A "No Labels" party is gaining traction for the next Presidential election and Dr. Marc Clauson will help us unpack how this "unity ticket" may impact the status quo. The polls are revealing that a majority of people are not wanting a repeat of the last election, so what would a bipartisan ticket mean for getting things done in our country? Marc is a Professor of History and Law at Cedarville University and will lead us in thinking critically and biblically as we read the headlines.
