s Nate Silver, but a stellar line-up of political scientists:

I’ll be moderating the discussion.

The panel is scheduled for Saturday, April 13, at 4:35 pm in the Palmer House Hilton.  Please come!

Is this a round table on the 2012 race broadly, or is it focused on the Presidential race with minimal discussion of House, Senate, and State Legislative races and outcomes too?

It will depend on what people want to talk about. I expect a decent bit of discussion of the presidential race, but I think any discussion of the implications of 2012 for politics and governance will deal with down-ballot races as well.

Drew Linzer realy deserves more credit–he not only got all 50 states right, but predicted Florida would go for Obama before Silver did…

Any chance there will be a webcast?

Or if not a webcast, that it will be recorded and then put on YouTube? I’m sure there are many people who would love to see this panel but who won’t be able to attend in person.

+1. John, can this be done? Really….please!

I know it’s being audio-taped (though not for livestream). I’ll inquire as to whether video is possible.

I attended this session and I noticed a video camera in the room. So, I presume the video will(is?) posted somewhere?
