    Whistle Stop

    His approval rating low and his own party disenchanted, Harry Truman had the look of a one-term president in summer 1948.

Philip White discusses the journey and his new book "Whistle Stop: How 31,000 Miles of Train Travel, 352 Speeches, and a Little Midwest Gumption Saved the Presidency of Harry Truman". Truman beat Dewey in the next election. RSVP with the Web link below....details >>
