Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner, who wrote the Oscar-nominated screenplay for Lincoln, joins Bill on an encore presentation of Moyers & Company this weekend to talk about finding the man inside the monument, and what Abraham Lincoln -- 147 years after his death -- can still teach us all about politics, compromise, and the survival of American democracy. "The job of the president is both to make the compromises necessary to actually have things happen in a democracy, which means compromising at a slower pace than anybody would necessarily like," Kushner tells Bill.
