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

Doris Kearns Goodwin on CNN (10 January, 2017)

On the eve of President Obama's Farewell Address, here's “The Legacy of Barack Obama" from CNN. On the program, Doris weighs in on the historical significance of The Affordable Healthcare Act, also known as Obamacare, which proved a notably polarizing piece of legislation during Obama's time in The White House. With President Obama focused on finally ensuring affordable healthcare for all Americans, a sector that seven of his predecessors had been unable to accomplish, Goodwin recalls “that Presidents have been trying since Teddy Roosevelt to get healthcare passed. FDR was hoping to do it [and] JFK.” See part of the Fareed Zakaria documentary here.
