What We Can Learn from Lincoln

Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner, who wrote the screenplay to Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, joins Bill to talk about finding the man inside the monument, and what Abraham Lincoln -- 147 years after his death -- can still teach us all about politics, compromise, and the survival of American democracy.

Also on the show, Bill urges us to remember the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre by name. He also rejects the notion of doubling down on guns and body armor as a response, and encourages all of us to work hard on realistic and moral solutions.
