Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Former U.S. Senator Fritz Hollings takes a look back at his nearly 60 year career in the Senate this Sunday on "Newswatch."

Hollings talks about his years in the Senate in his new book "Making Government Work."

Hollings knew just about everyone in politics and talks about his close relationships with Jack and Bobby Kennedy, his controversial hunger tour in South Carolina in 1969 and his support of Lyndon Johnson and General Westmoreland, U.S. Commander in Vietnam.

Hollings says lessons need to be learned from Vietnam for the current war.

"We had no idea of securing, to have the withdrawal on the next fellow's watch," Hollings said.
