The authors of the Constitution established Congress, the legislative branch of the federal government. Congress is an arena for expressing opinions, agreeing, disagreeing, and for compromise. Controversy is also oftentimes a part of this branch as seen during the Clinton impeachment proceedings. In spite of this, no President can effectively govern without the support of Congress. This program examines the role of Congress, its organization, powers and responsibilities, and requirements to serve. | Educational right Date: 2004 Availability: No items available:

102. Huey Long   Publication: Tuner Broadcasting System, Inc 1996 . 88 min. ; color & b/w , Huey Long: He was a populist hero and a corrupt demagogue, hailed as a champion of the poor and reviled as a dictator. Louisianaíªs Huey Long built his remarkable career as Governor and U.S. Senator on a platform of social reform and justice, all the while employing graft and corruption to get what he wanted. Longíªs spellbinding personality and political machine might have taken him to the White House had he not been assassinated in 1935. This finely crafted film by Ken Burns reveals a complex and comprehensive portrait of the man and the era, his politics and the power he so obsessively sought. Extensive archival footage and recollections by Louisianans who knew Long are juxtaposed with candid contemporary interviews with historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.; the late journalist I.F. Stone; and the late author Robert Penn Warren, whose magnificent novel All the Kingíªs Men was inspired by the rise and fall of Huey Long. Date: 1996 Availability: No items available:
