Rick Perlstein: "Whatever Happened To Hope: Why Barack Obama Cannot Become A Transformational President"

The great historian Rick Perlstein gave a great talk to Vanderbilt University.

I was going to cut some parts out, but he's such a great source of information that you should see him whenever you get the chance.

And his last book, "Nixonland" is really a treat to be savored.
