Episode Detail: An Independent Cast of Mind - The American President
Independence is “essential to my existence,” says John Adams, who's profiled in Part 3 (of 10), along with Zachary Taylor, Rutherford B. Hayes and Jimmy Carter, four Presidents who “put the national interest above the concerns of their parties,” says host Hugh Sidey. All four suffered as a result, and none served two terms. Sidey interviews Carter. Voices: Morley Safer (Adams); Tom Wicker (Taylor); John Glenn (Hayes).
