Off to D.C. tomorrow to be a part of the panel on Meet The Press with Chuck Todd on Sunday. I suppose former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s speech and Governor Jeb Bush’s trip will be part of the conversation, and I will provide a preview on today’s show when Chuck joins me for our regular Friday segment.
Also on today’s show: A long conversation with General Stanley McChrystal about his engrossing new book Team of Teams and the third part of our seven Hillsdale Dialogues with Hillsdale’s president Dr. Larry Arnn discussing the third of the seven Lincoln-Douglas debates. The audiobook recreating the debates we will be referring to and hearing clips from, featuring David Strathairn as Lincoln and Richard Dreyfuss as Douglas, can be ordered here. This is a most amazing work, this recreation, and you should listen to them for yourselves. All of the Hillsdale Dialogues, beginning with Homer and bringing us thus far to 1858, are available here at HughForHillsdale.com. I am gratified to hear about all the binge-listening going on to this series which began in January of 2013.
