What Kind of Person Runs for President?

Hosted by

This year's presidential nominating process is longer, and arguably more grueling, than any in history. As we've heard so often, there has never been a day like today. Who is willing to put up with months of campaigning, day after day, under the eyes of cameras almost 24/7? Who wants to be in the White House? We get two perspectives. Stephen Hess served on the White House staffs of Presidents Eisenhower and Nixon and was an advisor to both Carter and Ford. Drew Weston is a professor of psychology at Emory University.
