The Claremont Institute’s American Mind series with host Charles Kesler kicks off in earnest with an interview of Bill Bennett. The American Mind seeks to deliver the insights, ideas, and perspectives of our brightest conservative thinkers, writers and political philosophers, in a monthly series of intimate conversations hosted by Professor Kesler, editor of The Claremont Review of Books.
We previewed the interview last week with its first segment. The interview was recorded during the GOP presidential primaries and may sound slightly dated in that segment. The interview then proceeds to cover a range of still timely topics including manliness, the importance of heroes in America, President Obama, the Republican Party and Ronald Reagan. By arrangement with the Claremont Institute we are pleased to present the interview in its entirety (just over 40 minutes). Please check it out.
