She has written four books, co-authored two and has appeared as herself in three movies and several documentaries and television series. MESSAGE FROM UNITED STATES SENATOR MICHAEL D. BROWN Eleanor Clift and I will discuss the results of the General Election, which seem to be more of a &quot;red ripple&quot; than a &quot;red wave.&quot; What will this mean for the Biden administration and, more importantly, what will it mean for the District which is subject to the control of Congress? I look forward to hearing Eleanor&apos;s insights on politics in America, the divide in public opinion and what she sees going forward with our economy and for our community. You are invited to tune into, and participate in, our post-election conversation as we discuss where America is now headed after the midterms.
