Midday: Senator-elect Klobuchar and a tribute to Arthur Schlesinger
Posted at 9:44 AM on December 20, 2006 by Bill Wareham (1 Comments)
At 11 a.m., U.S. Senator-elect Amy Klobuchar will be in the MPR studio with Gary Eichten to talk about her plans for her first term in Washington, which begins in about 2 weeks. Klobuchar will be sworn in on Jan. 4.
At noon, a tribute to 89-year-old Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Arthur Schlesinger recorded at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston. It features remarks by other historians, including Doris Kearns Goodwin, Alan Brinkley and Sean Wilentz.
There were a number of responses in our coffee
group that PM--Wellstone references/comparisons,
political integrity, etc. Wondered about her
comments on the impact of Paul Wellstone.
The historians at noon made some excellent
distinctions on the interpretation of history, and
the high school teacher made some good contri-butions.
There were several references to a "classic"
in history from the '60s and I missed that title/
author and would love to read it. Help.
