We discuss all things Ike with William Hitchcock - author of "The Age of Eisenhower."  We talk about how President Eisenhower was a surprisingly good politician, how he navigated Civil Rights, Social Security and other domestic programs, how he dealt with LBJ.  We discuss the failure that upset him the most, and what he may have gotten wrong. 

We also get to the bottom of that Military Industrial Complex.
