Episode #60: Obama SOTU a Hit; Whither Mitt?

Lots of discussion around #SOTU centered on the president’s legacy. One president whose legacy is now being widely discussed is Lyndon Johnson. His character’s portrayal in the movie “Selma,” pits him against Dr. Martin Luther King and the grassroots movement for voting rights. Two historians, Professor Julian Zelizer of Princeton University, an expert on Johnson, and Dr. Clayborne Carson of Stanford, an expert on King, discuss what America was going through in 1965 and how the two men connected in real life.
