Email share


There’s no question the economy will be the biggest issue for Americans as we approach the November presidential election.  People will vote for President Barack Obama or Republican challenger Mitt Romney based on the performance the last four years and especially the weeks leading up to November 6.  Joining us in-studio this week to talk about this and who may fare better handling it is the former Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, Robert Reich.  Currently the Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at UC-Berkeley, Reich is a regular on the cable news networks.  He was in the Albany area to give the commencement address at Excelsior College.  In this preview clip, he talks about Romney’s ability to run on the fact that he was a successful businessman and thus being better suited to run the economy.  Watch the full interview this weekend on New York NOW.
