- Program Description
This report presents political biographies of the two leading candidates for the presidency, Republican George Bush and Democrat Bill Clinton. Correspondent and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Ben Cramer (author of What It Takes: The Way to the White House, regarding the 1988 presidential election) examines the public careers and private lives of these men, searching for clues to their character and the patterns of behavior that could predict how they might handle the problems confronting the U.S. in the post Cold-War era. These biographies are to be told through interviews with the people who know the candidates best, like President Bush's brother Jonathan and Secretary of Defense Richard Cheney. For Clinton, interviews include his mother and his chief of staff, Betsey Wright. The film also includes the more skeptical voices of journalists, activists, and political opponents who have clashed with the candidates.
