A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton

Oct 28, 2016

Carl Bernstein is a name many remember from the Watergate era of the 1970s. On this edition of River to River, host Ben Kieffer talks with the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist on the life of Hillary Clinton.

A Woman in Charge is the title of the book from 2007 that Carl Bernstein wrote about Clinton’s life, from her upbringing in Illinois to the U.S. Senate and the White House. 

Then, in the final segment of the show, Kieffer talks with Chris Schwartz of Waterloo, a candidate for Black Hawk County Supervisor. Thursday morning, he awoke to find his home had been vandalized with homophobic slurs. Schwartz is gay and believes the vandalism is a hate crime.
