More from the Thomas Jefferson Hour
When I landed back in Bismarck on the eve of the eve of the great eclipse, and thought what it would mean to miss such a cosmic moment, I spontaneously threw a sleeping bag and tent into my car and drove off to Wyoming.
"The universe is a clock … it's an elaborate machine."
— Thomas Jefferson, as portrayed by Clay S. Jenkinson
"How can you call yourself a Jeffersonian if you don't go see [the eclipse]?"
Clay takes us on a road trip to Wyoming to witness the eclipse. Later in the episode, David Nicandri phones in to report on his experience.
"You can object to anybody's politics, but I firmly believe that you can't object to President Obama's character."
— Beau Wright
President Thomas Jefferson speaks about the White House — during his time and ours — with this week's special guest, Beau Wright. Wright spent over five years serving in the White House, nearly two years of that time as Senior Deputy Director of White House Operations and Director for Finance.
Beau Wright is currently Director of Operations for United to Protect Democracy.
