Guest: Thomas Fleming

In this episode, Bob interviewed our first president, George Washington. Well, not quite. But close. With great pride and excitement, we welcomed Thomas Fleming, one of our nation’s leading historians, biographer of Washington, Jefferson and Franklin, past President of the Society of American Historians and author of the popular blog “Channeling George Washington”, to our show. Bob and Tom discussed money and politics, then and now. What did the Founders intend to be the relationship between the two? Is money a political pollutant, or its lifeblood? Tom Fleming shared his lifetime of study to the important and timely issue, and put it all into keen historical perspective.
