The Bull Moose Candidacy from Prairie Public
2012 marks the 100th anniversary of
Theodore Roosevelt's third party bid to be president. We will
look back at Roosevelt's career and how the issues he raised in the
1912 campaign are still at the center of today's political
debates. Roosevelt scholar Clay Jenkinson (known to some for "The Thomas
Jefferson Hour") is featured along with wax recordings of TR's campaign speeches.
Eleanor Roosevelt on This I Believe by Edward R. Murrow
Eleanor Roosevelt, niece of Teddy Roosevelt, was active in
Democratic politics and helped shape her husband's New Deal programs
while he was president. She is considered one of the most active and
influential First Ladies in U.S. history, she advocated racial equality,
women's rights, and world peace. With Eleanor's time, she will speak to us about responsibility.
