On the first episode of The War Room with Jennifer Granholm, I'll take you inside Barack Obama's campaign war room in Chicago. Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs will also join me to discuss Obama's re-election strategy and I'll have a chance to speak with Elizabeth Warren. Tune in on Monday at 9/8c on Current! http://current.com/shows/the-war-room/blog/coming-soon-next-week-on-the-war-room

+Mike Bauer I find it appalling for the do-as-I-say etc routine they put on. But while Granholm is very engaging face to face, as I'm sure many of our government employees are, I liken them to the terrible habit I had of always falling for performers. They are anything the situation calls for, but they're hollowed out inside.

The bottom line is that policy matters. California is another example of that. If the right national policy is in place, then jobs will be created across the country.

Had such a great conversation with Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick on +The War Room with Jennifer Granholm last night -- glad he debunked the claims about death panels, doctor choices, and job losses in his state.
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick joins Jennifer Granholm in 'The War Room' to address rumors about the health care law Mitt Romney pushed through as governor of that state.

You'd think separating fact from fiction would be easier these days. The health care affordability issue is not going away. Illuminating piece.

+Dan Mulhern and I weigh in on the global race for jobs in this week's Newsweek. Here is the tragedy: by insisting on a small-government, tax-cut-only solution to produce jobs, we are living by an outdated map of the economic world. Indeed, we may be accelerating the job losses as our competitors take advantage of our passivity.

Jill, I actually wrote this blog post when Jennifer was still governor so it has nothing to do with Snyder. I just wanted the Governor to read what I had written about Meatless Mondays. I saw a sign at the Paul McCartney concert last night at Comerica Park promoting Meatless Mondays.

Story

Former Governor of Michigan, Host of Current TV's "The War Room with Jennifer Granholm"
Introduction

Governor Jennifer M. Granholm is a former attorney general and two-term governor of Michigan, a distinguished professor of law and public policy at UC Berkeley, a co-author of The Washington Post bestselling political book, A Governor’s Story: The Fight for Jobs and America’s Economic Future, and one of the nation’s leading authorities on clean energy policy.

Granholm was elected governor of Michigan in 2002, and in 2006, she was re-elected with the largest number of votes ever cast for governor in Michigan. As governor, Granholm led the state through a brutal economic downturn that resulted from a meltdown in the automotive and manufacturing sectors. She worked relentlessly to diversify the state’s economy, strengthen its auto industry, preserve the advanced manufacturing sector, and add new, emerging sectors, such as clean energy, to Michigan’s economic portfolio. Today, Granholm advocates for a national commitment to advanced manufacturing, worker training, and clean energy. 

After leaving office, Granholm hosted Current TV’s national political analysis show “The War Room with Jennifer Granholm” and co-authored the Washington Post political bestseller, A Governor’s Story: The Fight for Jobs and America’s Economic Future.  In addition to teaching courses in law and public policy at UC Berkeley, she also serves as the chair of Granholm Mulhern Associates. 

Granholm is an honors graduate of both the University of California at Berkeley and Harvard Law School. She and her husband have three children.
