Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream: The Most Revealing Portrait of a President and Presidential Power Ever Written

Doris Kearns Goodwin on CNN Reliable Sources (30 August, 2015)

On CNN Reliable Sources, Doris provides what little historical context there is for the unique and extended presidential campaign we are witnessing now—one with, as host Brian Stelter describes, 22 candidates, including a self-described socialist, a brain surgeon and a former First Lady. On the subject of the biggest headline grabber of all the candidates, Donald J. Trump, Doris sums up his popularity: “You feel like all the (other) candidates have put this girdle on. They talk from a teleprompter. They talk from a script. And we are not seeing them (as they are). We are seeing Trump as he is. And maybe that's part of the appeal.” Watch the conversation here and listen to Doris’ take on why many Republicans may embrace a Washington outsider for the job of President.
