Arthur Miller on Politicians as Actors

Ahead of his delivery of a Jefferson Lecture in Washington, D.C., playwright Arthur Miller talks about his lecture topic: Politics and the Art of Acting. He calls it an "attempt to contrast the sincerity of certain people with the performance psychology of so many of them," from FDR, Clinton and Gore to Reagan and George W. Bush.
