The occasionally nasty race for the Democratic nomination continues - and it brings to mind another battle between very different Democrats. In 1984, Senator Gary Hart's upstart bid against Walter Mondale fell short after a protracted debate over who might be better prepared to lead the nation. Another run at the White House was derailed by reports of an extramarital affair.
Hart has dedicated most of his post-politcal career to policy issues. He's chairman of the Council for a Livable World, and he's speaking in Hartford tomorrow about his latest book: Under the eagle's wing: the national security strategy of the United States for 2009. We spoke to him from his office at the Unverisity of Colorado-Denver, where he's a scholar in residence.
