Episode #155: Giving Thanks to Great Political Memories

Because we’re all spending Thanksgiving with friends and families this week, we decided to leave you with three past interviews that are completely timeless and worth another listen.

Before there were Bushes & Clintons, there were the Tafts.  Former Ohio Gov. Bob Taft remembers his grandfather, Mr. Republican himself, Sen. Robert A. Taft.

John Dickerson, the host of “Face the Nation,” has a new book that is filled with his favorite political moments in history.  He brings many of them to life, not only in his book “Whistlestop,” but on the Political Junkie.

And, Larry Tye talks about his new biography, “Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon,” and chronicles how RFK went from working with Joe McCarthy in the early 1950s to fighting for peace in Vietnam and social justice in the 1960s … until his tragic assassination in 1968.
