HAROLD MEYERSON talks about Ted Kennedy’s place in American politics — “He was, as he lay dying, new again,” Harold writes at The American Prospect Online — because “Kennedy outlived the Reagan-Thatcher conservative era to which for so many years he had led the opposition.”
Plus: Iraq: the Forever War. DEXTER FILKINS covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan starting 2001 for the New York Times. Filkins describes “an arid, hopeless policy” in an unforgettable book: The Forever War. It’s out now in paperback. (first aired 9/17/2008)
