6In 1999, she was consulted by Steven Spielberg as part of his research about a film he wanted to make about Abraham Lincoln. Goodwin revealed that she was working on a book, entitled "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln". Spielberg immediately expressed interest in using this book as the basis for his film, and Dreamworks Pictures finalized the film rights in 2001. The book itself was not published until 2005.
7Received the 2006 Richard Nelson Current Award of Achievement from the Lincoln Forum.
8Winner of 1995 Pulitzer Prize for non-fiction for book "No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II."
9In the wake of accusations over plagiarism in her "The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys", history book in 1987, Goodwin resigned from board of Pulitzer Prize judges, 31 May 2002. Had been a member of the board since 1999.Resignation followed a probe since January, 2002 of possible plagiarism in other books of hers. She acknowledged she had long before made cash payment to author Lynne McTaggart to settle dispute over charges that Goodwin had plagiarized from her book, "Kathleen Kennedy".
10Historian and author, she also serves as professor at Harvard where she earned her Ph.D. in political science. Is one of country's foremost presidential historians.

13Historian and author.

1[on the relationship between Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft] Taft was Roosevelt's handpicked successor. I didn't know how deep the friendship was between the two men until I read their almost four hundred letters, stretching back the to early '30s. It made me realize the heartbreak when they ruptured was much more than a political division.
2Roosevelt coined the phrase 'bully pulpit' for the platform a president has to influence public sentiment. I think after Sandy Hook, when Obama went out and he talked a lot about gun control and met with the parents, there was a sense that something was going to happen. But then, I guess, the power of special interests was greater than public sentiment.
3Those who knew Lincoln described him as an extraordinarily funny man. Humor was an essential aspect of his temperament. He laughed, he explained, so he did not weep. His 'eyes would sparkle with fun', one old-timer remembered, 'and when he had reached the point in his narrative which invariably invoked the laughter of the crowd, nobody's enjoyment was greater than his'. His ability to counter criticism with humor was legendary. When told that he was two-faced, he instantly responded, 'If I had two faces, do you think I'd be wearing this face?'
4Although Lincoln's voice was 'thin' and 'high-pitched', reporter Horace White recalled, it had 'much carrying power' and 'could be heard a long distance in spite of the bustle and tumult of the crowd'. While he seemed awkward at first, when he 'hit his stride', White observed, he grew 'very impassioned' and 'seemed transfigured' by the strength of his words.
5Lincoln's singular way of walking, contemporaries observed, gave the impression his long, gaunt frame needed oiling. He would plod forward in an awkward manner, his hands hanging at his sides or folded, behind his back. His step had no spring, his law partner William Herndon recalled. He lifted his whole foot at once and then thrust it down on the ground rather than landing on his heel. 'His legs', another observer noted, 'seemed to drag from the knees down, like those of a laborer going home after a hard day's work'.
6A lot of times when people are on campaigns, it can be like a movie set.
