Jeff Greenfield (UW '64) has had a pretty great career since he edited the Daily Cardinal -- speechwriter for Sen. Robert Kennedy, commentator on CNN and CBS, successful author. His latest book is a wildly entertaining trio of novellas, Then Everything Changed: Stunning Alternate Histories of American Politics - JFK, RFK, Carter, Ford & Reagan [Putnam]. Jeff will be back on campus in late April, but we've got him first.
