Historical videos on Henry WallaceThe Real News Network did two videos last year recalling the political career of Henry Wallace, Vice President during Franklin Roosevelt's third term and the Progressive Party candidate for President in 1948. He is particularly remembered as a critic of the early Cold War policies the United States pursued.
Part 1 is called When the American VP Was Progressive 07/09/2010
Part 2 is called Is There Any "Wallace" Left in the Democratic Party? 07/10/2010:
The first video mentions an article Wallace published in the New York Times, The Danger of American Fascism 04/09/1944. Back when I was still in my first year of blogging, I used that article for a post about Wallace and the far right in the 1930s and 1940s, Henry Wallace on the threat of fascism in America 07/31/2004. Re-reading it now, I will modestly say that it holds up well.
