Archivists at the Truman Library announce the discovery of a diary kept by President Harry S. Truman in 1947. The diary, which details among other things Truman's thoughts on the Marshall Plan and his meetings with world leaders, also suggests the president was eager to see Dwight D. Eisenhower become president. Hear NPR's Ari Shapiro.
