Doris Kearns Goodwin on The Bully Pulpit

Email a Friend

Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin talks about the intense friendship of Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft—a close relationship that ruptured in 1912, when they engage in a fight for the presidential nomination that divides their wives, their children, and their closest friends, and had vast political repercussions. Goodwin’s new book, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism is also the story of the muckraking press.
