Politicians and Pets
April 19, 2010
Politicians are known for doing almost anything when they are campaigning. Kissing babies comes to mind most commonly. In this priceless scene from the C-SPAN Video Library, then majority leader Senator George Mitchell is presented a turtle named George as he tours a nature farm in his state. See what happens next in the unpredictable world of politics.
This program is part of the “Day in the Life of ….” that C-SPAN has created over the years by following political leaders in a day. Use that search phrase in the Video Library to find interesting behind the scenes glimpses into a number of current and past leaders including a Member of Parliament. (Hint: put “Day in the Life” in quotes so that it zeroes in on the group of words appearing together and does not find “day” or “life” separated.)
