"We live in a turbulent time. And one of America's foremost presidential historians has written a new book about how past American presidents have led through difficult times here. Now's Robin young. Has this story from concord, Massachusetts. We came to concord once home to throw and Louisa may Alcott to visit our old friend, historian doors, curtains goodwill. Oh, thank you so much doing this. Are you kidding? Are you kidding? Thank you. Know to see you. You. Probably just all right. Richard Goodwin, her husband of forty, two years father of their children and adviser and speechwriter to both JFK and LBJ died in may at eighty six. Their sprawling home on a rural road is filled with his big life. So let me just show these pictures. This is dick escorting Jackie to a state dinner. Young. I know it is this a great picture, and then this is this is the best one. He's getting the pen for having the, we shall overcome speech, which is what he worked on, and this is the pendants on Voting Rights Act. Some have called that one of the greatest speeches ever written and somewhat overlooked in the pantheon just because it was Lyndon Johnson who wasn't known as a speech, given the most important thing about a speech. Does it mobilize people to action? And the great thing it did was by using the phrase we shall overcome. It meant that he was connecting to the civil rights movement. When you have the person in power and this room movement coming from the outside in, then that's when you really get something Martin Luther King cry cried when he heard it. Yeah, it's it's an amazing speech. I mean, it starts out every now and then history and fate meet at a certain place at a certain time. So it was at Lexington and concord. So it wasn't up Matic's. So it wasn't so my Alabama. There long longsuffering men and women peacefully protested the denial of their rights as America. Many were brutally assaulted. One, good man. They man of God. Was killed. I mean, it's incredible is not, and he had only that day to write the speech. I couldn't do it if my life depended on it. So no, there's no way honest to God. So yeah, no, it's it's great stuff here. You've written the book about four men, but there's a fifth question. The other four men endorses life, the four presidents. She's written about for years and gathers now in her new book leadership in turbulent times, which looks at how Lincoln teddy Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Lyndon Baines Johnson handled those times. Like all of her writing. This is well researched. We make our way through walls lined with books. We'll have pictures at here. Now, dot org. We go through the nonfiction library to the fiction library books in it. I couldn't move from this house because of the books. What would I ever do with all these books? You know, it's a big part. It's our decoration, you know, instead of art or objects books are everything we go through more halls, lying whose looks three. Presidents have their own rooms at teddy Roosevelt's upstairs. Franklin's actually here, and finally, we sit down to talk about presidents and leadership. So the book is leadership in turbulent times by that. You mean of course, there's a civil war for Lincoln Vietnam war for Johnson..
