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

Doris Kearns Goodwin on CNN (13 April, 2016)

Doris joins CNN's Brooke Baldwin to talk about the history of the checks and balances behind presidential nominations. “The tensions still exist between the party wanting to make sure it can bring out a candidate who can win in the fall and ordinary people voting in the primaries who feel their vote should count,” says Doris. Watch the conversation and listen to Doris bring the upcoming Republican National Convention—a likely showdown between Donald J. Trump and Senator Ted Cruz—into context with previous contested conventions, including the violent affair between William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt in 1912, which she profiled in her most recent book "The Bully Pulpit."
