Stephanopoulos to Speak in Little Rock

DECEMBER 11, 2006 - Posted at 7:37 a.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Central Arkansas residents will get a chance to hear some of the straight skinny from Washington when George Stephanopoulos speaks today at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock.

Stephanopoulos is familiar with Little Rock, as he visited several times during both of Bill Clinton's campaigns for the presidency. He was a key campaign strategist for Clinton, and is the author of a book titled ``All Too Human,'' about Clinton's first term in office and his two campaigns.

Now, Stephanopoulos is chief Washington correspondent for ABC News, and the anchor of the network's program ``This Week.''

He is due to begin his remarks at 12:30 this afternoon in the Wally Allen Ballroom at the convention center. His program is part of the lecture series at the Clinton School of Public Service.
