Bobby (2006): Bobby Kennedy is Interviewd
The clip bobby kennedy is interviewd from Bobby (2006) when the senator came through Prestonsburg? Oh, it, uh, it's one of the greatest days we've ever had in this town... especially the young people. They're all crazy about him. Do you feel any differently after seeing him? I feel a little prouder being an American. Did you get to see the senator?. Yes, sir, I did. How did you feel about it? Whew. I was very pleased. I'd just loved to have got to laid my hand on him. Senator, you've just about completed the second day now. Is there anything significant that you've learned on this trip? Well, people, uh, are still having a very, very difficult time. There is hunger, considerable hunger in this part of the country. There's no real hope for the future amongst many of these people who, uh, worked hard in the coal mines, and now that the coal mines shut down, uh, they have no place to go. There's no hope for the future. There's no industry moving in. The men are trained in government programs and there's no jobs at the end of the training program because of the cutback, because of the demands on our federal budget in Washington and the war in Vietnam there... even these training programs are being cut back, and so people are being cut off and they have no place to turn, and so they're, uh, desperate and... and filled with despair. It seems to me that, uh, this country, as wealthy as we are, that this is an intolerable condition that reflects on all of us. We can do things all over the rest of the world, but I think we should do something for our people here in our own country.
