On Monday at 9 p.m., HBO premieres “All About Ann: Governor Richards of the Lone Star State,” a compelling documentary about the feisty, fiery and funny force of nature who rose to power in the conservative state of Texas, despite her unapologetically liberal politics. The documentary traces her story, from growing up poor in rural Texas to becoming a national Democratic leader, through interviews with close friends, family members and admirers. Those offering thoughts include Bill Clinton, Dan Rather and Liz Smith.
