A New Biography of Bobby Kennedy

Feb 9, 2017

On The Point, Larry Tye joins host Mindy Todd to talk about his new 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 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.
