My Conversation With Gail Sheehy

Tonight on PBS I'm joined by best-selling writer and journalist Gail Sheehy, who, throughout her distinguished career, has profiled many of the world's most influential people. Her latest book is a memoir is titled Daring: My Passages, in which she urges all of us to take more chances and dare to do what we might think is beyond our abilities.

In this clip I asked Gail Sheehy, who interviewed Hillary Clinton many times over the decades, if she thinks the country is now ready for a woman president.
