Last night I watched the BookTV: Politics and Prose Bookstore; Then Everything Changed C-SPAN session, on TV. The program description is shown next:
Jeff Greenfield, CBS News senior political correspondent explores three moments in U.S. history; the near assassination of JFK by a 73-year-old suicide bomber in December 1960, the assassination of Robert Kennedy on June 5, 1968 and the presidential debate between Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter in October 1976. Instead of recounting the historical record,Mr. Greenfield opines on what might have happened had the participants made different choices, which would have altered the events of the day. Jeff Greenfield presents his thoughts at Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., on March 11, 2011. This session lasted 45 minutes.
I enjoyed this session about what might have been had events in American politics been different. The book sounds very interesting for those of us impacted by tragic events of the 1960’s.
