For the last half of the 20th century, America was consumed by two struggles: the civil rights movement and the cold war. For 30 years, Hubert Humphrey stood at the center of both. As a soldier of the New Deal and the Great Society, he amassed one of the most prolific legislative records in senate history, sponsoring hundreds of bills--from Medicare to the Peace Corps to the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.

Hubert Humphrey - Who Should Never Be Fo

By Concerned Senior Citizen

from northern California

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Hubert H Humphrey: The Art of the Possible DVD:

Vice-President Hubert H. Humphrey was a major social thinker of the 20th century. Because of his innate modesty and the colossal egotism of his president, Lyndon Baines Johnson, Humphrey allowed himself to be sent to the sidelines.

And when it was finally time for him to come into his rightful place in history, when he ran for the presidency in 1968, President Johnson so thoroughly sabotaged his chances, he lost the election.

This film tells this story compellingly. It should be necessary viewing for all high school students in our country.

Comments about PBS Hubert H Humphrey: The Art of the Possible DVD:

Excellent....Although it is not, this is done in the same quality as the American Experience documentaries. Vice President Humphrey is a man that younger generations should learn about.
Proof that good/decent men and women can make a difference.

Memories of an earlier political era

By Chris

Comments about PBS Hubert H Humphrey: The Art of the Possible DVD:

I bought this DVD for my Media History class, and to share with my father. I grew up in the 1960s and early 1970s, and remember Hubert Humphrey as an energetic and compassionate reformer. My father, now 85, was a history teacher during that era and loved the DVD, too. In those days liberals and conservatives fought, but they also were able to reach compromise and get things done. Liberals like Humphrey had friends and was respected by people on both sides of the aisle. I met Humphrey once, in 1970. He was talkative and very friendly on that campaign bus ride in Northwest Ohio. I'll never forget how he was so interested in learning about other people on the bus that day. His era is one well worth remembering, and this DVD helps the current younger generation learn about a significant political figure in the third quarter of the 20th century.

Humphrey, a Man for all times

By Mary

from Sarasota, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS Hubert H Humphrey: The Art of the Possible DVD:

As a liberal, it was poignant to watch this documentary about the man who did so much to make this country better for everyone. He led us into a more inclusive country. It's too bad he got entangled with Johnson and the Vietnam War. Johnson was an impossible person to work for -- a bully who treated his subordinates, and his long suffering wife, like dirt.

Thanks to the maker of this documentary for giving Humphrey his due.
