Peter Robinson, the Hoover Institution’s Murdoch Distinguished Policy Fellow and host of Uncommon Knowledge (and a former Reagan White House speechwriter), joins Hoover senior fellows Niall Ferguson, H. R. McMaster and John Cochrane to discuss the GOP’s brand, their shared memories of the late George Shultz, and one fellow’s disdain for the Super Bowl and the American version of “football.”
