NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Linda Peek Schacht is our guest on INSIDE POLITICS this week. She is a former White House and campaign aide to President Jimmy Carter. We will get her thoughts on her former boss coming to Nashville this week to build nearly two dozen affordable homes through Habitat for Humanity. We will get her to reflect on her time in the White House back in the late 1970s and how things have changed in politics, and in so many other ways since then. In our conversation, Linda also draws a sharp contrast to how President Carter conducted himself and his administration compared to what is happening today throughout Washington. Since leaving the White House, Linda has had a distinguished career in politics (Senate Majority Leader staff), the media (USA TODAY), business (COCA COLA) and with Lipscomb University where is a founder of the Nelson & Sue Andrews Leadership Institute. So, we will discuss a little politics, including upcoming 2020 elections. Watch us!
