During a recent visit to campus, U.S. Senator and Senate Majority Leader George J. Mitchell ’54 (D-ME) sat down with Bowdoin’s Director of News and Media Relations, Doug Cook, to discuss the current state of Congress, what it takes to make real progress in government, and how the lessons of peacemaking in Northern Ireland and diplomacy in the Middle East can help break ideological gridlock in Washington.
