Chris Matthews of Hardball joins the program!! He has just finished his book Bobby Kennedy - A Raging Spirit.  Chris talks about RFK and how his history and childhood, and his relationship with Joe Kennedy Senior that informed his own politics. Those politics, according to Matthews, were just starting to develop at the end of his life, as he sought to defend society's less fortunate, while keeping working people of all races in mind.  In the interview, we discuss:

  • RFK - Brash Political Operator or Inspiring Leader?
  • Kennedy on Civil Rights
  • Kennedy and Joe McCarthy - Did he do enough?
  • Reagan and RFK
  • Would Bobby Kennedy have won in 1968?
