5. Doris Kearns Goodwin, American Biographer and Historian

The Interview with Hugh Hewitt

On this episode of The Interview, Hugh replays an interview he conducted with American biographer and historian Doris Kearns Goodwin from 2013 where they discuss her book "The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism."  Doris Kearns Goodwin’s The Bully Pulpit is a dynamic history of the first decade of the Progressive era, that tumultuous time when the nation was coming unseamed and reform was in the air. The story is told through the intense friendship of Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft—a close relationship that strengthens both men before it ruptures in 1912, when they engage in a brutal fight for the presidential nomination that divides their wives, their children, and their closest friends, while crippling the progressive wing of the Republican Party, causing Democrat Woodrow Wilson to be elected, and changing the country’s history.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In 2005, noted presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, whose best selling books included volumes about Lyndon Johnson and John F Kennedy, took on a new subject: Abraham Lincoln.  Struck by the political acumen displayed by this simple country lawyer, Goodman titled her book  Team of Rivals.
