James Reston discusses The Lone Star: The Life of John Connally.

Author James Reston takes a look at the life of Texas businessman and politician John Connally in The Lone Star: The Life of John Connally. As part of the interview he discusses his controversial theory of the Kennedy assassination being motivated by a grudge against John Connally by Lee Harvey Oswald. Mr. Connally was a passenger in President Kennedy's convertible and was wounded when the president was assassinated. Also discussed are the later events in Connally's life from the milk price support allegations in the 1970's through his bankruptcy in 1987. "At the center of three presidencies, he came as close to becoming a president himself as he did to being a lesser martyr when Kennedy was assassinated. His life has drama of epic proportions."
