The Making of a Liberal Icon: Bobby Kennedy

Jun 5, 2018

On The Point, Larry Tye joins host Mindy Todd to talk about his book Bobby Kennedy, the Making of Liberal Icon. Known as a civil rights leader and advocate for the poor, the lesser-known Bobby Kennedy worked for Joe McCarthy and employed questionable tactics to help his brother Jack get elected. We talk about the transformation of a privileged young man, ill-qualified for his early positions in government, into the principled, articulate and passionate candidate for President.
