(Jim mentioned this in a comment to an older post, which made me think it probably deserves it’s own.)
For the past year Meet the Press has been inviting the various candidates to come on the show for a one-on-one chat with Tim Russert. The series is called “Meet the Candidates” and all of the major candidates have appeared for a one hour segment in which they discuss their platform (and get peppered by Russert’s uncanny knack for digging up rare quotes from the candidate’s past).
If you find yourself still uncertain which candidate you are leaning toward as we enter the primaries, it might be worth your while to invest a little time catching up on what you’ve missed. Each candidate’s segment is available to watch on the site, along with footage from past Meet the Press appearances. I just finished
watching listening to Ron Paul’s appearance and I’m looking forward to catching up on a few I’ve missed later in the week.
On a related note, this coming Sunday both Barack Obama and Mike Huckabee will be appearing on the show. I’m not certain if they’ll be squaring off, or if they will be appearing separately. Either way it should be worth tuning in (or setting the DVR – for those of you who aren’t home on Sunday mornings).
