John Connally survived November 22, 1963 and went on to a long, distinguished career – including service as U.S. Treasury Secretary. In early 1983, he was a guest on Crossfire and reflects on the assassination of President Kennedy.
Connally was also asked about the most-impressive leader he’d worked with. His answer may surprise you.
Today, a tribute to a President whose killing affected a generation. Later, the Medal of Freedom awarded to another. Is there a chance to learn from legacies past? Or has Washington changed too dramatically since the Kennedy and Clinton presidencies?
In the Crossfire: Senators Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Tim Scott (R-SC).
They'll debate President Obama's Washington with hosts Newt Gingrich and Van Jones.
We want you to weigh in. Which President will history view more favorably?
