Lessons & Losses: A Discussion of Week Two’s Artifacts
Follow @azmatzahraSeptember 28, 2012, 10:32 am ET
Behind the campaigns, behind the slogans, who really are Mitt Romney and Barack Obama?
As we lead up to The Choice 2012, FRONTLINE is publishing “The Artifacts of Character,” rare documents, photos, speeches and objects from the candidates lives that can give meaning to who they are and what they represent.
We released four more artifacts this week, looking back at their early debates — and losses, and at the lessons they taught others.
Where do the artifacts fit into the arc of their lives? What can they tell us about who Barack Obama and Mitt Romney really are — and how they compare with each other?
We’ve asked a small group of the country’s leading journalists covering the candidates to discuss these questions, and assess what we might learn from the week’s collection of artifacts, which you can find below or here: Artifact 5, Artifact 6, Artifact 7 and Artifact 8.
See the thread below for a full list of our panelists. The conversation has already begun, and will continue throughout the afternoon.
(We recommend using Chrome or Safari for the best experience.)
