11/1/06: Mr. Conservative

Salt Lake City, UT – 1964 presidential candidate Barry M. Goldwater was known as "Mr. Conservative." But while denouncing liberals and communists and advocating limited government, free enterprise and a strong defense - some of his positions would shock the right today. In a new HBO documentary, director Julie Anderson and producer CC Goldwater not only profile the 30-year career of a hugely influential US Senator, but also the distance the country has traveled since his time. They join Doug, along with historian Bob Goldberg, for a discussion of the film.
