Rove/Dean Call For Civil Tone But Argue Anyway

When Karl Rove and Howard Dean debated on September 11 at DePauw University in Greencastle the two high level political opponents predictably agreed on very little. While that was part of the draw of the event, it highlighted the increasingly-partisan tone of political discourse in the country since the 9/11 terrorist attacks eight years ago. As WFIU’s Daniel Robison reports, both called for a more civil tone in politics, but at times both embodied the very notion they were trying to rise above.

Daniel Robison

Daniel started as WFIU's Assistant News Director in July 2008. He graduated with a B.A. in history in 2007 and earned an M.A. in journalism two years later. Daniel hosts Ask the Mayor weekly and the occasional Noon Edition. He also hosts Morning Edition on Thursdays, sleepily. Daniel's beats include everything News Director Stan Jastrzebski wants him to cover. And it feels strange to type biography of myself in the third person like this. So that's that.
