Senate Survivor Thurmond Turns 100

U.S. Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-SC) celebrates his 100th birthday. He's the longest-serving senator ever -- though he is about to retire -- and his life experiences run the gamut of recent American history. Along the way he's courted controversy. NPR's Bob Edwards has Thurmond's story.
