In this week’s Political Junkie program, host Ken Rudin speaks with Siobhan Hughes of the Wall Street Journal, who has been covering the political ramifications of the Affordable Care Act, and how some Democrats are feeling the 2014 heat. Also, as we approach the 50th anniversary of the assassination, John Shaw, author of “JFK in the Senate: Pathway to the Presidency” (Palgrave/Macmillan), talks about Kennedy’s record in the Senate (1953-60) … a period of his life that has received comparatively little scrutiny.
Plus: a new trivia question, the winner of last week’s ScuttleButton contest, and a “This Day in History” segment featuring Robert Byrd of West Virginia.

My wife and I really enjoyed the show. Fascinating stuff about Kennedy, and the “Byrd song” was a trip.
Hey Ken, Great show, so happy to hear you again. One question, I can’t seem to find the “uncut” version of the podcast that you mention at the end of the program, can someone direct me to that?
What a hole in my life the loss of P.J., and TOTN has left! What a treat to hear both you and Neil last week.
Disregard last comment, found uncut podcast. Keep up the great work.
