The episode will feature honorary co-chairs Tom Daschle, former U.S senator from South Dakota and former Senate majority leader, and Trent Lott, who represented Mississippi in the U.S. Senate and also served as Senate majority leader.

The January event will be facilitated by board member Ian Ralby, CEO of I.R. Consilium and direct descendant of statesman Henry Clay. It will be hosted by Henry Clay Center alumna Lindsey Constantino.

Founded in 2007, the Henry Clay Center for Statesmanship is a bipartisan nonprofit organization that works with current and future leaders to honestly, critically and intelligently reflect on matters of national significance; debate the merits of those issues; and ultimately find the strength of character needed to arrive at a compromise and solve the problems that hinder America’s process of continual improvement for all Americans.
