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

Doris Kearns Goodwin on Meet the Press (13 March, 2016)

On today's Meet the Press on NBC News, Doris talks about the violence we're seeing at the campaign rallies for Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump, particularly in Chicago on Friday night, compared to the 1912 contest between Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft, which involved clubs, baseball bats, guns and dynamite. “As a historian, I might say, ‘200 years from now, a historian will be able to detail this the way I couldn't.’ But as a citizen, it's pretty scary and sad.” Watch the conversation on the campaign violence here with Chuck Todd, Republican strategist Alex Castellanos, The Washington Post’s Anne Gearan, and radio talk show host and author Hugh Hewitt.
