Campaigns on TV

NPR's Steve Inskeep reports on the next phase of the presidential campaign... television. Vice-President Al Gore and his wife appeared on CNN's Larry King Live last night to answer questions about prescription drugs, social security, and budget surpluses. Gore also responded to criticism about what opponents call his tendency to exaggerate the facts. The Democratic candidate also offered to stop campaign commercials funded by soft money.
