Paths to Power: Obama/Romney Artifacts Discussion Week 3
October 5, 2012, 11:04 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 six more artifacts this week, looking back at some seminal moments that defined their paths to power, and their identities as public figures.
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 9, Artifact 10, Artifact 11, Artifact 12, Artifact 13 and Artifact 14.
See the thread below for a full list of our panelists. The conversation has already begun, and will continue throughout the afternoon.
