Created by New York City adman Ellis Verdi, “Selling a President 2020” is a weekly gathering of advertising’s most creative minds– including Linda Kaplan Thaler, Lee Garfinkel and Greg Hahn, chief creative officer at BBDO – to take a critical look and a jaundiced eye at how the presidential candidates are selling themselves as part of their advertising assault on the American electorate. Also joining Ellis will be former NY Times ad columnist Stuart Elliott, as well as political pundits.
