Every quadrennial race for the White House has fascinating dynamics and this one continues to exhibit new twists almost every day. On Sept. 20, I will be joining with my Los Angeles Times colleagues, Politics Now writer James Rainey and Nick Goldberg, editor of the editorial page, for an in-depth discussion of Campaign 2012. Our exchange will take place before an audience at noon in the Times’ historic Globe Lobby as part of the "Thursdays at the Globe" series.
