An African-American candidate is running against the oldest candidate ever (and his running mate is a woman). It seems that–finally–anyone can be president. But can they? Harper’s Magazine Publisher and noted political commentator John R. MacArthur will discuss his new book You Can’t Be President: The Outrageous Barriers to Democracy in America with esteemed historian Eric Foner (read an excerpt from the book). A live screening of the second presidential debate will follow.

"It is an interesting and somewhat macabre parlor game to play at a large gathering of one’s acquaintances: to speculate who in a showdown would go Nazi. By now, I think I know. I have gone through the experience many times—in Germany, in Austria, and in France. I have come to know the types: the born Nazis, the Nazis whom democracy itself has created, the certain-to-be fellow-travelers. And I also know those who never, under any conceivable circumstances, would become Nazis."
