Quotes

Betsy Wright: I never understood how some of these Arkansas based people who were being relied on and listened to and wined and dined and flown around by the LA Times and others, how they got the credibility that they got to be listened to, because there wasn't one of them that was um a semi normal person."

Chronicle of a witch hunt
1 October 2004 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

The Hunting of a President is a documentary which chronicles the right wing beyond-all-reason attempt to unseat President Clinton during his two terms in office. Although it offers insights into the innerworkings of the anti-Clinton cabal, the film is more historical retrospective than revealing sensationalism as it pulls together the salient elements of what ultimately proved an ill-wrought Republican debacle. You'll see a rehash of everything from the Paula Jones brouhaha to the Whitewater scandal to the Ken Star witch-hunt to the Lewinsky affair and more all neatly laid out in a 90 minute package. Under special features is a talk by Bill Clinton which adds historical context and ancillary commentary. Well worth a look for anyone who lived through the 90's feeling as though they never quite understood what all that flack was about. (B)
