Every 4 years, 2 Americans face off in a battle to lead the country. As the battle lines are drawn, presidential candidates and reporters face off in the conflict zone known as "the campaign trail."
In honor of the 4 year mark and newly elected President, the Newseum
’s "Every Four Years: Presidential Campaigns and the Press," will give visitors a chance to explore the progression of media coverage of the presidential elections over the years. Included in the exhibit are the microphone used by Franklin D. Roosevelt to deliver his “Fireside Chats”, A quilt signed by reporters who traveled with John McCain on the "Straight Talk Express" during McCain's unsuccessful 2000 bid for the Republican nomination, and 2008 "Saturday Night Live" sketch, and the blue suit with a Barack Obama pin worn by Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton.
The best part about this exhibit is that it was updated daily throughout the 2012 campaign to highlight the latest news and photos from the campaign trail.
