Channeling President Clinton
Saturday, July 03, 2004
Anna Deavere Smith is a playwright and professor. She also plays the national security advisor on the NBC’s The West Wing. In 1996 she interviewed Bill Clinton, George Bush the elder, and others who were shaping the election; and then she performed selections of those interviews verbatim, exactly as she heard them. Anna Deavere Smith talks with Kurt and samples her mimicry of President Clinton.
