From the archives: Jack Germond on political theatrics


Longtime political reporter Jack Germond appeared on Meet the Press 39 times. In this exchange from our archives - with moderator Tim Russert and fellow panelists – Germond reacts to the 2000 Democratic National Convention. He memorably discusses “the kiss” by Al and Tipper Gore and responds to the trend of politicians trying to ‘scintillate’ their audience.
