    (Preview) Henry Wallace pt. 2

    Henry Wallace pt.1 w/Jaffer Khan

    Henry Wallace pt.1 w/Jaffer Khan

    Comedian and former Redacted Tonight correspondent, Jaffer Khan joins Anders and Freddy for a breakdown of Henry Wallace. Not to be confused with the segregationist Governor George Wallace, Henry was also a third party candidate but from the other end of the spectrum.

    In addition to running as the Progressive Party Presidential nominee in 1948, Henry Wallace played a fascinating role in the Roosevelt Administration, as FDR's Agriculture Secretary and later, Vice President. As we discuss, Wallace has a healthy share of fans and critics alike but, as they all agree, history would be incomprehensibly different had he been renominated in 1944 and taken over after FDR's death.
