Frontline Documentary Explores the Lives of Romney and Obama


What do the notes from Professor Barack Obama's law school classes look like? How was Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts able to fillet Mitt Romney, his challenger, in Mr. Romney's first major debate?

On Oct. 9, PBS will broadcast “The Choice,” a Frontline documentary exploring the formative experiences, decisive moments and worldviews of President Obama and Mr. Romney. In the run-up to the film's premiere, Frontline is sharing some rare documents, video clips and photographs of the candidates, including the law school notes, the Romney-Kennedy debate clip, and many others.

Friday, several Obama and Romney biographers, including David Maraniss and Jason Horowitz of The Washington Post a nd Jodi Kantor of The Times, will be discussing the documents and clips. (Last's week installment is available here, and another discussion will take place next Friday.)
