Reason.tv editor in chief Nick Gillespie appeared on a special President's Day episode of Jude Napolitano's Freedom Watch alongside author Monica Crowley and historian Tom Woods to discuss the perceived legacies of several U.S. presidents. Is Jefferson really a suitable libertarian icon? Was Woodrow Wilson the country's first technocratic president? Why is FDR revered by Progressives? Who really killed JFK? And did Reagan's governance match his small-government rhetoric? Gillespie and his fellow panelists discuss these topics, and more. Air Date: February 21, 2011.
