Presidential Historian Michael Beschloss
Presidential Historian Michael Beschloss

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Wednesday on the program we're rebroadcasting our conversation with one of the country's leading presidential historians - Michael Beschloss. In his recent book, Beschloss has selected stories of American presidents who jeopardized their political careers - their reputations - even their lives to make the right decision. Beschloss writes: "Throughout our history it has been important for presidents to summon the courage to dismiss what is merely popular." This isn't just history, it's also a commentary on the political culture of our time. (Rebroadcast)
