"Leadership: In Turbulent Times"; Ohio Lawmakers Prepare For Lame Duck Session

Abraham Lincoln faced Civil War and slavery. Teddy Roosevelt inherited a country on the verge of revolution driven by economic inequality. Franklin Delano Roosevelt had to pull the nation out of the Great Depression, and fast. And Lyndon Baines Johnson was compelled to help heal a nation by getting a civil rights act through Congress. Each steered the nation through crisis.  In her latest book, "Leadership: In Turbulent Times," Doris Kearns Goodwin highlights the start of each of these presidents' political careers, the setbacks they overcame, and the crises they managed for the good of the nation. She joins us for discussion. 
Up first, the latest from Columbus as lawmakers head back to the statehouse following the election.
