Bully Pulpit - Doris Kearns Goodwin on From a Woman's POV
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. Sound 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."

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. Tune in December 12.comments powered by Disqus
