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

Doris Kearns Goodwin on CNN (9 January, 2017)

In a segment of CNN’s special report looking back on the legacy of President Barack Obama, the subject turns to the devastating gun violence that plagued the U.S. in recent years. From a historical perspective, Doris talks about gun control in relation to the choices Presidents must make when looking to enact legislation. “A President has to decide what priorities he’s going to have a chance of getting through, like gun control. (Obama) might have felt if I go for that, then I may lose this… You’re building up capital or you’re losing capital.” More on the documentary by Fareed Zakaria on CNN.
