My biggest take away from this vid: this kind of show would never happen today. You would never see a modern politician put themselves in a spot like this where a "gotcha" moment is just waiting to happen. They would never take the chance of being pulled off their talking points, or where the topics of discussion haven't been pre-screened. You can see it all through the vid that Paul is becoming unflapped (and rightfully so). Anymore, that would become ammunition for talking heads and pundits to blather over and discuss how "Paul's political aspirations are now shot".

It's a shame how controlled and manicured the whole process has become.
