Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Senator Brown Endorses Obama
Listen to the Story
Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown announced Thursday that he will endorse Barack Obama for the democratic presidential nomination. He was one of few remaining neutral superdelegates. Brown says he called Senator Hillary Clinton Thursday morning to thank her for her for fighting for middle class issues throughout her campaign.
“In my conversations with Hillary and Barack have been helping them hone in on those issues that really are going to strengthen the middle class in Ohio and our country,” Brown said.
Brown says the long primary season has helped the Democratic Party which he says will now unite behind Obama.
“People are going to start pulling together because the contrast is so clear,” he said.”Barack Obama stands for a different trade policy, a different energy policy, a very different policy in Iraq. John McCain stands for more George Bush, more of the same, more business as usual.” Senator Clinton is expected to suspend her campaign this weekend.
