'A Perfect Candidate'

Scene from this movie "A Perfect Candidate," in which candidates Chuck Robb and Oliver North vie for the 1994 Virginia senate seat, has just about everything the modern political circus has to offer: negative advertising, demagoguery, flip-flopping on the issues, cynical manipulation of public opinion, shameless lying and an abject refusal to introduce real substance to an election campaign. -- Desson Howe
