-- November 07, 2012

Kaplan University in cooperation with Newt Gingrich's Newt University, James
Carville, and Doug Schoen are pleased to present an educational discussion
around today’s post-national election results over the KAPx online
instructional platform.

This interactive online discussion will feature former Speaker of the House
Newt Gingrich, political commentator and media personality James Carville,
Jr., and pollster Doug Schoen. Gingrich was a candidate for the 2012
Republican Party presidential nomination. A prominent figure in the Democratic
Party, Carville was the lead strategist for former President Bill Clinton’s
first national election. Schoen is a noted Democratic pollster and regular
political news analyst. Moderating the panel discussion will be Kaplan
University’s Dr. Peter Smith, who is the former Assistant Director of UNESCO
and also served as a Representative in Congress from Vermont after a term as
the State’s Lieutenant Governor.

The two-hour interactive, online discussion at 2-4 p.m. (ET), follows a
similar session held yesterday (November 6) on Election Day. The first day’s
program included Newt Gingrich and Howard Dean, the former Governor of Vermont
and former Democratic National Committee chairman, who ran for the 2004
Democratic Presidential nomination.

Today’s discussion will analyze voting results and seek to present a better
understanding of the dynamics behind the national election process.
