As a counselor to world leaders, CEOs, celebrities, and political movements, Steve Schmidt — over the past two decades — has played an influential role in American politics and helped  navigate some of the most high-stakes corporate crises and business strategy challenges of our  time. In the aftermath of the 2016 American presidential election, Steve has emerged as one of  the strongest and most incisive voices commenting on U.S. politics and global issues. Well known for his part in the 2008 U.S. election cycle, Steve was credited for transforming Senator  John McCain’s campaign “from corpse to contender.” He previously architected a similar  turnaround for California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Steve was a top strategist in the  2004 campaign to re-elect President George W. Bush and served in the Bush administration,  during which time he led the successful confirmations of two U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.
