In 1997, Madeleine Albright became the first female Secretary of State in our country's history. During her tenure, she focused much of her attention on the Middle East and the former Yugoslavia. Now, as the founder and principal of The Albright Group LLC, Albright consults on international commerce issues. Recently, she has offered her advice to the next president — in her newest book, recently released in paperback, and during a CNN special. (NB: During the Democratic primaries, Albright supported Sen. Hillary Clinton. Now she is an adviser to the campaign of Clinton's one-time rival, Sen. Barack Obama.)
Our occasional series, called "This American Moment," continues today. Albright will join us from New York, to tell us what the upcoming election means to her. We also want to hear from you. Step back from all the partisanship, and tell us what this American moment means to you.
