Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Troy Senik, cofounder of Kite & Key, to discuss his new book, “A Man of Iron: The Turbulent Life and Improbable Presidency of Grover Cleveland.” They chat about Cleveland’s meteoric political career and how his stubbornness and his incorruptibility became the key to his political appeal, as well as to his political fall. They also place the context behind Cleveland’s frequent yielding of the veto pen, discuss whether the personal scandals that dogged him were true, and if there are any lessons his presidency can offer us in the 21st Century.
