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.
