2008 CGD State of the Union Bingo

Monday, January 28, 2008 - 8:00pm to 10:00pm


On Monday, January 28th, President Bush delivered his final State of the Union address to Congress, the American people – and to a global audience seeking to understand American’s priorities in the world. At CGD's State of the Union Bingo, with the assistance of a large screen television and CGD Bingo Cards, we counted down mentions of malaria, trade, poverty, and climate change, among others. 

This event is part of the Center for Global Development’s series of Movies, Books and Conversations: Development Matters
