Description

Joseph Rodota, Political Consultant; Author, The Watergate: Inside America’s Most Infamous Address

Monday Night Philosophy gets detailed about a location's influence on the action within its walls. Rodota gives an eye-opening look at the remarkable cast of characters — politicians, journalists, socialites and spies — who helped make the Watergate, after it opened in 1965, into the most infamous private address in Washington. The cast includes the Watergate burglars; Washington’s first "super lobbyist" Tommy Corcoran and his "Tiger Hostess" Anna Chennault; the irrepressible Martha Mitchell, wife of Nixon's attorney general John Mitchell, who captivated the nation with a stream of outrageous interviews from her Watergate duplex; Reagan’s California posse; Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Atonin Scalia; Condoleezza Rice, who played the piano in chamber music concerts she staged in her Watergate living room; and Elizabeth and Bob Dole, who lived next door to Monica Lewinsky and her mother.
