This week on A Woman's Point of View the following topics were covered:

The Bully Pulpit

Laissez-faire capitalism, growing chasms between the haves and have-nots, a government being controlled by a small "cabal" in the Senate who felt that government either greased the skids for big money or got out of the way. Sounds like now? No, turn back to the last century and find out how Theodore Roosevelt as President used the "Bully Pulpit" to directly appeal to the people to "break up the trusts or they will break you." Either learn your history or you are condemned to repeat it! DORIS KEARNS GOODWIN discusses her latest book, "The Bully Pulpit" which covers the times of Theodore Roosevelt and Howard Taft and compares the conditions then to now.
