Politicians off the record

Drawn in by this story in the Harvard Crimson, I went poking around on the Harvard IOP website, and for anyone who's around the Boston area, their programs look fascinating. Especially this one:

    IOP Study Group Rove's Brain: The White House's plans to create a durable Republican majority

    Time: 4:00 pm
    Location: L166, First Floor, Littauer Building
    This event is open to the public and off the record.
    The content of “special lunches” such as this is off the record by IOP policy, in order to encourage attendance and participation both by featured political figures and students.

    Christoper L. Corcoran ’07, the chair of the IOP’s Study Groups Committee, instructed participants last night not to speak to the press about the content of the discussion.

    In an e-mail entitled “Gag Order,” Corcoran wrote that “nothing about Senator Kerry’s responses, including either specific or topical matters, should be shared with the press.”
