Elections Past - A 1984 Interview With Alan Cranston And Gary Hart.

Elections Past - A 1984 interview with Democratic Presidential hopefuls Alan Cranston and Gary Hart,

<strong>Drawing numbers for the Dartmouth Debate. Smiling now, but . . </strong>.


Continuing the backward look at Presidential elections past, we're taking a stop at the 1984 Democratic Primaries and this interview by Leslie Stahl with Democratic Presidential hopefuls Alan Cranston and Gary Hart on the eve of the New Hampshire Primary.

This broadcast of Face The Nation from February 27, 1984 covers a number of subjects, among them; Cranston's age (69 at the time), Jesse Jackson's slips-of-tongue, Gary Hart's 16% showing in Iowa and his surge in the polls before New Hampshire, Foreign Policy, Republicans in general - who will be left standing after Tuesday in particular.

Politics in 1984. 28 years and another planet later . . .
