Nov. 13, 2008 — -- In his first post-election television interview, Chicago activist Williams Ayers, who became a center of controversy during the presidential election, breaks his silence in an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo on Friday's "Good Morning America."

Ayers, a leader of the '60s radical group the Weathermen, became a political lightning rod because of past associations with President-elect Obama.

In his first exclusive interview, Ayers talks about the reissue of his 2001 memoir, "Fugitive Days," and his journey from privileged youth to '60s radical.
