The LBJ School of Public Affairs will host Mark Halperin, Editor-at-Large and Senior Political Analyst at Time Magazine. Halperin will engage in a discussion with students and faculty from across campus on the current political landscape. The event will be held on Tuesday, September 18, 2007, 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. in the LBJ Student Lounge.

Mark Halperin was named editor-at-large and senior political analyst for TIME in April 2007.

Prior to joining TIME, Halperin worked at ABC News for nearly 20 years, where he covered five presidential elections and served as political director from November 1997 to April 2007. In that role, he was responsible for political reporting and planning for the network's television, radio and Internet political coverage. He also appeared regularly on ABC News TV and radio as a correspondent and analyst, contributing commentary and reporting during election night coverage, presidential inaugurations and State of the Union speeches.

At ABC, Halperin reported on every major American political story, including working as a full-time reporter covering the Clinton presidential campaign in 1992 and the Clinton White House. He also covered major non-political stories, such as the O.J. Simpson criminal trial and the Oklahoma City bombing.

Additionally, Halperin founded and edited the online publication The Note on abcnews.com, which has been characterized as the most influential daily tipsheet in American politics by publications including The New Yorker, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Vanity Fair.

He remains a political analyst for ABC News, and is the co-author of The Way to Win: Taking the White House in 2008 (Random House, 2006).

Halperin received his B.A. from Harvard University and resides in New York City with Karen Avrich.
